Hi, I’m Ebonee!
I’m a travel and lifestyle writer based in Williamsburg, Virginia. After living and working in New York City for several years (first as a media planner at an advertising agency and then as a journalist at a TV network), I decided to leave in 2016 to travel around the world for almost eight months. That trip completely changed the course of my life! It opened my eyes up to a whole new world of possibilities and new opportunities (i.e. this travel blog).
It also made me realize how accessible travel can be when you’re equipped with the proper tools and knowledge. You can actually make your dream trip happen anywhere. I’ve learned so much about how to be a savvy traveler and therefore have made it my mission to teach other wanderluster’s like you how to get the most out of any traveling experience, even if you’re on a budget.
There’s a misconception that traveling is expensive, and yes it can be, but there are ways to start traveling now even if it’s local travel. My new mantra is “think globally, act locally.” I’ll show you how to create awesome local experiences on the blog too. In addition to blogging, I also work remotely as a freelance journalist.
When I’m not traveling and sharing stories/resources to help others travel on a budget, I enjoy trying out new healthy recipes, going on runs, reading, and spending time with family and friends. I love sharing these aspects of my life through photos and videos with you in hopes of inspiring you to go after your wildest dreams as I’ve been inspired to go after mine.
