Who am I?
Hey there. I’m Michelle, a 24-year-old trying to squeeze as much out of life as I can. I thrive most in uncomfortable situations, which has led me to go on some weird online dates, becoming a U.S. tour guide, and, of course, traveling throughout the world. To give you an idea of my mis(h)adventures: I’ve couchsurfed in Morocco, got into a Martin Garrix concert in Las Vegas for free, crashed a rental car in Santorini.
After taking a post-grad gap year in Grenoble, France, I started my journey as a wanderer. So far, I’ve been stalked, embarrassed, gorged, courageous; a sightseer, tourist, traveler; I’ve planned trips for myself and for others. On the right-hand sidebar, you’ll find a space for my upcoming trips! I also play around with photography and occasionally make video montages to document my adventures. You’ll find these under Travel>Travel Videos. I recommend starting with A Year Abroad, my favorite one, here:
What am I doing right now?
Right now, I’m working summers as a Tour Leader, leading groups of max 14 people across the U.S.A and traveling/working during the off-season. Yeah, sounds like the perfect job, right?
In the winters, I’m taking whatever challenge comes at me that also allows me to make summa dat dough.
I believe that travel makes me a better person, that the travel community is my community, that the people who have had experiences abroad are ones I really connect with. I firmly believe that it’s not where you go, it’s who you meet on the way. And I usually prize relationships and human connections above all else.
