Ali is my name. I’m a 28-year-old Travel and Wellness content creator from Dublin, Ireland.
My background is in cardiology. I previously worked in hospitals performing diagnostic tests on patients with heart issues. Although I loved this job and loved helping people, I’ve always been obsessed with visiting new countries and experiencing new cultures.
So, in December 2021, I swapped my hospital scrubs for a digital nomad life and have since travelled to 6 new countries, bringing my total number of countries that I’ve visited 41!
I started sharing FREE travel guides and budget-friendly tips on my Instagram and have gotten such lovely feedback that I’ve decided to start this website so that I can provide even more detailed guides and tips for travelling!
Aside from travelling, I’m obsessed with wellness, positive mental health and self-care. Yoga, meditation and mindfulness are all in my daily routine and I feel so passionate about self-care and a positive mindset.
Having lost my Dad to suicide 9 years ago, mental health is extremely close to my heart. I understand the importance of prioritizing doing the things that you love in life before it’s too late. Those things for me are travelling, yoga, hiking, and surrounding myself with people that I love.
Not to sound cliche, but life really is too short to be anything but happy.
My goal for my Instagram and this blog is and never will be to be an ‘influencer’ (if you know me personally you’ll know my whole body cringes when that word is used in certain ways 😂). My goal will never be to make money either (I will try as much as I can to share all my tips for free, although the guides I create are extremely time-consuming so no hate if I do decide to start charging a small fee for them 😂).
I started this page when I was in a dark place mentally as a way to keep myself accountable for prioritizing my happiness. My goal for these platforms has always been and will always be to inspire you to live your best life and help people in any way that I can.
I want to show you that stepping out of your comfort zone and traveling or doing what you love is possible and will always be more worth it than you think.
In the summer of 2022, I launched my own business where I work as a Virtual Assistant and Social Media Manager for wellness coaches. Having my own business has its own challenges but the pros outweigh the cons, the main pro being that I can work from literally anywhere in the world once I have decent wifi.
I also love exploring where I’m from which is Ireland. Ireland has so much to offer and my mission for this summer is to showcase to you all how amazing it is! I recently began organizing social hikes in Ireland where I get a group of like-minded people together to hike outdoors and enjoy our stunning country! If you’d like to join the group, just send me a direct message on Instagram!
I’ve so many trips and ideas plans and I can’t wait to share them with you.
As always, my DMs are open if you have any questions or need help planning your trip.
