The Untethered Girl

I left my stable job and financial security in the US to wander the world for 12 months. Some may call it crazy, but I call it my chance to be untethered.

It is about allowing myself to do something scary and daring myself to look at life through a different lens.

Follow along with me through my journey to learn about the world or maybe to get inspired for your own travels.
