Travel called — it wants you back.
The cabin fever is real as we’ve been cooped up in our homes for the past however many months. Whether you’re booking a flight ASAP or wanting to play it safe for a while, many of us have been daydreaming about travel. We miss the thrill of takeoff, the exhilaration of exploration, the elation of discovery.
If I’m describing you, I created Round Trip: The Magazine, a 20+ page physical + digital experience, with you in mind. It’s jam-packed with articles about how I moved to France during a pandemic to teach English, the best French villages to add to your bucket list and how I saved $7,000 to move abroad.
Just because we haven’t been traveling much this past year doesn’t mean it’s not on our minds. My heart in creating this magazine is to provide a more immersive, intimate experience than my blog posts and Instagram stories.
It’s more than just the practical tips but also the raw + real, juicy deets. I spill the tea on how travel and life abroad has taught me the best lessons about insecurity and confidence, heartbreak and love.
I’ve spent hours pouring my heart into these pages, and I’m confident these words will not only help you plan your future trips but also inspire you to chase your passions down harder.
Okay, so what’s inside this magazine? Tell me more!

“Getting dumped, being rejected for a date party, feeling hurt by mean girls, thinking about how I made a dumb decision, drinking the pain of not being chosen — all of these feel so small when I’m abroad. These painful memories and uncomfortable emotions pale in comparison to the exhilaration and life I feel when I travel. “
