Hi my name is Tempesst! I am a nurse practitioner from New Orleans, Louisiana (NOLA). After my first long term backpacking trip to Southeast Asia in 2015, I decided to enter the world of travel nursing. As a travel nurse, I worked three month contracts at a time in the U.S., and then used the unlimited time off in between assignments to backpack around the globe until it was time to come home again to pad the pockets with another three months of work.
In 2017 I began graduate school to become a Psychiatric-Mental Health Nurse Practitioner, and I graduated in August 2018. I’m currently job searching for a NP position with tons of vacation time so that I can continue to travel and backpack as much as possible while also growing in my career as an NP. I haven’t been everywhere, my photography and writing skills leave a lot to be desired, and I’ve had a lot of misadventures along the way, but I do hope that my blog inspires you to get after your travel dreams in some way. Cheers to your next adventure!
