Embolden Adventures. Encouraging YOU to see the world.
Hi! I’m Sara! It’s nice to meet you. Thank you for visting Embolden Adventures!
My goal is to get YOU to travel somewhere you always wanted to go – is it Rome? Machu Picchu? China? The Great Pyramids of Egypt? All 50 U.S. States? I want you to be bitten by the travel bug just like I was.
Embolden Adventures is meant to inspire you to travel; To give you the courage to see the world; To get out there! To explore! To learn!
A bit about me: I am a passionate, world-traveling, scuba-diving, wanderlusting, former-Wall Streeter, New Yorker. I love to travel, I love to explore, I love to discover, and I love to learn.
In 2009 on the heels of the financial crisis, I became scuba certified. I went on one dive trip, fell in love with diving, and I haven’t looked back. The motion of the ocean–its harmonious nature–its healing powers–have begun to bring me back to life.
Since then, I have been embarking on adventures around the world from the depths of the oceans to the heights of the mountains and beyond.
I have scuba dived with great white sharks, whale sharks, schools of hammerhead sharks, dolphins, manta rays, sea lions, and other exotic sea creatures; climbed to the top of Mt. Fuji; taken a hot air balloon ride over the ancient pagodas of Bagan, Myanmar and the Irrawaddy River; saw the mysterious moai of Easter Island; explored the remote Datong China region; seen a volcano erupt in Costa Rica; watched the sun set over the Mauna Kea summit in Hawaii; traveled to Bogota, Colombia to see Metallica, meditated with Buddhist monks in upstate New York; and danced the tango in Buenos Aires, Argentina to name a few fun travel experiences.
So far, I have visited 35 countries and 30 U.S. States and territories.
In 2016, I traveled to Jordan for a wedding followed by a trip to Abu Dhabi to meet my doppleganger who I saw featured in the NY Times. We connected on email through social media. Now, as part of my Podcast series, I am featuring both our in-person meeting as well as my trip around Jordan including visits to Petra (riding a camel), the Wadi Rum desert (staying with the Bedouins in a tent in the desert), the Dead Sea and the Red Sea.
Over these last few years, I have inspired and encouraged others around me to join me on epic adventures – adventures that, just a few years ago, were the wildest of our dreams and entirely out of our comfort zone.
And now I would like to do the same for you. Over time you will learn more about my story and hear about my past adventures. You will also be able to follow along the way as I brainstorm new trip ideas, recruit willing travel buddies, plan out trip details and logistics, and experience the journey as it unfolds. You will be Emboldened!
