Hi, I’m Avagail!

I’m a Bay Area (northern California) native, who loves living the expat life. I used to think that travel was a “once or few times a year” thing until I got a taste of living abroad for 3 months in Italy at the end of 2013. I moved back to California, but knew in my heart I wanted to leave again. Fast forward to 2016, I moved to South Korea to teach English for a year – or so I thought. One year turned to four years, and though I’m back in California for the time being I already have my next destination planned!

As I lived abroad and visited other countries, I met many people from around the world. One of my favorite things is connecting with others by sharing travel tales. Not just what you see on “the ‘Gram,” but the real, raw, and authentic experiences behind the pictures. The not-so-glamorous side of traveling. Allowing others to transport me to places I’ve never been through these stories, I feel like I’ve explored more than just the 20 countries I’ve been fortunate to visit so far. It’s these stories that I aim to share with the world through my adventures!
