About Me

Hello everyone my name is Lauren Smith and I am a spontaneous 26 year old from Phoenix, Arizona. I have been traveling all my life and it is a passion that I’m sure will never fade away. I definitely caught the travel bug from my parents at a young age and have now taken it upon myself to explore the world on my own. I feel that travel is a very important aspect to being cultured and growing as a person. I know it has changed me personally and will continue to as I carry on with my travels around the world.

I graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Business Marketing a few years ago.  I’m not quite ready for the “real world,” thus another excuse to continue seeing the world.  I have amazing parents and an older brother that I’ve done a lot of traveling with over the years, and they thankfully support my adventures.

I have a pretty good start with having been to about about 100 cities in 25 countries in only 26 short years. There are hundreds of other cities I can’t wait to experience throughout my lifetime. The majority of my travel has been in North America and Europe. I have been lucky enough to experience a lot of Europe while living in Spain for a bit. I absolutely love the culture, history, and unique cuisine and beverages of each country.  I spent a lot of time down in Australia and New Zealand and had the time of my life.  I worked, traveled, and took in all the Australian and Kiwi culture that I could.  I have recently moved to St Albans, England, which is right outside of London and have fallen in love with it here.  I plan to settle down here for a while and continue to explore more of Europe as it is practically my new backyard! :)

I plan on traveling for the rest of my life and hopefully living abroad for a lot of it. There really never is a dull moment in my life and I’m addicted to the spontaneity and adventure that traveling brings.

I can’t wait to share my tips and stories with all of you to hopefully help you all with your travels and to inspire you to get out there and see something new. :)
