Hey what’s up!!! Who knew I had an “About Me” page just chillin there unoccupied..
Well.. my name is Storme.. yes that is my real name.. and I’m just another traveling blogger, making my way around the world, and writing about it as I go unless the wind blows me into a natural disaster, or opportunity to be of service! I guess this would be a good place to answer a couple of questions that I commonly get asked..
Where do I live? – Well, I have a house in a town called Pass Christian, Mississippi USA, that’s where I go when I am taking a vacation from traveling 😉 It’s an amazing little town on the gulf coast, full of galleries, fishing boats, and friendly people! I love it there! Exploring my town is what sparked my love for exploring.. I totally suggest you check it out on your travels, and hit me up on couchsurfing if you need a place to crash! I also live in Galveston Texas. Let’s face it, what true gypsy answers that with one location?
How do I afford to travel so much? – Rude much? lol joking .. it’s really a combination of things. My goal is always to travel and completely experience a new place for under $200 a week.. flights and everything.. that’s why my blog is focused on frugal traveling. $200 a week is actually less than it costs me to stay home, so I’m actually saving money by traveling! To find out more about that, search “frugal” and it’ll bring up all the examples of that that I’ve written so far.
To earn my $200 a week I sell prints of my photography and artwork on Upcycle Artist although I’m currently working on an online store right here! I also sell prints of my paintings, and once in a while, if I really need to, I sell an original. I’ve put my house on Airbnb to generate some more funds, and cover the expenses of my home. I write this blog and hope to become known enough to generate a decent income from the ads. When I am stationary at home I’ve recently fallen in love with upcycling furniture for resale.
What do I miss having while living out of a backpack?
That was a good question … My friends.. while facetime has made it possible to still see their faces, and feel like I am connected to home.. it’s not the same as being there. I miss my extensive art supplies.. being able to put off until tomorrow what I can do today.. being on the road, each place has a limit of a week to see everything, so it’s a constant non stop go go go… I miss having more than 3 sets of clothes.. and my sneakers! I only have hiking boots.. I miss my Rufus.. he was the most amazing cat in the world, but passed away before I hit the road.. but I do miss being able to have a companion.. Crawfish! lol
How would I describe myself?
Blahhh… I’m never good at this one .. to write that would be to limit myself, and I am truly limitless.. I am sure if you read my blog tho, you’ll begin to get a sense of who I am!
