Hi there! I am so glad you found me! My mission is to empower you to #TakeYourTimeOff and explore the world.
I started this blog as a way to keep family and friends in the loop when I went on a 3-week trip to Asia in 2011. Although I’ve always enjoyed traveling, it wasn’t until a trip to Peru in 2012 that I started to think about ways to make travel a priority in my life. Still, it was not something that happened overnight. In the modest Bulgarian household I grew up in, money had always been tight. Even as I advanced in my career, I still lived in fear of not having “enough money.” It took a couple of brain surgeries for me to let go of that fear and switch from a scarcity mindset to an abundance mindset! Now I add up some of my discretionary income, a generous amount of vacation time from work and my shrewdly collected and applied United miles to travel as much as I possibly can. When I am not travelling, I play tourist in the magnificent city of Los Angeles, my home since 2009.
Again, welcome to my blog! If you’re not sure where to begin, start with my latest post and go from there!
