Hey there! My name is Stephanie Anna Nguyen. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. I speak fluent Vietnamese, I have hazel eyes, and I have two older sisters.
I attended college at the University of California San Diego located in La Jolla and earned a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Communications with a minor in both Business and Theatre.
A few months before graduating from University, I decided to jump on the opportunity to study abroad in Rome and surprisingly, I ended up traveling and backpacking to 16 different countries in Europe for 6 months.
After coming home from one of the best experiences of my life, I was very broke, smelled of the same old dirty clothes, did not have any job interviews or career plans lined up as soon as I came back, and no cell phone. Can you say hot mess? LOL.
Since coming home, I still wanted to continue exploring the world and everything around me, so I decided to make it my mission in sharing my journey and passion for spontaneous adventure while empowering others to globally travel the world more, inspiring them to live life to the fullest and go confidently in the direction of their dreams, in addition to helping and guiding others in maximizing their travel experience, discovering the best hotels, destinations, products, clothing, lifestyle brands, and new adventures while I continue to connect, educate, build and maintain relationships with my audience around the world.
Not many people are born savvy travelers and as cliche as it sounds traveling made me grow a lot as a person and along the way, I learned my fair share of lessons and unexpected mishaps. So this blog is also dedicated to helping you avoid A LOT of mistakes I’ve made which have taught me valuable life lessons. I’ll also be sharing my own journey of growth, self-discovery, the beauty & diversity of the world around me, my appreciation for the little things in life, and the freedom to embrace the excitement of the unknown, and how all of this left me with an eye-opening and life-changing adventure forever.
I believe that the more we travel, the more we create memories, experiences, can reflect, grow as people, expand our understanding of our world, make meaningful connections and life-long friendships along the way.
Hope you enjoy reading my crazy fun-filled adventures as I relive them by writing them one-by-one and sorry in advance from jumping from Europe to America, and to other places I’ll be going to while juggling to blog about my past and present-day stories. So try your best to keep up and follow along on my journey because living in this thing called “life” is an amazingly beautiful crazy adventure of unexpected wild rides. Plus there is so much out there in the world that each one of us needs to see, experience, and enjoy.
And hope this site inspires you to travel more and prepares you for what lies ahead. Sending my best wishes as you embark on your own incredible journey and that life will bring you tons of fun-filled memories and unexpected spontaneous adventures that you can cherish for many years to come because you deserve it.
So thanks for taking the time out of your busy day to read my blog. Hope you’ll find some useful travel destinations, products, tips, and much more. 🙂
