Hi, I’m Lucy!
Welcome to the blog where all my travel stories, advice and mishaps end up. I want to inspire young people to get out there and see the world (without sacrificing education).
Follow along as I stumble through a life of medical school and achieving my mission:
To visit 100 countries by the time I’m 25 (and try not to rush them)!
Hope you enjoy Travel Textbook and it helps you (even just a little bit) to discover new people, places and memories.
