About me

Hi there! Welcome to From Adventure With Love, a blog about travel (in a nutshell). My name’s Rachael and I’m a curious wanderluster from the UK with a thirst for adventure. I decided to create this blog for several reasons, I love to talk about travel, where I’ve been, where I’m going and also learn about other peoples travel journeys. This is a way for me to share my stories/tips with others and having something to look back at. I’ve been reading travel blogs for a while now, some of my favourites are:

www.neverendingfootsteps.com

www.backpackerbanter.com

www.youngadventuress.com

www.adventurouskate.com

And these are what originally inspired me to create my own and pursue my dream of long-term travel.

As of right now I have visited 9 countries, including my own and 6 US states:

United Kingdom

Ireland

France

Spain

Italy

Holland

Germany

Czech Republic

United States:

Florida

South Dakota

California

Nevada

Arizona

Hawaii

Over the past year I’ve been lucky enough to gaze up at the ceiling of the sistine chapel, get whipped by Krampus in Germany, watch the sunset from the Eiffel tower, take a river cruise through the Amsterdam canals, walk across the Charles Bridge and witness a family of wild Orca off the Californian coast. Travelling isn’t about ticking off countries or seeing who can see the most but about the memories you make that will stay with you forever.

In 2 months time I’ll be moving to British Columbia, Canada on an IEC Visa (more on this here) where I’ll be working for Whistler Backcomb resort. My visa is valid for 2 years but what will happen after the season is over is yet to be determined. I have a plan, but it’s only an “if” plan. Anything can happen at this point. I may fall in love with Canada and decide to spend the whole two years there!
