about me

bio

I am Ana, a free-spirited, fun-loving, full-time vagabonde! Since graduating college in May of 2010, I have been on a mission to travel the world, live life to the fullest and spread good vibes along the way! It has been an epic adventure through nearly 40 countries so far, and I would like to share my experiences with others who are interested in designing their lives differently, as well as to inspire those who are interested in travel!

I have always valued experiences over possessions, and although I have no base, no apartment and no car…I have explored through some of the most beautiful places, encountered the most amazing people, and have landed the best jobs abroad!

I am a one-way ticket gypsy, ready to take on whatever comes my way. I don’t know where I’m going until I am there, and I don’t know what will happen along the way…but I wouldn’t trade in my crazy nomadic lifestyle, amazing memories and newfound friendships for anything!

I want to show others that is possible for ordinary people, such as myself, to do EXTRAORDINARY THINGS! I want people to realize that anything is possible, and that their mindset is the only thing standing between them and their dreams!

Through the years, I have followed my passion and my heart above all else, and it hasn’t failed me yet! It is my current mission to share my personal story in order to encourage people to chase their dreams, have fun, go with the flow and live in the now!

dream big. love life. spread good vibes.
