Freelance Writer, Truly Experiences

Rae is a 20-something professional digital nomad with a deep dislike for the term ‘digital nomad’. When she’s not daydreaming about squirrels, bamboo straws and strong cheese, she’s hunched over her laptop, furiously smashing out sarcastic jokes and witty words. Her work has received starred reviews from her mother, her cat and her local McDonald’s server. Most days you’ll find Rae galavanting around the world, hopping from one coffee shop to the next on the hunt for the world’s fastest Wifi and perfectly ripe avocado.

It’s that time again. The time of premature Christmas carolling in shopping aisles. The time of serious food overindulgence. And the time of last-minute Christmas gift stress.
