Hi friends! Welcome to Lauren on Location! I’m Lauren, the girl behind the blog.
I’m a 24-year-old with a wicked case of wanderlust, on an ongoing mission to see, taste and experience as much of this wonderful world as possible!
Right now, I’m simply pursuing my “happy.” I’m determined to fall madly, deeply and unconditionally in love with my life. And hopefully inspire you to do the same.
I claimed this little corner of the Internet, to provide a source of inspiration, both for myself and for others. To share an real inside look at the life of a 20-something traveler, the ups and the downs.
This is my life, in one organized, yet chaotic nutshell. Triumphs, trials and fails.
When it comes to travel, I’m not the sell all my stuff on Ebay and commit my life to the open road kind of traveler. For one, I absolutely loath living out of a suitcase. For two, I’m not that courageous.
I prefer a less gutsy, more secure approach to exploring, one that involves having a home base. I like the familiarity of a routine, the feeling of being comfortable and situated and always having a place to come back and call home between my travels.
For the past 3 years I’ve been living abroad and teaching to travel. Up until this point, this approach has allowed me to call 3 continents home, while traveling in the process!
Quick Facts About Me
I eat too much, nap too often and constantly change my mind. At any given point I have up to 10 running to-do lists, but I procrastinate like crazy. I have a deep affection for all things fluffy, furry, cuddly and adorable. I’m a big fan of corny jokes and the belly laugh. I’m a shop-a-holic (diagnosed and work in progress) and a wannabe minimalist. I also take way too many pictures. Of. Everything.
Oh and I tend to be subtly sarcastic, overly enthusiastic, and use way too many 🙂 & !!!
So now that you know
all too much about me…
Why read Lauren on Location?
Well, if my captivating stories and incredibly witty writing aren’t enough to draw you in….
I’m a big proponent of honesty & realistic expectations. Everything I do, everything I write about, it’s possible and obtainable for almost anyone.
Despite what my loving parents tell me, I’m not particularly special. I’m not a genius and no, I didn’t win the lottery. No one plans my trips for me and no one pays me to travel. (Well not yet anyway- hey potential sponsors!)
I’m just an ordinary girl with intentions to live this life of mine to the absolute fullest, wherever that may take me.
If I can do it, you can do it too.
