About Me

Do you know what’s beautiful? Being 22 with the power to see the world.

My name is Emily and traveling is what gives me life. And writing about it is what gives me the ability to travel as I please.

My location independent career as a content writer allows me to work from just about anywhere with wifi, which is pretty nice. I am a travel content writer over at Quill to Keys Content Writing and a lifestyle blogger at Tea Addicts Anonymous.

I’m not exactly a digital nomad, but I am often on the go. My homebase is in Fort Lauderdale, and I was born and halfway raised in Pittsburgh (I headed south a couple months before I turned 13). Even though I’ve lived here less than half my life, I definitely consider sunny South Florida my home.

My career as a freelance travel writer has given me the freedom to follow my passions, and I am so excited to share that with all of you.

I am huge on traveling on a budget, so you will find tons of tips and tricks on the blog about traveling without breaking the bank. You may even catch a glimpse at some of my adventures!
