About Me

Hey there!

Do you love to travel? How about going on adventures?

If so, you’ve come to the right place.

My Beautiful Passport aims to inspire you to chase your own travel dreams. I believe that everyone should be able to see and experience the beauty this world has to offer and that there is beauty everywhere.

Here you will find destination itineraries, travel tips, my travel experiences, travel saving ideas, and more, all of which will assist you with planning your adventures and help you learn from my misadventures.

Now, a little more about the girl behind My Beautiful Passport.

I’m Melissa and welcome to My Beautiful Passport.

I’m a Canada YYZ based traveler with non-stop wanderlust. While I’m currently working a full-time 9-5, I aspire towards transitioning into full-time travel. In the meantime, I travel at every opportunity that arises and document my journey along the way.

Since 2014, travel has been my passion and has lead me to explore 15+ countries across 3 different continents, and I continue to add more countries to that list at every opportunity.

Why I Travel

Life is too short to wait until retirement to travel. I love trying new things and new cultures and sharing my experiences with others, including sharing them with you, and I don’t want to wait to do it until I’m older. I love to collect memories, and my loves of photography and travel are my favourite ways to do so.

My Travel Style

A mix of adventure and affordable luxury. From scuba diving in the Philippines to swimming in a rooftop pool in Panama, I like to switch it up, and just have fun on my travels. I hope you will enjoy my travel style and take an adventure of your own

A few of my favourite things:

  • Travel quote – “We travel not to escape life but for life not to escape us” – Robyn Yong
  • Country I’ve visited – Japan! And I really wanna go back!
  • Foods to eat abroad – Pizza and ice cream/gelato – Yum!
  • Travel experience – being sung happy birthday to, by a group of strangers after they found out it was my birthday, on the top of a volcano

I look forward to having you here on My Beautiful Passport to gain all my tips and tricks when it comes to traveling.

Now that you are here, let’s stay connected. Follow along to stay in touch.

So happy you are here!

Sincerely, Melissa
