20th February 2017

I just got back from a trip to Tokyo, Japan, and OH MY GAHD. This city is seriously a dream. It’s such a magical place with a hidden gem on every block. The people are ridiculously nice and I’ve never felt so safe in a city. Tokyo is in such immaculate shape, and I can say I’m 100% sure I’ve never seen a cleaner city.

How I’ve Seen 5 Continents By Age 23

13th February 2017

As many of you may know if you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, I recently got back from Tokyo. Last month, I visited London, and the month before that, it was New York. Last year I spent awhile in Europe, and the year before that, I lived in Peru for awhile.

Traveling around the world so often at such a young age has been a blessing and I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunities that have come my way.

If you’re interested in seeing all of my travel posts in an organized setup, you can check it out here. I was an au pair for a short while and wrote a few informative articles on that, as well as spent time at a special needs orphanage in Peru.

So let’s get started with a secret that many of you might not know, starting with #1 below. 

Traveling on a budget is very doable, but there are other secrets and hacks when it comes to traveling cheaply. Find out here how you can see the world on a budget. Continue reading

Top Travel Posts To Save You Time And Money

13th January 2017

Here on FITnancials, I talk all about health and saving money. I started traveling a couple years ago, which motivated me to start writing more about how to travel the world affordably.

I’ve been to 5 continents altogether, backpacked throughout Europe by myself and met people from all over the world. I grew up pretty reliant and dependent on others, so doing this was no small feat, which is why I always encourage anyone and everyone to travel solo at least once in their lives. It was an overwhelmingly positive experience that brought me out of my comfort zone and taught me a lot about myself.

Blogging has allowed me to travel full-time. If you’re interested in starting a blog and working from home, read my post on how to start a blog here.

Below are my top posts that will get you started in traveling, whether it be au pair life, Couchsurfing, or backpacking the world.Check out these travel resources that will save you time, money, and tons more. Learn about au pair life, traveling on a budget, and backpacking throughout Europe. Continue reading

2nd January 2017

It’s almost 2017 (and maybe already 2017 when you’re reading this), so I thought I would share my top health and fitness posts from this year. I’ve combined my top posts all in one post, so you can gain a lot of knowledge all from here.

2016 was a life changing year for me. I left for Europe for a couple months to Au Pair, traveled Western Europe solo, went to Europe again to see London (my new favorite city!), moved to Texas (never thought I would, but I LOVE Austin!), and became a full-time blogger. 2016 was a huge learning experience for me. 2017 is going to be another amazing year and I’m super stoked to see what the future holds. Blogging has done crazy things for me and has completely changed my life. You can read my post on how to start a blog here.
