You know that feeling you get on Christmas night, when your heart is so full and your body is buzzing with excitement for what tomorrow holds? That’s how the thought of my next trip makes me feel everyday.


About me

I am a first generation American, solo-traveler, french-speaker, and all-around overachiever. I come from a long line of Belgians, and am the only Bastings born in America. Travel runs in my veins, from my parents who moved here with broken english in their 20s, to my brother who can be found piloting a plane on any given day.

Follow me as I share my experiences from my past, current, and future travels to over 30 countries. From my constant struggles to figure out public transport, to my ability to pack only a backpack for two months of travel, I’ll share my tips, tricks, and excessive number of travel stories.
