My name is Marissa, and I am an outdoor enthusiast from Seattle with a passion for traveling. My bachelor’s degree is in Exercise Science, which was fitting since I’ve grown up playing sports and love being active. I went on to be a personal trainer and a Physical Therapist Assistant, which I still practice sometimes when I’m home from traveling.

After working in such physical jobs and being in the office for up to 10 hours at a time, I needed a break. I started traveling more and became addicted. I love discovering the unknown, learning how other cultures are, and testing my language skills in foreign countries.

My favorite places to explore are the Pacific Northwest and National Parks, so make sure to check out those posts for helpful tips! I also love going on road trips around the area as well as hiking as much as possible.

Finding new ways to stay active in each country visited is a goal I always have, whether it’s scuba diving in the Dominican Republic or hiking in Patagonia. I hope to go to all seven continents in the future. I look forward to sharing my travels with you, whether they’re near or far!
