First time GoPro owner?  Congrats! You’ve got a cool, versatile, and dependable camera - but it’s all SO confusing.  How do I get photos off of it? What are the most essential accessories? Which SIM card do I get?  I’ll be traveling and using it - which accessories are...

If you’ve ever wondered what camera I use to take my photos, how I stay organized, or how I’ve gotten by traveling the world for a year (non-stop) – everything you’re looking for is on this page to get you started!

All of the items in this article are exactly the same o...

This article was written in 2018. African transport options can change “at the drop of a hat” (aka quickly and without warning), so no matter what option you pick - always make sure to look at the most up to date reviews on TripAdvisor before taking my word for it.  So...

We did a two week trip through Morocco during our around-the-world adventure. It was our first stop in Africa and a welcome change in culture and surroundings after three months in Europe.

Having said that - it was a bigger culture shock than many casual travelers mig...

Do you have a traveler in your life (or maybe it's you..)?  Someone who has a bucket list that’s as thick as a book or dreams as big as the sky (it's cheesy, but that's how it feels)?  

If the answer is "yes," then this article is for you, because I've listed out...

Belize has become an increasingly popular travel destination in recent years, especially among Americans and Europeans looking to stretch their dollar, euro, or kroner. In fact, according to their Wikipedia Page, the small country now welcomes around 1 million visitors...

I, like many women, spent a large part of my life romanticizing and dreaming of visiting Paris. “City of Light,” “City of Love” - what location could possibly be more likely to live up to its incredible reputation than the second most-visited city on Earth? How could...

Despite the seemingly audacious article title, I can assure you that this particular sentiment is not a new one – especially among the French. Paris, as one of the most visited cities in the world, has long been the subject of debate, most of which centers on the dumbi...

At a mere 2,500 sq kilometers, the country of Luxembourg could easily fit into the county of Dorset (for those of you in the UK) or the state of Rhode Island (for those of you in the US). And despite being conveniently located at the intersection of Belgium, Germany, a...

Meet Mars

Mars here! Thanks for stopping by my page!  I pride myself on cat eye eyeliner, using my GoPro and selfie stick, and having an incredible drive to never stop until I see it all!

I've been traveling since I was 19 and so far I've seen 35 countries on 5 continents...and the list is growing!

My most recent achievement was circling the earth on a one-year, self-funded (I saved over $15k in one year) backpacking trip in 2018/19. 

 

My next big endeavors are an international move (follow me on IG for deets!), traveling the UK, and working my way north to south through South America and ending in Antarctica.

I try my best to keep it real, always. Do me a solid and return the favor by keeping connected and following my accounts!  I'm most active on Instagram (I have two: mars.meets.world & mars.eats.world), but you can find all my social media handles and channels at the top left of this page! Chat soon.
