Playing small does not serve the world!
Hi! My name is Autumn and I am an ADVENTURER!
In 2022 I decided to sell my 22 acre farm near Seattle and relocate to sunny Scottsdale, Arizona! My personal website is called "Never Unpack Your Suitcase" because most of my life has been moving from one place to the next and I have learned to be poised and ready for wherever this journey takes me! The pages of NUYS will be filled with videos, pictures, and stories of some of the most incredible countries, homes, and experiences across the globe. Additionally, if you would like to book a once in a lifetime adventure or hire me as your personal tour guide, I offer VIP tours throughout Asia, Africa, Europe, the Middle East, Australia, Indonesia, and the entire United States. I am an advanced deep water scuba diver, skydiver, skier, equestrian, photographer, history buff, and am a licensed Real Estate Agent in Arizona!
I have been traveling for as long as I can remember.
I tend to gravitate towards more adventurous or culturally authentic experiences when I travel while immersing myself in my surroundings. I want to touch, taste, and see everything! Each continent offers something special and unique: mind-blowing festivals, intimate wildlife encounters, dramatic geographical landforms, rich cultural diversity, intoxicating cuisine, extreme and awe-inspiring plant-life, thrilling activities, and historical structures that offer a glimpse of past civilizations.
My Travel Blog is full of stories that highlight the best aspects of each destination. You'll see my favorite places to ski, dive, hike, trek, sail, sky-dive, eat, lounge, sunbathe, beach-comb, shop, and explore. Along the way, I'll give you in-depth reviews of some of the most amazing hotels, villas, castles, restaurants, villages, beaches, festivals, activities, and islands in the world!
Farm-Life is the BEST life!
I have always lived on acreage...letting my curious nature carry me away into fields of tall grass and orchards for as far as the eye could see. Climbing trees, fishing in ponds, growing my own food, this is where my love of nature and the world around me was fostered, a love that has carried me throughout many continents, and deep into the cultures that live there.
Currently, I have many different types of animals who live on my farm including horses, sheep, Kune Kune pigs, bunnies, peacocks, chickens, ducks, and even a macaw (named Khalessi) :)
In the middle of my property I have a beautiful stream that meanders through the farm and there are five different
types of salmon plus numerous trout that call this river home. The eagles, cranes, herons, foxes and bears come routinely to fish along the banks. Living with nature is something that I have always enjoyed and I consider myself an expert outdoors-woman and explorer!
Hi! Welcome to my website! My name is Autumn and I am an adventure travel guide and luxury real estate agent! I hope you'll enjoy all of my adventures!
