Hi I’m Carissa, and I am the face behind Start Wandering. Although I was a late bloomer to travelling the world, first backpacking at the ripe age of 20, I returned home and worked hard to keep adding travel to my years. Now, 4 years later, and 7 years into my career I decided to combine my passion for wandering the world and spreading stories of triumph and adventure, and created my travel inspired blog to promote others to also Start Wandering. I have packed up, sold everything and quit my job to wander the globe one town at a time. I am joined by my husband, the residents of each town I visit, and all of you. All you have to do is Start Wandering.
