Hi –

Thanks for stopping by! Make it a habit and we’ll become friends 😉

My name is Brittanie and I’m on a perpetual search for affordable adventure. I live for planning trips and exploring anywhere new! With an abundance of savvy tricks of the trade, a job that pays the bills #workhardplayharder, and a tribe of amazing people willing to jump on a plane at the drop of a hat, I think I’ve figured out how to make travel happen. For me, that is, and I hope to help you do the same!

To put it lightly, I have a chronic case of the travel-bug. Living out of my suitcase has always felt a bit more like home than any address that was ever printed on my license. When I began to travel at such a young age, with not a whole lot in my bank account, one question I could never seem to get away from was “How do you do it?”

LemonBubbly is my way of answering that, as I realize a lot of us are a little strapped for cash but deserve to have the unparalleled wealth of experience that travel and real life moments bring. I have been fortunate enough to have seen some of our world’s most beautiful places and have felt first hand the impact of how those once-in-a-lifetime experiences enriched my life.

Ultimately, I realize I have a knack for this kind of stuff and I’m passionate about getting each person I come into contact with to realize their potential. At the very least, to expand their worldview in terms of what’s possible rather than living inside a small box just because that’s all they’ve ever known. Trust me, it’s possible! We live on a big, beautiful planet and we should explore it while we are able to appreciate it fully.

Here I share my itineraries, my tips, my photos and my experiences in effort to help you realize your potential and your passion. Everyone’s life is entirely theirs to own.  I encourage you to not let yours pass you by.  

It’s my hope that LemonBubbly becomes a place of mutual motivation where we hold each other accountable to go after what we want; a community of friends that encourages one another to forge paths, overcome fears, and find what a beautiful life means uniquely to you!

LemonBubbly is out to prove that it is possible to be young, broke, and struggling – yet still enjoy all the wonders of this Earth and everything it has to share.

Now, let’s get going! Shall we?
