Oh hey, It’s so nice to have you here! Welcome aboard. My full name is Brittany but please call me Britt. A born and raised New Yorker, turned Jersey girl, turned globetrotter that eventually landed me in Madrid, Spain.
The Spanish capital I now call home. Olè!

If you’re wondering how I got here, I’ll tell ya! 4 years ago in 2016, I made a decision to no longer commit to things that didn’t bring me joy.
I traded the security of a 9-5 and packed many, many, bags to be an English teacher abroad in Thailand.
Many around me were confused. They didn’t get why the comfort zone was being abandoned.
Looking from the outside in, my life seemed great. However there was a huge void for growth and adventure.
I knew I had to go somewhere different to experience the change I was yearning for.
And that’s what I did. I solo traveled to learn, and the more I learned on my own..
the more I fell in love with travel, and the harder I worked to be able to continue this lifestyle.
I’m here to share all the information I know in hopes it genuinely helps you get to your final destination easier.
From time to time, we’ll spice it up in our kitchens with foods from around the globe.
Many jobs later, I have been blessed enough to visit 18 countries, living in 3, and have attended countless number of music events abroad.
