About Me

Hello, and welcome to my slice of paradise 

My name is Nicole Sunderland – I am 38 years old, Irish & Scottish, bacon lover, whiskey drinker and Netflix Marathoner… and I have an incurable wanderlust. After studying criminology and law, I went on to get my MBA because I love business. I run my blog and social media channels full-time as well as travel full-time. Most of my travels are solo – but on occasion I travel with people.

From a young age I was fiercely passionate about seeing the world and meeting people from all walks of life. At the ripe age of 18 I started taking seasonal jobs around the United States and traveling to 48 of the 50 states. Fast forward to today – I have been to ALL 50 of the states!

A mostly solo traveler focusing on Luxury travel, food and photography for the last 10-11 years of my life in my travels. I love experiencing the best hotels in the world in different destinations while eating the local flare. I like to share my experiences traveling and eating around the globe on my social media channels and here on my blog as a way to inspire you to travel more. If you want to work together you can find more information –> here.

I have been fortunate to travel around the globe visiting 5 continents, 44 countries, 50 US states, 13 cruises, and countless airlines. I could retire today from traveling and still have enough to write about for the rest of my life. But I won’t because I have barely touched the surface and I want to continue showing people the world through my lens and inspiring them through vivid imagery to travel themselves. While my bucket list is extensive, I continue to add to it all the time. 

If we happen to cross paths, say hello! I love meeting new people – that is what this entire journey is about. – Nicki
