Welcome to my Travel Blog!

I’m Erika, the writer and creator of Erika’s Travelventures. I’m from the beautiful state of Wyoming, in the U.S.A.

After saving money for two years, I quit my job to travel the world in October, 2017. As of 2020, I’ve visited over 40 countries.

I’m passionate about experiencing new cultures, making friends in different countries, trying new (vegetarian) foods, and finding the best viewpoints and hiking trails around the globe.

Travel blogging since October, 2018
