HEY THERE, I'M KIM.
Anthropology grad, Lush addict, vegetarian foodie, sustainability advocate and of course, traveler! For as long as I can remember I've been totally obsessed with learning about different cultures.
I played with an interactive LeapFrog globe throughout my entire childhood, I'd cook foods from all around the world with my grandma and I insisted to my third grade teacher that he let me pick my own country (I really wanted Egypt) for a school project we were supposed to pick out of a hat.
And so cue my travel blog - The Wholesome Tourist.
It's only fitting, don't you think?
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT HERE?
The Wholesome Tourist a collection of practical guides that will help you not only navigate new places but encourage you to live a more minimal, sustainable and free-spirited lifestyle.
So far my travels have taken me to over twenty different countries so if you're looking for country-specific blog posts you'll find them under the "Destinations" tab. But now, for the foreseeable future, Ryan and I will be traveling across the United States living the #roadlife. So if you're curious about planning for and living that sort of lifestyle, check out those blog posts here.
