Welcome to Laura Ann Ewing. I am so glad you are here! In case you did not gather, my name is Laura, and this is my little corner of the internet. What started as a travel blog under the name “There Goes Laura” in 2017 has changed and grown into something different and equally special over the last two years.

So who am I, and how did I get here?

My social media bios would all read “Traveler | Blogger | Follower of Christ | Lover of all people & places | I’m here to find adventure & joy while bringing you along on the journey.”

And that basically sums it up. But we’re all so much more than our Twitter bio, right? At least I hope so.

I’m a 30-something year old, who works a full-time office job and is in the final stretch of getting her Bachelor of Science in Marketing Management degree. I put a lot of hours in at the office, and at home, and have learned how to manage my time off (weekends, holidays, etc.) to see as much of the world as I can, in what little time I have.

Speaking of the world, I am in love with it. The people, places, architecture, landscapes, animals, history, cultures, food, and everything in between. This world is an incredible place. And because of my love of the world, I have a love for travel.

Actually, can I have a minute to confess something here? I am a travel addict and the road to recovery is no where in sight.

I am either traveling, reading about travel, writing about travel, planning a trip, planning someone else’s trip, watching travel vlogs, daydreaming about travel, or being distressed because I am not traveling.

I also love writing, photography, history, and architecture. And the most important thing of all, I love God. This world He created is a beautiful place, and I want to showcase that while sharing of His love, telling of His grace, and maybe finding an adventure or two along the way.

So, who am I really? I’m just a girl who thinks laughter really is the best medicine. I don’t like Nutella, London is my favorite city, I hate summer and love winter, being an aunt is my favorite thing in the world, I have generalized anxiety disorder, New Orleans is like my second home, silence and kindness and forgiveness go a lot further than we will ever know, I live alone and when I’m not traveling I am a homebody, I am 100% an introvert, I do not know my Enneagram number and I don’t care to find out, reading is better than television, I have a miniature dachshund who is perfect, I am the furthest thing from a morning person but I also could go to sleep at 8 am every night, I think tea is better than coffee, I lay out my work clothes two weeks at a time, I live in a tiny studio apartment and love it, mindfulness and minimalism changed my life, and I am really not cool at all, no matter how hard I try to be.

So, if anything above didn’t scare you off or make you think I’ve lost my mind, then it must be meant to be. Stick around, sign up for my email list and join the fun (I won’t spam you, pinky promise!) and follow me on social media to know what is happening on the blog and in my every day life.

Whoever you are, whatever you do, wherever you’re from, I really am so glad you are here, because the adventure is just beginning.

XO, Laura
