I created Traveling Tessie in 2019 as a place where I can share my love of travel as well as provide tips on how I’m able to balance my travel bug while having a full time job. I was born & raised in Texas, moved to NYC for 9 years, have been soaking up the sun in Southwest Florida for the past two years and am about to start a new journey exploring the Pacific Northwest in Seattle!
Visiting new places has always peaked my interest from a very young age and foreign countries are my specialty. I love learning the history of other places & the stories they tell. Most of my wanderlust ideas are centered around food, culture, and landscape, but I also love a good, unexpected travel deal.
