Hello! I’m Amy and welcome to Just You, Me, & the World!
A little bit about myself:
I am 24 years old and currently living just outside of Boston, MA. I am originally from upstate New York and lived until I transferred to Bentley University in 2012. After finishing college in 2014, I decided to permanently move to Boston.
I often travel with my sister Mallory (who often edits my posts and provides me with incredible pictures) and my fiancé Dan.
I am often asked what I am good at, what I like to do, what I am passionate about, and the answer to those questions are always TRAVEL.
I plan most my trips start to finish on my own. I start with a budget and find flights followed by accommodations, car rentals, activities, and everything else in-between. I find the process invigorating and it allows me to have a moment with the person I love most. I often find that in my daily life that I do not live in the moment but when I plan a trip, I have to do just that. It is truly what I live and breathe for.
Planning has always come naturally to me; I love planning parties, fundraisers, concerts, special events, and anything related to travel. I love the structure and the ability to make something exactly what you want it to be, which is good because I am currently in the process of planning my own wedding! I have learned that you always have to leave room for flexibility, changes, and the uncertainties, but that is part of life!
I started this blog as a continuance of a study abroad blog I started while in Copenhagen Denmark. I loved telling people about my adventures in an unknown country because people could live through me and I could help someone come up with ideas for their trips. As I have gotten older, I have learned that money cannot buy happiness, but it can buy a ticket to anywhere where you will find happiness in all the things you learn and experience.
If you ever find you have some questions or would like help planning your next trip, please contact me here.
