How would you describe your travel style?

My travel style is budget-friendly, I plan my trips based off of how cheap the transportation ticket is. Once I find a great deal, I jump on it and go from there!

What's been your favorite place you've traveled to?

My favorite place I’ve traveled too so far is Gili Air in Indonesia. It is such a gorgeous little island filled with friendly locals. The beach is a walk away and the bars have great food and cheap drinks.



Once travel restrictions are lifted, where would you travel to first?

Once travel restrictions ease up I don’t really know where I’ll want to go. I was thinking about flying back to Europe but I’ve been reading some cool things about budget-friendly trips to Japan so that’s on my list too!

What advice do you have on traveling on a budget?

My favorite tip for traveling on a budget is to keep your eyes on the prize! If you think a ticket couldn’t get any cheaper keep searching. There are so many sites that can help you find the best deal!


What's one thing you'd go back through security for if you forgot it?

That is such a stressful situation I haven’t been through yet lmao. *knock on wood* Let’s hope that doesn’t happen anytime soon. I would DEFINITELY go back for my phone.

What's your favorite thing about traveling the world?

My favorite thing about traveling the world is being able to be immersed in different cultures. I wouldn’t be the person I am today without traveling.
