Selena’s Story

In 2016 I took a leap of faith and decided to trade my comfortable Los Angeles lifestyle for an adventure abroad. It had always been a dream of mine to live in Europe, so I convinced my then boyfriend, Jacob (now husband), to move to Europe with me. We left that Spring for a three-month road trip through the Balkans, promising friends and family we’d share photos of our travels through Instagram before we settled in our final destination — Amsterdam.

Twelve countries and six thousand kilometers later, I decided to start a travel blog with Jacob’s help. When we were planning our road trip, I struggled to find a source of inspiration that combined beautiful photos with the actual information I needed to reference for our journey and as a result, had used Pinterest to piece together everything we needed. That’s when I decided our blog would focus on travel guides specifically designed to both inspire and inform other’s trips.

What happened next was completely unplanned. With our Instagram growing quicker than either of us could’ve imagined, we started receiving interest from brands to take photos and videos of hotels, destinations, and products while traveling. Instead of spending the majority of our time at home in Amsterdam, we kept finding ways to travel — whether the trips were planned by us or sponsored by hotels or tourism boards. We fell in love with the creative aspect of what we had started together: finding ways to continuously improve our photos, sharing guides from the cities and countries we explored, researching new destinations, guest blogging about our travels, creating videos together, and so much more.

It’s been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life starting a blog, and I’m still learning from it every day. I never knew that my passion for travel would lead to such a positive lifestyle change — one that seemed completely unattainable to me only a couple years ago! I hope my story inspires you to pursue the life you want, whether that means taking trips on weekends or becoming a full-time traveler.
