About Passport To Eden

Hi, I’m Anshula (Un-shah-la)! I’m a full-time travel blogger, self-titled bookstore chaser, and small-town lover.

I’m currently on a mission to see all 50 states in the USA. I’ve visited 21 so far and hopefully, I’ll get through them all by 2021 (I say this every year. It doesn’t happen. Y’all, I travel slow. No shame)!

At the start of 2019, I quit pursuing a Ph.D. in Computational Linguistics so I could take my blog full-time. And I haven’t looked back since!

My goal is to inspire you in any way I can, whether that’s following your childhood dreams or taking a staycation in your own hometown.

What’s Your Travel Style?

I like quiet, tame escapes (so boring, I know – yawn). I’m obsessed with museums (especially art museums). I like finding random remote destinations (realistically, I get lost a lot and this is my excuse) and stopping by every small town whilst on road trips.

And I love food. I will always try local cuisine (no excuses – this is the one place where I dare to be adventurous)!

What’s Your Favorite Book?

What’s Your Favorite Destination?

Kingston, Jamaica because it’s home. And home is where my heart is.

Can I Pick Your Brain About Blogging?

Yes! Absolutely. The fastest way to get a response is via email: [email protected] Alternatively, you can DM me on Instagram.

2020 Goals

  • Visit Yellowstone National Park. I need some serious cheap flight mojo for this. Wish me luck!
  • Travel sustainably (I’m reading up on this a lot. If you run a sustainable travel blog or have any tips, please send them over – much appreciated).

Introduce Yourself. I Want To Know You

If there is one thing I LOVE more than traveling, it’s getting to know my readers. Send me an email introducing yourself. Do you run a blog? I’d love to read it. Do you have an amazing travel story? I’d love to hear it. Do you just want to talk about life? I’m game for that. I like to think of my readers as my friends so please don’t hesitate to reach out!

I also value your input. Do you have additions for any of my guides? Is there a destination I haven’t covered that’s on your bucket list? Let me know.

P.S. I’m trying to hold more reader meetups this year (fair warning, you will be subject to the craziness of my husband and me together. We’re somewhat accident-prone, extremely socially awkward, and all-around weird).

EMAIL: [email protected]

On that note, thank you for stopping by. It really means the world to me (*reaches out for another bear hug*). I hope you find infinite pieces of paradise. 

Happy Travels,
