Hi! I’m Rachel, the author and creator of The Travel Epoch. After studying languages in college, my love for culture and the arts inspired me to move to Spain, where I lived on a small island called Mallorca for two years. Although I’m back in my home city of Houston, traveling still replenishes my soul and gives me the energy I need to take on everything that comes with the ups and downs of daily life.

We’ll get along just fine if you also:

  • Like to immerse in other cultures
  • Want to explore places like a local
  • Find value in growing outside of your comfort zone
  • Daydream of escaping the monotony of daily life and experiencing a different world

My hope is to inspire you to travel authentically by offering advice from my personal experiences on the road, void of superficial posts about the best Instagram locations and filled instead with how to explore the depths of a destination and within yourself. You’ll find hints of nostalgia along the way with nearly all of my photos from my analog film camera. With all that said, thank you for stopping by and let’s take on this journey called life together!
