about itchy feet travel

Itchy Feet Travel was created in September 2015. It was created by a girl in love with travelling the world, experiencing new adventures, eating different foods, and meeting new people. I decided to start this blog to share my adventures, experiences, and advice with others. I do this in the hope of inspiring others to travel, live life to the fullest and follow their dreams.

Get out of your comfort zone and try something new!

When I started this blog I didn’t have the first clue about how to create a blog! There was a steep learning curve at first, with so many new things to learn, but I kept chipping away at it. Through trial and error, I was able to learn a lot and fulfil my dream of starting my own travel blog!

About Itchy Feet Travel

So welcome fellow travel lovers! Welcome to my blog. This blog is not only about travelling but also about being an expat, studying abroad, working abroad, living abroad, solo travel, and budget travel.

The Name

Choosing the name for your blog is one of the most difficult and important things you will do! I chose Itchy Feet because it expresses how my feet feel when they’ve been in the same place for too long – they start itching for their next adventure! Itchy feet is defined as a very strong or irresistible impulse to travel.

I’m guessing you know the feeling!

The Girl Behind the Blog

I have a serious case of itchy feet and incurable wanderlust! Originally from Canada, I went on my first international trip at the age of fifteen to Paris France. Since then, my passion for travel and adventure has continued to grow. I have currently been to over thirty countries and lived in Canada, Austria, Italy, and Australia. Besides travelling, another passion of mine is marketing. I have a master’s and a bachelor degree in marketing. I currently work as a full-time marketing specialist and part-time freelance marketing coordinator and consultant.
