Hello and welcome to my world of adventure!
I’m Christina, a complete and utter world addict. I love traveling, but more importantly I am passionate about learning about places, discovering the unknown, and questioning everything.
From a young age, I’ve always been a thrill-seeker. My travel obsession began as a young child when I would accompany my parents on volunteer missions to Mexico. Seeing a different way of life taught me that my middle-class suburban upbringing in SoCal wasn’t the center of the universe. I guess you could say that my inner musings and obsessive contemplation of the Universe is the perfect habitat to foster creative writing, hence the fruition of Chasing Christina!
In the summer of 2016 I studied abroad in Italy and started blogging as an avenue to share my adventures with friends and family. What blossomed from my infatuating journey was a torturous state of wanderlust that cannot be satiated. So, I just keep writing and planning trips!
I am fueled by the rush of being in an unfamiliar place. I have a passion for adventure and learning about different cultures and ways of life. I hope that this blog cultivates traveling and inspires others to pursue their dreams of exploration and attain what most people shun as unattainable or unrealistic. In this fast-paced, full-time, 9-5 world filled with “no” and “shouldn’t,” I want to show you that yes, you should!
Needless to say… I’m going places, can you keep up?
