Hi there, I'm Vivien! Some of you may know me as Violets for Vivien (my former blog), and if you've followed me to my new little space on the web, thank you!

I started my previous blog with no clear vision, but as I began to write more and more, it slowly unraveled my true passion: travel writing. And ultimately, it led to the creation of Girl on the Plane.

In 2015, I studied abroad in Florence, Italy for the summer, and it sparked a wanderlust in me that I didn’t even realize existed. Since then, I’ve been fortunate enough to have traveled to 17 countries (and counting), leaving a part of my heart wherever I go. I love how traveling opens a door to all the beautiful things the world has to offer…I travel to discover new cultures; to discover myself; to indulge in the local cuisine; to see life from a different perspective. I travel to live.

At the end of the day - and as clichéd as it sounds - I want to inspire you to travel. I want you to know that there is a whole world out there full of wondrous places and people with different backgrounds, beliefs, cultures, and stories of their own. The world has so much offer, you just have to be willing to take it. Life's too short to stay in one place forever. And wherever you go in the world, I hope you'll feel at home.

Recently, I made a move to Washington D.C. So when I'm not wandering off in to the world, I learning my way around my new city.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you'll stay for a while!
