Welcome to my adventure blog



I’m Melissa, a wandering “slowmad” on a relentless quest for adventure since I left the conventional lifestyle behind in 2022. My partner, Josh, and I began this journey after the rising costs in San Diego made us rethink what a fulfilling life truly means. With a boundless curiosity about the world, we transformed our lives into a series of adventures and learning experiences. From Tulum to Spain to Switzerland, and beyond, we’ve embraced slow travel—immersing ourselves in cultures, forming deep connections, and living life on our terms. My goal is to inspire you to step out of your comfort zone, embrace the unknown, and travel with intention and responsibility. Welcome, friends, to Aqua Apple—a space where I share our slow travel stories, insights on maintaining a health-conscious lifestyle on the go, and tips on creating your freedom lifestyle, one adventure at a time. Let’s embark on this journey together, shall we?


Planning an adventure? Whether you’re diving into the vibrant waters of Mexico or exploring the historic charm of Europe, make sure you’re prepared. Check out all my travel blogs and digital nomad guides for tips, insights, and inspiration to make your journey unforgettable!
