Welcome!

I’m Anna. It seems you’ve stumbled upon my little spot here in the webisphereThis is where I talk travel, dream chasing, and living our best lives. (Yes, I said our, because we’re in this together now.)

You don’t need to go crazy and quit your 9 to 5 to travel full time like I did (or maybe you do. If that’s the case I won’t judge). But if there’s a dream you’re scared of chasing, or a purpose you’re nervous about stepping into I have news for you. It can be done! I am living proof.

Psstt…

If you’re here to hire me for my email marketing and copywriting prowess (or to learn more about email marketing) you’ll want to go to afiwimarketing.com. Otherwise, stick around. This is where all the fun stuff goes down.

It’s only impossible until it’s done.

Prior to 2017, I had never traveled further than North America & the Caribbean. I had big dreams but I was too scared to make them happen. Then for my 32nd birthday vacation, I visited Asia and something had to give. A lot has happened since then and I can’t wait for what the future holds!

Why I still stay in hostels when I travel

Why I still stay in hostels when I travel

"So what do you do with your stuff when you're going to sleep or going out?" This was a question from a friend who'd never stayed in a hostel and who swore he could never do it. I've heard this or similar questions from friends time and time again, and it's one that...

Instagram

This is probably the best place to catch me as I try to post regularly and I’m super responsive to comments and DMs. Also, I like to think I drop gems in my captions. You be the judge.
