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!

Dear Anna [Jan 2, 2018]

Dear Anna [Jan 2, 2018]

When I originally mentioned on Instagram that I write myself letters all the time and open them later at a set date (kind of like a time capsule with wishes of sorts) I got some questions about what to include in such a letter. As nervous as this oversharing makes me...

What I Know For Sure After 8 Months of Solo Travel

What I Know For Sure After 8 Months of Solo Travel

These past 8 months the lessons have been many. Some were difficult to learn, others funny, and some just downright embarrassing. Nevertheless, I survived my first 8 months abroad traveling solo and came away with many lessons. Here are the ten things I know for sure...

Control

Control

I have been thinking a lot lately about purpose, more specifically, the manifestation of it. As 2018 draws to a close with less than 3 weeks remaining many of us may find ourselves getting anxious. The unknown is a daunting thing. It doesn't matter how many new years...

The Secret

The Secret

No one is coming to save you. You're the key to getting unstuck - not a guru or teacher, or some other person who's done what you so desperately want to do. Yes, there are lessons to be learned from others and there is something to be said for harnessing external...

Solitude

Solitude

Solitude is its own kind of reward. Ask any introvert. We live for it, need it, take breaths only for the promise of being reunited with ourselves away from the watchful gaze and strange cacophony of other humans and their activities. It’s been a week since I left...

Sharing is Difficult

Sharing is Difficult

About a month ago I shared a post from my travel blog on Facebook. As these things go there were mostly favorable comments. But one in particular stood out to me - a young man who thought it necessary to take 20 seconds out of his day to let me know the post was...

Shaking Off the Rut

Shaking Off the Rut

Today I stumbled across Steven Pressfield’s blog via Seth Godin’s blog (gotta love the way the internet rabbit hole works) and in addition to feeling inspired, I felt motivated to act.Seth makes it a point of duty to post to his blog daily, while Pressfield seems to...

Thank You

Thank You

Throughout the course of a life so many people have an impact, make a difference, provide meaning. But more often than not, most of them seldom hear "Thank You", not because we're ungrateful per se, but because sometimes we fail to recognize their impact or worse, we...

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.
