Your Host

Hey there I’m Poppy and I make travel content highlighting people and cultures from around the world. Born in sunny San Diego, California to a mom from Nebraska and a dad from Romania. Three years ago when I graduated from university, I decided to start traveling the world and I just haven’t stopped. So if you’d like to join me on my journey and have a passion for people and different cultures then travel with me to beautiful Bali! Bali holds a special place in my heart as I lived with the most amazing Balinese family for about 5 months, so I can’t wait to show you guys the local way to visit Indonesia!
