Goal: To touch all the cats of the world.

Mission: To inspire others to see the world for themselves. There is enough on this Earth alone to entertain you for the rest of your life. I share the good and the bad in my travels, because although social media generally presents the beautiful side of things, I also want to share the raw and grittiness of real life.

What I believe in: Travel is not a luxury just for the wealthy. The world is my classroom. I seek exposure and diversity of cultures from all over the world.

Background: My name is Evangeline Chen, and I live to travel. Although I was born in Taiwan, I was raised both in Singapore and Los Angeles. I graduated in June 2013 from the University of California in San Diego with a Bachelor’s Degree, majoring in Political Science with an emphasis in International Relations and European History. I have a fascination for German History, so I ended up studying abroad in Germany for a year. Doing absolutely nothing with my degree, I eventually developed a passion in traveling during my time at the university. I have traveled all over Europe, North America, Australia and East/Southeast Asia, and am looking forward to explore more of the world.

When I’m not traveling, I enjoy painting, reading, writing, and going to concerts.

Wildest life changing experience: Living out of a carry-on suitcase and couchsurfing through 10 countries in Europe by myself for 9 weeks (Summer 2011).
