The art of saying "Yes!" can take you far away. Many people pass on opportunities for many reasons, one of them being fear. Through my life I've encounter many people that forget to live the present for something that might not even happen in the future. If you are constantly waiting for the right time to finally do something, like fulfill your life dream, you are going to spend most of your life waiting.
My name is Mariella and I created this blog as a source of inspiration for others to believe they can live the life they always pictured. The secret? Believe you can and take action. The world awaits!
The earliest memory I have of traveling is from when I was 6 years old. My parents took my siblings and I to Santiago de Queretaro in my native country of Mexico. I remember being overcome with an intense mix of uneasy and excited emotions as we arrived. It is as if my mind was trying to comprehend all the new things it was seeing. 3 years later my family moved to Miami from Mexico and that same feeling returned my father drove through the city to our new home. When going somewhere new, I still experience this same blend of emotions as I exit the front door of the airport. This beautiful, yet frightening feeling is part of what motivates me to visit new places. I want to conquer the nervousness and revel in the excitement.
My name is Sari Libbin and I have been traveling around the world since the age of one. By the time I was 21 years old, I had been to all 7 continents. My parents always said that traveling was an important part of becoming a well-rounded person and having a profound outlook on life. Traveling has become part of who I am. It stimulates all my senses & gives me opportunity, motivation, friendship & lasting memories. Now at 26, I am embarking on my 38th country and counting! I hope that my travel posts provide you with some knowledge, advice, entertainment and laughs on Libbin la vida of travel!
My name is Andrea Almeyda I am a student at Parsons the New School for Design which is the reason I live in New York City. I have been traveling since I'm very young but became passionate about traveling at the age of 15 when I decided to go to Dubai and fell in love with discovering new cultures and places that have now shaped me to who I am. I was born and bread in Guayaquil, Ecuador where my curiosity and passion for the unknown was developed, leading me to move abroad at the age of 18. Now at the age of 20, I have traveled to 18 countries (and counting) hoping to one day have the whole world crossed out of my bucket list. Hopefully that's a journey we will live together.

25 years young, 26 countries. I travel in search of breathtaking nature, adventure, trekking and swimming in new seas. I love the coast, island hopping, paradise dreaming and seeing my toes through crystal clear waters. I don’t like cities very much, nor crowded places full of people. I don’t even like people that much [kind of kidding].
I feel my fuel for travelling has always been that jaw dropping moment when you see yourself surrounded by something that can only be created by the immense power of nature. To the day I haven’t felt anything even close to that by any man made attraction. My moto is ‘Vivir es Incredible’, which translates to Living is amazing.
In my free time I’m an architect btw!
My name is Jackie. I am a marketer by day and aspiring writer by night who fills the space in between with an array of interests, the most important being travel. I have conquered 24 countries (the same as my age) and counting. I consider the best parts of travel to be the food and the people, in that order, which has led to my motto “Eat well. Travel often.” I find travel to be one of the most enriching experiences in life and believe it helps us grow as individuals and open our minds to new perspectives.
I am currently working on a goal to visit 5 continents in 2017. When not traveling, I can be found in Miami pondering the meaning of life, grumbling about the Cowboys faltering in the playoffs or planning my next escape from the magic city. Stay tuned for my journey!
