My name is Liz, and I’m perpetually running late. I also tend to live according to my own life clock, and my current focus is traveling the world. (And I’m trying my best to keep running from anyone and anything that tries to put me in a box.)

In a span of 9 months in 2016, I traveled solo to every continent except Antarctica, to a total of 25 countries. I’ve yet to find a feeling as invigorating as setting foot in a new country alone, and then successfully navigating around while immersing myself in a foreign culture.

I encourage everyone interested in traveling to make it a priority, too. It’s not impossible to finance, set aside the time, and make it a reality–and I hope my story proves that.
