About Me

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”31045″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center”][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_media_grid element_width=”12″ grid_id=”vc_gid:1494599764190-6cb2d253-08ad-10″ include=”18208″][vc_empty_space][vc_tta_tabs style=”modern” color=”purple” alignment=”center” active_section=”1″][vc_tta_section i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-child” add_icon=”true” title=”Who Am I?” tab_id=”1440612488091-d111c037-db26″][vc_column_text]Well for starters, my name is Tatum Skipper. Yes Tatum is my first name not my last. I am just a downright crazy and spontaneous girl from all over the southern U.S with a burning desire in my heart to travel the world. Hello? Permanent vacation sounds fun right?? I have a vulgar vocabulary and tend to tell it like it is. I will however say, that I do not categorize myself as a writer, or someone who knows everything about traveling the world. I am simply a girl who loves to experience life and write about those experiences through my own eyes.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-thumb-tack” add_icon=”true” title=”What I do?” tab_id=”1440612488091-164164f2-921b”][vc_column_text]Let’s just go ahead and clear this up before people start getting their granny panties in a wad. I am not some spoiled little brat who travels off of mommy and daddy’s money. To their dismay, I didn’t even finish college. Never had a six figure job living in a big city, and didn’t leave behind my cubical life to travel. I have always had odd and end jobs, making it so I can go and do as I please. It might seem like I travel often because I actually DO. I save money and literally live to travel. I am not a 9-5er, or an office worker. Those jobs just aren’t for me. So what do I do? I’m now doing what I love![/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-copyright” add_icon=”true” title=”Why the Name?” tab_id=”1458719709114-73fb16d7-6e3d”][vc_column_text]Bonvoyage Bitches..its catchy right?? I chose this name because I wanted it to reflect me as a person. Are you offended? Hopefully not but what do I care? I am putting myself out there in a way so that when you hear the name, you think “that’s Tatum! She’s the real deal”. Throwing a cuss word in there also lets the audience know what my intentions are with this whole blogging thing. I’m a real human being who has real feelings and emotions and that’s what I want people to understand about all of this.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-heart-o” add_icon=”true” title=”The Purpose?” tab_id=”1458719767829-acf55afe-f3b8″][vc_column_text]My main goal of starting this blog is to take the fluff out of travel blogs. I have seen enough “Top 10’s in Barcelona” or “Where to eat on a Budget in Ireland,” crap. This blog is to make you laugh, to inform you about the real shit that goes on while traveling and most importantly, to teach everyone that they do not have to settle for a mediocre life!

If you notice in my homepage, I have a “My Journey” menu instead of a “Destination” section. Why? Because I want to tell my point of view about places I’ve been and let you take what you want from that. Everyone has different taste buds, different techniques on how to travel and different ways of viewing the world. Why should you limit yourself to taking the main street that everyone else takes? Follow down my road that is a little less traveled and a lot more fun! AND PLEASE, understand that this blog is open for the interpretation of travel through my eyes. Read my posts, look at my pictures and take something away from this to help you on your next adventure! Deal ?[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-eye” add_icon=”true” title=”As Seen In” tab_id=”1482377536657-d1df5154-b38f”][vc_column_text]
