Hey there, Iโ€™m Christen. Iโ€™m a single 44-year-old gal with no kiddos or pets who, after hustling to build a life I thought I was supposed to have, I found myself trapped in a tower of stuff working hard to maintain a life I didn't want.
โ€‹
Frustrated and scared by my lack of motivation, physically and emotionally exhausted from trying to keep my life afloat while building a business I didn't see wanting long-term, and with no corporate safety net (I had quit my corporate job 2 years prior to pursue building my own business), I found myself daily crying out to God for answers.
โ€‹
He answered me with a fella who had slid into my DMโ€™s who happened to be traveling to the world and loving it. He was the one who gave me vision that I could live my life differently.
โ€‹
My biggest concern was โ€˜could I afford itโ€™. Funny enough, it turns out the cost to travel to a new country every three months was going to be about 35% less than living in Orlando. I had already been working on downsizing and simplifying my possessions & expenses so I could have some creative breathing room. So, it felt like the perfect time to restart by letting go of โ€˜what had beenโ€™ and take on the challenge of whittling down to only what would fit in a backpack.
โ€‹
And thatโ€™s where you find me now. In the midst of this new adventure where Iโ€™m venturing to exotic lands, confronting fears, becoming less binary, jumping off cliffs, kissing boys, trying a lot of new food, drink, culture, and meeting amazing people along the way.

Stayed in Lisbon during Covid - so most of what makes Lisbon, Lisbon was shut down. It was a cool landing pad for a few weeks while I figured out where in the world i could go next.

    I came here the autumn 2021. Before i had lived in another Turkish city which was amazing! But I had to live that place and came here. What can I say? My first real estate agent scammed me for 1500TL. And I couldn't rent any apartment for 6 months because I am a single woman and also my national is being considered as not the one with decent women. So finally after 2 weeks of searching and meetings with many completely rude and unprofessionally real estate agents I did find the apartment. What a

  • Tbilisi

    A good place for adventurous young types who enjoy their youth and want to date, meet other expats, etc. We didnโ€™t enjoy it as a young family though. Streets are unbearable for a stroller and the cost of living isnโ€™t that great if you want to live a proper lifestyle.

  • Seville

    Spent a month in Seville and had a blast. Quality of AirBnBs was great with 100MBPS internet to placate Zoom calls. I stayed in San Lorenzo / Feria / which was a trendy, LGBTQ+ vibe with countless tapas bars, restaurants, supermarkets, and beautiful young Spanish people. I much preferred it to Triana, which seems to be more touristy nowadays despite being billed as an โ€œauthenticโ€ experience. The old town is great for a weekend to do the major historical and tourist attractions which are wel

    I have been living in Porto since September. Portugal is currently in a hard covid lockdown so Porto is not at its best. But in better times the city is amazing. Beautiful, right near the beach, with excellent air and rail connectivity. English is widely spoken and the accommodations for visitors are diverse and excellent. Restaurants are also diverse and excellent. Prices for those used to northern Europe or USA will seem low. December, January are very rainy and can get cold, down to nearly 0

    Pros: -Great airport for connections to Africa and South America. -Has some really beautiful views. -Great fruit and fish. -Native Portuguese people are generally friendly and helpful. -Wonderful moderate climate (better than Spain) Cons: -The dirtiest major city I've seen in Europe. Filthy buildings and dog crap everywhere. -Unsafe - most other women I spoke to said they feel unsafe walking alone here (being leered at, whistled at and followed by the mostly immigrant men is a common occurrenc

  • Canggu

    Canggu is a great place to live. Im a remote worker and have lived here for most of COVID and then some. In total Im thinking something like 20 of the last 24 months! It is brilliantly priced for someone with a steady income who wants their money to go far. I spent about $3,000 USD living like a king with a prime location villa, private chef, the most expensive gym and spa membership, and eating out at least 10 times a week.
