Welcome to Furiosities!

I’m Caitlin, the founder, editor, photographer, and voice behind Furiosities. I am a freelance writer and blogger living in New York City. My goal is to write honest, evocative stories about travel — I want to express the good, the bad, and the ugly of living out of a backpack for an extended period.

Furiosities began in late 2016 when I spent six months volunteering with Ya’axché Conservation Trust, a Belizean conservation NGO. In March 2017 I left Belize to backpack around Central America. I traveled for 101 days and amassed an incredible amount of stories and experiences. During that time I learned a lot about myself, privilege, and the world. I caught the travel bug, and I don’t think I’ll ever stop. You can read more about my travels in Central America in my post about planning my trip.

Furiosities’ first year was a little nontraditional and very exciting. In November 2017 I was published in an amazing anthology of women’s travel writing. Furiosities content has also been featured on Dave’s Travel Corner, the Cayo Scoop, and Belizean news. I have big plans for the upcoming months and I look forward to all the stories, mishaps, and inspiration that the future holds.

So what are you waiting for? Join the adventure!
