Hi.

I'm Sophia! Follow me through all my adventures around the world. 

Hope you have an inspired stay!

Oh Hello There! Long Time No See!

Oh Hello There! Long Time No See!

Once again, hello there... it really has been a long time! My apologies for being so MIA. The last time I wrote on my blog was back in 2013, four years ago, and so much has happened since then.

I traveled to over 50 countries and hundreds of cities, moved to China as an expat with my previous company, lived in China, quit that company, traveled for 1.5 years straight, traversed the Silk Road from Asia to Europe solo, volunteered in Uganda, trekked with endangered mountain gorillas, swam and dove with sharks of all kinds, learned French, rode hot air balloons, snowboarded the French Alps, hiked the Inca Trail and within Patagonia... but most importantly, learned more about myself by connecting with others on a deeper level, past the surface. 

I know that I cannot make up loss time or write blogs that follow my journeys in chronological order, but I hope to share with you the reflections and stories, both good or bad, I have gained through my travels. Traveling is not about checking things off a bucket list, but about the stories and experiences made with people all over the world - understanding that we, as one race, are humans and are much more similar than we think. Kindness and love is a universal language that is spoken and can be understood by all of us.  I hope that my stories will empower you all to be positive, to face your fears, to love yourself and others, and to explore places unknown, around the world and deep within yourselves. 

My blog and site are still under construction, so please forgive the mess and be patient with the content (it'll come, I promise). Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions or just want to say "Hi!" I would love to hear from you and connect!
