Hi y’all, I’m Mel! Welcome to Life Mel Traveled!

I’m a Texas girl living in Lisbon, Portugal. I’m a carbs lover, wine and coffee drinker, couch potato, photography dabbler, writer, Texas A&M Aggie, self-taught coder, website nerd, English teacher, and a bit of a traveler. About two years ago I quit my job as a Recruiter and moved to Beijing, China to teach English to the most adorable children. It was a bold move to leave my comfortable life in Houston, but I have absolutely no regrets! I’m still hooked on traveling and recently relocated to Lisbon, Portugal to continue the adventure! Check out my blog as I give you an insight to my travels, and hopefully inspire you to do something big or go somewhere new in your life too!
