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...

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...

Berlin: a rough, honest, take-no-shit kind of city. It's nothing like the rest of Germany - not even a little bit. Gone is the picturesque order of Bavaria. In its place: graffiti, slung up on seemingly every flat surface and building, no matter what neighborhood you'r...

Amsterdam is a gorgeous wonderland of scenic canals, beautiful architecture, and rich history. Of course, there's no ignoring its international reputation for its party culture and “anything goes” mentality, but, underneath the surface, there is so much to see, do, and...

Booking an Airbnb might seem simple and easy - and it definitely can be, but if you’re on a tight budget OR want a place that meets specific requirements and needs, you have to dig deep, use the right filters, and really take your time sorting through the options.

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.
