Hi, I’m Allison!

I started this blog in 2016 after leaving my job as a teacher on what was supposed to be a three-month (then a one-year) backpacking trip. Well, that gap year quickly turned into eight, and here I am, a full-time traveler and still blogging about my adventures.

Over the last eight years, my travel style has changed a lot, but one constant remains the same: I am eternally fascinated by the world’s extremes.

While this blog reflects all my travels, right now it focuses on my current areas of interest: the Tropics and the Nordics, particularly the Arctic region. As a full-time traveler, packing to move between the two is a nightmare, but I wouldn’t have my life any other way!

Love palm trees and beaches? Let’s go to the tropics!

As an avid diver, I’ve spent a lot of time in the Indo-Pacific, South Pacific, and Caribbean regions. I share detailed dive guides on my diving and snorkeling blog, but here, I also share all the fun adventures you can have on land, too.

From chasing waterfalls to hiking volcanoes to immersing myself in various island cultures around the world, I never feel more alive than when I’m in the tropics. You can check out some of my favorite tropical destinations below.

French Polynesia
Indonesia
Fiji
Hawaii

Warm weather not your thing? Let’s head north instead!

As much as I love the island breeze and laissez-faire attitude of the tropics, I often find myself longing for the crisp air, drastic landscapes, and cozy design of the Nordics – and especially the Arctic.

Whether it’s snowmobiling across a polar desert, dog-sledding in a birch forest, searching for the Northern lights, or simply pausing in a beautifully designed coffee shop, I find so much peace during my time spent in the far north. You can see some of my favorite destinations in Scandinavia and the Nordics below.

Finland
Sweden
Norway
Faroe Islands

Bucket List Travel

All my travel guides and itineraries are 100% human-written and thoroughly fact-checked, because the last thing I want is for the bucket list adventure you worked so hard for to not go as planned!

These guides share all the practical information for planning your own trip: from pitfalls to avoid to tips to maximize your enjoyment, things that can only be explained by a real, flawed human going out and doing it themselves.
