“Cee’s the Day!”

Glaciar Martial Photo Opp Jump

Hello, and welcome to my intrepid world of travel!

My name is Celia, and I’m from Southern California. I’m an adventurer, explorer, foodie, and wine lover. At 18 years old, I had my first gap year in Bali and Guam. It was the “best year of my life” and also where I give credit for my travel obsession. I tried the corporate thing working in several industries ranging from fashion to food to finance and taking whatever paid time off I could to fix my travel bug, but the drawing board kept coming back to this. It wasn’t until October 2015 that I crossed the Rubicon, sold everything I owned, and decided to make this a full-time thing.


My mission is to educate you providing you with useful guides, advice and reviews; entertain you with adventurous and sometimes heartwarming stories, and inspire you to do the same. 


I prioritize the outdoors and nature primarily in my travels. You’ll find me hiking, trekking, kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving, cliff jumping, cave exploring, vineyard hopping (that’s outdoors, right?) to SUPing, sailing, and surfing – from Couchsurfing to barely catching a wave. 🙂

Likely I’ll have to reside in major cities to get to off-the-beaten-path destinations. During my city visits, I’ll tap into my foodie side and explore the local cuisine. 

I’m driven more by mountains and beaches than museums, so if that’s your style you should subscribe to my monthly newsletter. 

Because I’ve been allowing this blog idea to marinate for at least ten years, I’ve decided to call my blog,

“Travel Marinade”.
