About The Blog

(Over)sharing and obsessive documenting got me into this.

Through vibrant pictures and (occasionally foulmouthed) stories, I try to convey all the magic and wonder of discovering new places, like a park just around the corner, or a town somewhere so remote that it requires more transportation methods than I can list. Or the nostalgia of revisiting old favorites, those that you get hell for (“You’re going to Disneyland, again?”) because no one understands why they’re so special to you, but you.

For one reader or a thousand, I hope these chronicles will evoke the same marvel (and laughter!) as they did in me, and inspire you to go on some fantastic adventures of your own.



About Me

Hey there! I’m Andrea. I’m a US-born Mexican with a German last name who’s extremely proud of her heritage.

I studied Tourism Admin in college with a minor in Hotel Management, because someday I want to own a lodge. But really, I love traveling, eating, and truly connecting with a place and its people, which is why I then pursued a Master’s in Food Tourism. I consider myself a realist with a positive spin, but I won’t sugarcoat things. I might pixie dust them, though, since I’m a former Cast Member and lover of all things Disney. I seem to be both always saving money and perpetually broke. And I love animals. Mostly cats.


 Still curious? Here’s what I’m up to now.
