Welcome to Beyond the Passport! My name is Maria, and travel is my passion. Not only going to a new city or country to experience the culture, but all the details that go into any trip, like the best way to get there, what to pack, where to stay, and what to see. Whether you are planning a luxury weekend away six months in advance, or got a last minute urge to quit your job and travel around the globe on a tight budget, there are what I like to call “travel truths” that can help you have the best experience no matter where you are heading for how long and what budget you have.
I’ve created this site to not only share my stories of the amazing places I’ve been so lucky to visit and experience, but to share all the tips and tricks I’ve learned along the way, as well as try to share my favorite things like restaurants I’ve stumbled upon, and gear that I don’t leave home without. I’d always love to hear from you, the readers, on places you’ve been and tips you find helpful when heading out for your next adventure.
I hope you enjoy this journey as much as I do and I hope it not only helps you along your way, but inspires you to travel more, leave your comfort zone and explore this amazing world we get to call home! Anyone can travel, just get that passport and I’ll help with everything beyond that.
