Hi there!  Welcome to Simple Roaming! 

I am Joy, a travel and photography enthusiast and a business professional.  I started Simple Roaming to offer an authentic platform for the travel-loving busy professionals like me to share our unique travel stories and tips, to help planning the most adventure-packed trips, and to inspire each other to live a simpler but richer life.

I love exploring new places, learning about different cultures, and meeting interesting people.  I am not a full-time traveler or nomad.  Like most of us, I have a professional life and limited vacation time.  Because of that, I want to experience as much as I can while I travel.  I have accumulated a lot of experience from my international and domestic travels for both leisure and business in the past many years.  I love to research and plan from big-picture itinerary to logistic details.  According to families and friends, I plan "killer" trips (killer may not be the best word to use here but you get my point).  Then they said, "why don't you share how you do it?"  That's the beginning of Simple Roaming!

Just in case you wonder who "we" are in my stories, that's me and my husband, Steve.  He definitely makes traveling more entertaining and everything in life more fun.  If you must travel solo, travel in style and make friends as you go.  If you travel with a partner or family, keep each other laugh and picture-perfect.  Ditch the selfie stick please.

I'd love to hear from you about anything!  Your travel stories, your life hacks, ideas, photos, challenges, questions...  I will try to respond to all of them.  You can write to me in the Contact Form, leave a comment or question under any related post, and don't forget to sign up below to hear the latest stories from me.  No spam.  Just good stories and tips.
