I had barely stepped foot in Wellington last August when I started to hear rumors about Toast Martinborough, New Zealand’s biggest food and wine festival. Pretty much every local I met raved about it, convincing me I had to experience it for myself this year. When that many people speak positively about something, you listen. [...]

What if I were to tell you a place existed both untouched by time or tourists? In Italy, nonetheless. What if I were to tell you I’ve discovered the most curious, unique and hauntingly beautiful city in Italy? What if I were to tell you it is one of the oldest continuously inhabited places in [...]
If there was ever a country perfectly suited for a road trip, it’s Iceland. Majestic lava fields mingle with snow-capped mountains to create a world that will constantly leave you wondering, “is this real life? How can such a place exist?” Existential questions aside, if doing an unforgettable road trip tops your travel bucketlist, head [...]
I’m going to go out on a limb here and make a bold statement; every inch of Greece is beautiful – and not just your regular run of the mill beautiful, I’m talking jaw-droppingly, wow-inducing, mind-blowingly beautiful. How many other countries can say that? Of my two weeks in Greece this summer, I was not [...]
Once upon a time there was a monastery nestled among the jurassic green hills of southern Iceland. Nearby was the impressive Mýrdalsjökull Glacier (try saying that five times fast), a mountain of ice looming over the south coast of this unforgiving land. Run by a friendly abbot, the monastery thrived with villagers and locals coming to [...]
Everyone dreams about Tuscany, right? Or is it just me? While I’ve spent a lot of time traveling around Italy over the years, I always put off visiting Tuscany. Once I even canceled a trip there. Why? Because for me, and what I suspect for a lot of you, Tuscany represents the ultimate Italian experience. [...]
When I jumped feet first into the big, bad scary world of travel blogging a year ago, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Though I had been internet writing for over two years, I had interacted very little with what I soon would discover is a whole ‘nother universe of people [...]
At the risk of sounding like a massive tool, I am going to start off this post with one of my favorite quotes about Italy, you know, because there are so many to chose from. “A man who has not been in Italy, is always conscious of an inferiority, from his not having seen what [...]
When I was growing up, I was quite a feral child. Running around from one imaginary adventure to another in the otherworldly forest that was my backyard, I always had to be dragged inside for dinner with twigs in my hair and mud on my knees. And let’s not even talk about bath time. Spending [...]
Greetings from New Zealand! It has now been 10 days since I bid farewell to America – the land of Starbucks and burgers – and journeyed halfway round the world to New Zealand, where they also have Starbucks and burgers. Maybe this transition won’t be so hard after all. For any newcomers here who have [...]
What do you think of when you think of Iceland? Icy glaciers? Northern Lights? Vikings and volcanoes? More waterfalls than you can shake a stick at? Or if you’re me, then Game of Thrones. Come on, don’t be shy. Although certainly emblematic of Iceland today, especially in travel blogs, there is so much more to [...]
No matter how many times I travel to Italy, it continues to surprise me. Before people (Americans) travel to Italy, I feel like they have a very limited idea of what’s in store for them. Pizza, pasta, tall, dark and handsome Italian men in Armani riding vespas around leaning towers and Roman forums. You get [...]
Who is Young Adventuress?
Hi, I'm Liz, and I got my first taste for traveling and Spain when I was 16 years old.

I've been living in Spain for the past few years but now I am about to embark on a new journey across the globe. Follow my adventures as I wander, eat, and photograph my way around the world
