About Me

I’m Erika Bisbocci, a travel-obsessed backpacker, flight attendant and returned WorldTeach volunteer, who has done her best to carve out a life on the path less traveled.

Upon graduating from university with a degree in International Studies and minors in Anthropology and Arabic, I bade farewell to the comforts of home and boarded a plane for Namibia, Africa, where I decided to spend a year volunteering through WorldTeach.

Living abroad for an extended period of time has long been a dream of mine, as traveling has been a substantial part of my life from before I could remember. I was only six months old when I received my first passport and since then I have collected stamps from over seventy countries on five different continents. What began as yearly trips to visit family in Italy, soon turned into month-long voyages around Europe, Latin America and Asia with my parents.

These trips taught me a lot about different cultures, traditions and history. Most of all, however, they taught me about myself–about my passions, my priorities and the way I would like to live my life. They instilled in me a love for travel that is at times overwhelming. Hardly a day goes by in which I am not thinking about my next destination.

In short, traveling has become an addiction.

  2. Hi Erika! Oh my gosh you’re living my dream!! Hahaha my situations a little different, I haven’t travelled far until last year, it was my first time on a plane and I fell in love. I always wanted to travel and I’m a server and love meeting new people, and knew a flight attendant is me written all over it! I ended up taking a Flight Attendant course and I’m learning French, but I was hoping u could give me some interview tips?? Any words of advice are truly appreciated!! By the way, congrats! Getting out there and seeing as much as possible is awesome and that’s so cool you get to do that. Thanks for you’re time and words of wisdom! 🙂
