Hey! Thanks for visiting my blog.
Who Am I?
I’m Gabby (short for Gabrielle). I am 20-something years old and currently a full-time college student studying Strategic Communication and Public Relations in Rutgers University, the state university of New Jersey where I currently live in. Since I was 4 years old, I realized I love going from place to place. It all started from living in a different country to family vacations to bonding with my amazing friends. As I grew older, I realized life was getting tougher by the year. Sometimes in life though, you need a break. I usually go take some sort of trip during my holiday breaks in between college or on the weekends and I use these breaks by at least doing something fun and positive. One of them is traveling, whether that’s outside the state or locally, I love discovering places that really feed onto your soul. It’s almost rewarding as it enlightens your perspective in this world we live in and enlightens the connection you feel from the ‘self’ to the extraordinary places that this beautiful earth has to offer us.
When I was a lot younger, I used to look at atlas books full of maps to learn my geography and be inspired by looking at the vintage pictures of scenery in these books. I would also spin around this huge globe my family used to have and I always had a curiosity what it’s like to go to that specific place. That curiosity in me always sparked inside me until this very day and I carry on that value of being mindful for adventures.
Why Did I Create This Site?
I made this travel blog to document the places I’ve gone to (kind of like an online diary!) and the wonderful or out-of-the-ordinary things I’ve discovered along my journeys. I also want to inform others, like yourself perhaps, to be inspired and to inspire others. Think of this as a guide book when you need ideas or clarification on places you plan to visit. I also want to share with you and help you discover that the sky’s the limit and that you’ll find beauty anywhere you step outside. While you hear the word ‘travel’, there is really no clear method of what it means to travel and that travel can mean different things to different people. It can mean flying over to a different state or country or it can mean just taking a drive to the beach nearby your town. I can say, however, I am not a full-time/nomad traveler nor do I plan to anytime soon and I am content balancing a life being surrounded by work, school, and my friends and family. It is possible.
I decided to take this step to combine my love for writing and taking pictures and also my love for finding connections outside my small town to create this platform full of utopias (our Earth is a utopia in so many aspects!!). I present to you: From One Girl to One World… Enjoy! 🙂
