My name is Kara and I like hiking, stargazing, and reading just about anything I can get my hands on. This is my travel blog.

Where am I now?

I am based in northern Peru until December 2015, eating lots of ceviche and wearing sunscreen in winter.

And where have I been?

I have written most extensively about Argentina, California, Liberia, and Ghana; but I’ve shared stories and pictures from all over the world. (Take a look at my travel map, if you’re so inclined.) For a complete list of my posts, see the archives, or search by destination in the page header.

I started this blog when I left for a semester abroad in Argentina in 2012 so that friends and family knew I was okay. Turns out that I enjoyed writing it, my mom (and a couple of others) liked reading it, and here we are.


  1. Hi there! I could have sworn I’ve been to
    this site before but after looking at many of the posts I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyways, I’m definitely happy I came across it and I’ll be
    book-marking it and checking back regularly!

    1. I don’t think that’s too important. Travel when and where you can, enjoy yourself and make sure to learn something about where you’re going–that’s the good thing about travel, regardless of where you go!

  2. Hi Freedman! Thanks for popping over to my blog! I’m honoured :D You’re so well-travelled in South America (it’s my dream to make a dent in SA one day so I’m in awe!) All the best with your travelling – It’s always lovely to meet someone who loves travelling as much as I do (:

    1. Thanks! It´s really quite simple actually. The maps.google.com website has a link emblem that you can click to embed the image or just add a link once you´ve zoomed into your desired location. To add postmarks you have to have a google account and create a new map. I have google help pages extremely useful to explain all of that.
