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...

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.
