That's Me 👆 at the Pena Palace in Sintra, Portugal!

Hi, I’m Emy 👋

I’m Emy and I escape the 24/7 hustle of entrepreneurship by plane, boat, or train as often as I can. I wasn’t always an entrepreneur, I spent many years working 9-5 jobs that I hated. I believe everyone CAN and SHOULD travel if that’s what their heart is set on, no matter where they work or how many hours they work.

What can you expect from my travel blog? Expect in-depth city guides, lots of mentions about my fiance and cats, travel tips and hacks, and inspiration to explore your surroundings. 

  • I’ve been traveling the world between shifts and on my off days since I was 23.

  • As a social media and video production agency owner, I work 40+ hours a week. (Just like you!)

  • South Florida is where I call home. Land of the manatees, snowbirds, and hurricanes.

  • France, Chicago, and Atlanta are a few other places I’ve called home.

  • My fiance, TJ is alongside for the adventures and often times has the answer to “Where’s My Boarding Pass?”

  • Always try to make time in your life to do something for the first time.

Dear Rome, You're My Favorite.

Now, that we’re friends. Here’s more about me:

Some places surprise me, others feel like home. Overwhelming disappointment due to overhype and photoshopped images has happened to me too. (Lisbon, anyone?) You never know what travel will unveil in you, you just have to go. Here’s a list of places I adore:

  • New York, New York – This city ignites me and my creative energy. I go to New York when I’m feeling “blah” about my work.
  • Boston, MA – Boston was a city that I didn’t expect to love.
  • Rome, Italy – My dreams have always landed in Italy. Rome delivered.
  • Normandy, France – Every year you can find me on a farm in the hills of Normandy.

The list of “To Go” and “To Do” are long. Here are a few places I’m dreaming about during a conference call:

  • Crystal River, Florida – Swimming in the wild with manatees? Yes, please.
  • Colorado – Any recommendations?
  • Tuscany, Italy – Lost count of the number of reasons
  • Azores Islands, Portugal – Tropical, lush, and unlike anywhere else Europe offers.

What I do:

I wear a lot of hats and am in a constant state of “hat hair”. I’m the Co-Founder and Director of Marketing of a social media-focused digital agency and video production company in South Florida. A normal day for me means being on my second cup of coffee by 7 AM, reviewing Facebook advertising campaigns, working with my team of videographers and designers, and brainstorming the ways to catapult my clients onto the screens of their target audience.

Why I Started Where’s My Boarding Pass:

I decided to share my stories about how I juggle being a boss, working on passion projects, and manage to travel. It hasn’t always been easy to work on the road or find 4 days to get away in a month without everything falling apart. I share raw stories about the breakdowns I’ve had in airports and how I’ve walked the line of “giving up” being an entrepreneur because of burnout. I’ll share valuable advice on the tools I use to manage my business from aboard, all the things I did wrong (for YEARS), and how I visited 3 states in 18 hours on an off day!  

This is my message to you: It doesn’t matter if you’re a CEO, a stay-at-home parent, sales guy, or chick who works at the local coffee shop, you deserve to act on your desire to travel. It can be done, all you have to do is figure out where your boarding pass is.
