About the Author

My Name is Niki. This is not the life I planned for.

This started as a blog to keep in touch with friends and family while I traveled when I moved to Europe from the USA. As I started traveling to less popular places and countries, it became a resource for other travelers navigating the more wild roads. The more nomadic I became, the less I was able to keep up with my posts, and the backlog of locations to write about became longer and longer.

So this blog has transitioned from journal to guide to archive, and now is becoming a bit of a memoir of the experiences I had, but was too busy adventuring to write about at the time.

I’m still adventuring. Instead of a macro undertaking of constantly new cities and countries, it is turning micro and focusing on leading a well traveled life without straying far from the comfort of home.
