Hello Everyone,

I’m Dev Walker. I am a 30 year old finance risk analyst for a top-tier investment bank. Born and raised in NYC, from Coney Island, Brooklyn to Staten Island. I hadn’t ventured beyond the city much prior to 2015. What happened that year? Well, I had just gained my master's degree and ended my long term relationship. I embarked on a journey to find myself. What started as a trip to Miami with my sister one weekend, turned into a passion for travel, craving for new destinations and experiences, and the motivation to live my life by my own rules.
Two years and 17 countries later (and counting!) I started this blog because I’ve become a go-to resource for people with misconceptions, questions and curiosities about traveling, including how to fund it and how to balance it with work and life demands.
Traveling has played such a major role in my growth as an adult. I've learned things about myself that I probably wouldn't have if I stayed local, in my familiar surroundings. I can’t wait to share all my opinions on destinations and speak openly about my personal experiences. On that note, follow me on this never ending journey of exploration and self growth. Come along and Walk With Ms. Walker!
