When I was 19 years old I moved on a whim to Venice, Italy, where I spent many months working in a hostel and running a pub crawl. It was there that I earned the nickname Pina ...because “Erin” is hard to pronounce if you speak Italian.
My travel love affair started at 16, when my parents sent me alone to visit family in the Netherlands. Following that I spent time living in Italy, the Netherlands, and traveled across Europe and Central America solo.
Solo No More
In 2010 I met my now-boyfriend in a hostel on the Greek Island of Corfu. We crashed a Greek wedding and fell for each other. Fast forward 8 years, he is now my partner, best friend and travel buddy. We have traveled through Asia, Central America, Europe and the Middle East together.
