Hi! This is Sophia. My friend, Lora, and I are traveling all across Europe for the next few months, so sit back and relax as I take you through tourist sites, natural beauties, awesome food, and exciting people. I hope to teach you about its history, the best and worst tourist sites to visit, and great vegetarian food abroad, along with beautiful photos to share my experience with you.

Over the next few months, I plan to explore everything from beautiful churches in Paris to Saint Patrick’s Day in Dublin. I am most excited for my trip to the ancient edifices in Rome and the fantastical rocky structures on the beaches in southern Portugal. Budget traveling has taught me how to find cheap accommodations and fun free things to see and do in all the greatest places to visit!

A bit about myself and how I ended up backpacking: I graduated college with a Bachelor’s degree in Bioenvironmental Science. I’ve left my job working at a plant disease diagnostic lab to backpack for a few months.

I’ve dreamed of travelling the world my whole life. As a kid, my family would take road trips across the United States. Because of that, I love hiking, nature, science and history museums, weird foods, and weird places.

This last summer I participated in a study abroad opportunity to Fuzhou, China. The month I spent there has been one of the best experiences in my life.

My itch to travel is back. I’m fired up and ready to get this show on the road, so sit back and relax as we all embark on this adventure together!
