I am glad you found me here, welcome!
My name is Katie Baxter. I am a Washington, D.C. local, but I have spent many months and years traveling and living abroad.
I started this blog in 2012 as a way to share my travels, recipes, thoughts, and ideas with the world.
If someone asked me, “who are you, and what do you believe,” here is how I would answer. Theoretically, I don’t like to self identify, but you will find hints of these pieces of my identity sprinkled around my blog, and in my writing, so I may as well clarify.
I am vegan for health, spiritual practice, animals, and the environment.
I travel for wisdom, to gain compassion and understanding, and to learn yoga, meditation, and the healing arts from humans around the world.
I am Buddhist, but I respect, honor, cherish, study, and sometimes practice religious ritual and ceremony from all communities living in love, compassion, self awareness, and aiming to cultivate wisdom and understanding. Buddhism for me is not dogma, it’s a system of reaching enlightenment through personal, experiential practice.
And what about work? “How can you afford to travel so much”
Even though I have a few University degrees, I live a bit unconventionally now, so I have had to find my way outside of the 9-5 career world. At this point, I like to consider myself a renaissance person if you will, a jack of many trades.
I write. I am a professional writer; I write web marketing content and professional blog posts.
I heal. am a Thai Bodyworker, and yoga teacher.
I care for mothers and children. I am a childcare provider, and soon to be birth doula.
I lead. I organize and facilitate community groups and support several non-profit projects around the world.
