What’s a “Traveling Lily?”

A traveling Lily is a 30 something, high energy, happy, hippie of sorts. She’s fun, open to adventure and really excited to go all of the places! She loves neon colors, taking chances and has an unquenchable thirst to see the world and a passion for capturing it. Amongst talking to strangers she also loves to laugh and is super budget savvy. Embracing alternative travel and finding great deals are amongst some of her many talents.

Living life one adventure at a time

I always envied those people who traveled extensively for months, even years on end, never imagining I could be in their shoes. But I’ve proven to myself that it is possible and I’ve made it my reality. Now things like “I want your life”, “I live vicariously through you” and “what you’re doing is amazing” are said to me regularly!

The photographer

It’s probably not surprising that my love of travel goes hand in hand with a profound passion for photography. Growing up I was inspired by my grandfather’s ancient of collection of National Geographic Magazines. The images of all those exotic, wondrous places inspired me deep in my soul. It’s no wonder once I was old enough to buy plane tickets I started traveling and snapping away like crazy! Here’s a post with some of my best landscape photos.

  1. I found you in the Commons and followed you home. Hope you had a good night’s sleep after all your exertions. I know what you mean. It takes me ages to get my head around all this stuff and suddenly hours have gone! But your page looks great.
