Greetings! I come from California but have been traveling through South America, currently Europe... and many more places next. I love vegan food, cats, showing off my moves on a dance floor and sharing my travel experience and perspective. I believe travel is for anyone at any budget and am always excited to share and answer questions about how WorldPackers makes that possible.
