A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, and oh what a journey it has been!

Before I was ever a blogger, I was just another girl trying to live her best life. Growing up in small-town Orange, Texas, I had a very modest upbringing. My parents were really young and they were divorced by the time I was 2. My mom battled addiction and we didn’t really have much to begin with. Needless to say, traveling wasn’t even a thought during that time in my life.

My focus was more on survival mode and creating a better life than the one I’d been given. I put myself through nursing school, graduated with honors, and made my way out to San Diego alone for a nursing job.

In 2006, I took a 2 week trip to Europe with some friends. Little did I know that it would change the course of my life. Being outside of my comfort zone in a foreign land, had me taking on new challenges while experiencing life in a whole new way. Travel made me feel so alive and I knew I wanted more, but I had no idea how I was ever going to pay for it.

So of course I did what any other 25 year old would do and turned to Google for the answer to my problem. Searching “How to Travel for Free” led me straight into the wonderful world of Travel Hacking. Finding ways to make something out of nothing was already my specialty because I lived it for so long, so this was a no-brainer.

Soon enough I was an expert at travel hacking and graduated to the magical world of Error Fares. Using these methods, I was able to travel the world for pennies. I once went to Amsterdam for the weekend because it was $193, and before that I snagged an around the world ticket for $325. This was all done in between working my 12-hour shifts as a nurse of course.

Everyone I met wondered how I was able to pull it off. So in 2016, I started this blog and built the Complete Guide to Error Fares. I always loved photography and took endless photos of everything when traveling. Shortly after I started sharing my travels on Instagram, brands took notice of my work and I was offered paid partnerships through my content within the first year.

In 2018, I was able to quit my nursing job and was pretty much exploring a new country once a month as a full time travel blogger. All of my hard work had paid off and I was truly living my dream.

In 2019, the unexpected happened. I was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer and my whole world changed yet again. Being forced to take a break from travel to go through chemotherapy, I found myself searching for new meaning in my life. I began to see life in a whole new way, and I decided to share what I learned about nurturing my mind, body and soul. I also felt called to share more of my story to empower others facing their own challenges.

Life is full of twists and turns, but every challenge is an opportunity for growth. I’ve faced many challenges throughout my life and I’ve gotten pretty good at overcoming adversity. Mindset is everything, and it can help you or hurt you. The choice is yours.

My purpose here is to inspire you to live your adventure through creating a life that you love. Trust me when I say that there is nothing in life that is out of your reach if you are fully committed to it.

The only impossible journey is the one that you never begin. Take the first step.

To your next adventure,

Kamelia
