“Tourists don’t know where they’ve been, travelers don’t know where they’re going” — Paul Theroux


Hello, there! My name is Aryn. Ever since I was little I loved learning about other cultures and languages. Sophomore year of college I decided to study abroad in France and traveled around Europe. From that experience I became hooked and after a summer internship in China I knew for sure that traveling was my passion. So, I started to write.

Driftwood  & Daydreams was created to collect my travel stories and photography.  Upon graduating from college I set out with dreams of traveling the world only to look at my bank account and realize that such a goal wasn't feasible. Instead I now write to catalog my life as a post-college, 20-something, who's passionate about their dreams and just trying to make things work. C'est la vie, non?
