Hey I’m Hannah! I am an avid traveler, backpacker, photographer, home chef, and independent mobile app developer!

I created this website to share trip reports from the places that I visit on my travels, and highlight the lessons I that learned on each of my adventures. In addition to writing all about the cool places and hidden gems that I visit, I like to share my packing list in my trip reports. It feels like no matter how many trips I take, I always seem to forget to pack at least one important item and end up bringing some things along that I don’t end up needing at all. While it is very important to be well-prepared for your next adventure, between limited space in a backpacking pack and exorbitant airline carry-on/checked baggage fees, packing lightly is often crucial.¬†

I also occasionally post vegan recipes and updates on the various coding projects I am working on. Please feel free to browse around, and if you find my content interesting or useful please sign up for my newsletter!
