About Me

So who am I and what is this blog about?

My name is Jaime and I just got home from a two year backpacking trip around the world. I don’t know how to describe it, but to say that it was the most amazing thing I have ever done in my life and know I will never be the same because of it. Before this trip I had spent my whole life living in Houston, Texas and aside from a few vacations and visiting family in Mexico I hadn’t seen much of the world. I had been working since I was 15 and felt that I was a slave to Corporate America. I hit rock bottom at 23 when I was arrested for drinking and driving. It was that event that helped me become who I am today. At 25 I quit my job sold just about all my belongings and traveled the world for 2 years. During those two years I visited 30 countries and over 100 cities. I also fell in love in Cairo, but giving the circumstance he was the last goodbye. I am now 27 heart broken back at home living debt free and currently working to save for my next epic adventure, because I believe the world is too damn beautiful to not see as much of it as possible. Still have no clue where I will be going, but oh I’m going.

I do believe “everything happens for a reason” and know that all the choices I have made in the past have brought me to where I am today. It came with a lot of sacrifices, but as soon as I knew my dream of traveling the world was attainable I went for it.

On this blog I document my questions, thoughts, tips, adventures and anything else that comes with my journey round-the-world and my life. I want to show everyone that it is possible to breakaway and be happy. Oh & share my love for Kelly Clarkson as well!!!
