What does it take to become a full-time gypsy adventurer---one without a permanent address or a home? Imagine life as a full time cyclist, trekker, scuba diver, blogger and vlogger. Rachel Yaseen did exactly this and strives to inspire/assist others to pursue their own adventures & dreams. Three years ago, Rachel gave away most of her belongings to live a nomadic lifestyle. Delving into the unknown is not always comfortable but it is very rewarding. Come view photos and hear stories about preparation and perseverance while walking the Camino de Santiago (3 routes, 3 separate times); cycling from Denmark to Croatia; scuba diving in Thailand, British Virgin Islands & Mexico; backpacking the AZT; exploring Machu Picchu; spending time at an upstate NY Ashram; and trekking the Mexican Camino in Oaxaca. In December 2018, she embarked on a human powered cycling trip around the world--- having biked thus far through Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia, 14 Indonesian islands and Australia during the recent deadly fires. Her young son also joins her several times a year on her travels. Rachel previously lived in Tucson where she was a certified yoga instructor and chef.
