Who is this random wandering girl?

Hey!

about abbie

 

I’m Abbie and I’m a California raised girl who left her small cow town for dreams of making it in the city.

I discovered my love of travel at an early age. I was a Navy brat and my dad would often tell me stories of his world adventures “at sea” and that sparked a dream in me to want to see the world for myself.

I work full-time “making magic” for a mouse so I only get to travel twice a year, but that doesn’t stop me from incorporating travel into my every day life!

I recently discovered a love for photography and in January 2017 I’m going back to school (after a 5 year hiatus) to see where that path will lead me and so I welcome you into this new journey in my life.

I’ve spent 8 years trying to figure out how to get my “ish” together. I’m still a mess and have no idea what I’m doing most of the time or where I’ll go but I’ve got a lot of ideas of where I want to go–and that’s all the really matters right?!

“Wanderlust consumed her; foreign hearts and exotic minds compelled her. She had  gypsy soul and a vibrant hope for the unknown.”–d. marie
