If you’re passionate about traveling and need someone to give you useful tips for your next trip, Leah of Gringa Journeys is just the person you’re looking for. She’s devoted to sharing her passion for traveling with the world and she’s hoping that her stories will inspire others to hit the road.
Leah fell in love with exploring new places after moving to Santiago, Chile, where she lived for about two years. After pursuing a B.A. in Spanish and an M.A. in Interpreting and Translation, Santiago proved to be the perfect place to hone her speaking skills.
A family tragedy got in the way of her adventures, and she moved back to Atlanta, GA after her father was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Her passion for travel didn’t fade away once she moved back home, and she decided to become a travel content creator full-time.
Leah’s Instagram page is now followed by over 85,000 people, and she opted for the name “gringa” journeys because this Spanish word describes someone who’s a foreigner.
“Personally, I love when Spanish speakers use this term with me in an endearing way. Moreover, I think it accurately represents the fact that I tend to be foreign in the places that I visit while also connecting in my love for the Spanish language,” she explains on her blog.
