Hey! I’m Gabby, an early 20-something with a passion for new adventures, new cultures, new friends, and new cocktails.
Two weeks after I graduated high school at 17-years-old I took my first solo trip and flew to Iceland for two weeks. This leap of faith introduced me to the culture of solo female travel, gave me new ideas of who I could be and what I could do in college, and ultimately led to a love of travel and adventure I never could have imagined but now can’t live without.
While in college I visited 11 countries. 6 completely on my own dime, 2 solo. Having graduated last year I’m still finding my time to travel—both locally and internationally—amidst my 9-5 engineering job.
What does “Packs Light” mean?
I chose the blog name Packs Light with a couple meanings in mind. It’s the lead to a few mantras I give myself to
1. She packs light, mentally and physically—she does bring the baggage of the past into the future, and does not place excessive value on material possessions.
Aside from being Team #CarryOnOnly for virtually all of my trips, this reminds me to always look toward opportunities in the future instead of what-ifs of the past.
2. She packs light—she brings with her inspiration, positivity, and empowerment in every aspect of her life, and hopes to spread this light to others.
This the goal of my blog, my message, my life. I want to bring knowledge to people and empower them to do something about it. I always want my blog to have a message of positivity and light.
