About

When Elizabeth was growing up in central Florida, she dreamed of seeing the world and finding her people. She jokingly titled herself World Class Adventurer while playing on the railroad tracks near her house with a friend.

After living in more than 25 cities in North America and East Asia, she created this blog as an online travel diary. Eventually, she experimented with different types of articles and reached out to other Western women of color living in Asia.

As of 2019, the blog has grown into much more than simple travel musings. Plenty of blogs in the genre take an overly-sanitized approach to storytelling. We’re here to show you the grit, the struggle, the beauty, the pain, the ugliness, and the core of humanity buried deep inside every human on planet Earth.

It doesn’t matter where you come from. You can be a World Class Adventurer, too.

“People have only as much liberty as they have the intelligence to want and the courage to take.”

― Emma Goldman

“Basically, if you’re not a utopianist, you’re a schmuck.”

Let’s build something together.
