I’m Bekah, a budget traveler, long distance hiker, and passionate environmentalist from Indianapolis, IN, USA. In many ways, I’m a misfit never knowing what I wanted to be when I grew up, always knowing I wanted to see the world and experience as much of the great outdoors as possible. One day I knew it was time for more than dreaming and time for doing. I decided to take a leap of faith into unknown territory and figure out how to see the world without spending a fortune of money that I didn’t have. I collected my pennies and hit the web to create a plan.

Since July 2014, I have visited 13 countries, 45 States, and hiked over 9,000 miles on foot including the Triple Crown of Hiking  {Appalachian Trail, Pacific Crest Trail, and Continental Divide Trail} as well as the Colorado Trail and Arizona Trail. My husband, Sean, and I just finished our summer in Alaska as bicycle tour guides and are about to begin our first bike tour down the west coast.

The past five years have been an incredible blessing and have opened my eyes to the beauty of this world. In these experiences, I’ve become hyper aware of the importance of protecting and preserving this, our only, planet and its resources. In traveling and at home, we do whatever is in our power to minimize our impact, promote environmental awareness, and educate others to the same end. Join us in taking environmental protection into your own hands.

Somehow, I found a way to start seeing the world on a budget, and it truly changed my life. I consider these experiences to be my greatest teacher and encourage others on a travel path of their own. Follow the blog here, on Facebook, or on Instagram for the adventure of a lifetime.

The world is yours – go see it.
