young woman seeks long-term relationship with backpack, journal, map & great food. must be inexpensive.

So I graduated college in May 2012 with a B.A. in Creative Writing and French and more debt than I’d like to admit. I love to read, travel, eat and write about all the above. Travel has a bad reputation for being expensive, and since I have thousands in negative money (loans. sigh.), I needed to figure out a way to make travel happen while keeping my bank account relatively unaffected.

Determined (I need travel like I need chocolate), I’ve managed to take dozens of trips while on a very tight budget. The Wanderlust Manifesto records my tips and tricks, with a side of inspiration and anecdotes for good taste. Enjoy!


Places I’ve Explored

Places I felt the most connected to:

  • San Francisco
  • New Orleans
  • Barcelona (mostly due to Gaudi’s work there)
  • Grenoble
  • Paris
