Hey y’all, I’m Allie! I’m an adventure seeker and travel dreamer from Charlotte, North Carolina in the southeastern United States. I was born and raised in Charlotte, but have spent my time all over the place. I’m a former competitive figure skater (yes, even down here in the south!) and a current college student finishing up a Sport and Entertainment Management Degree with a Business Administration Minor. Oh, and I’m one stinkin’ proud dog momma!
My love for traveling started wayyy back when… I was on my first flight at 6 months old, and I haven’t stopped since! Growing up, I was able to travel for skating competitions, which is what really sparked my passion for going somewhere new. I went on my first international trip at 16 years old with a group from my high school. We did a 10-day tour of France and Monaco. That trip was what really ignited the fire in me to see other countries, cultures, and ways of life.
In school, I have studied writing and alongside that have found a love for photography. So naturally, I found a way to combine all of the things I love into one, and into a way that I can share with the world!
Before finding my love for travel writing/blogging, I worked in the athletics department at my home university in public relations and communications. When I moved back to Charlotte, I worked as a Certified Personal Trainer as well as own another business (I still do both of those)!
My goal is to inspire people to explore this crazy beautiful world we live in, and to live life how they want to live rather than based on societal rules. So far, at 21 years old, I have explored 27 states and 12 countries, and I have SO much more to go!
