Hey there! Welcome to Global Gabe, my blog dedicated to sharing travel info & experiences with you. My name is Gabriel, but feel free to call me Gabe. I’d like to think of myself as a seasoned traveller, but I’m mostly just an addict who indulges in his drug of choice quite frequently – I hope you still know I’m talking about travel. My specialties are trip planning, budget travel, and language learning, and my goal is to curate useful travel knowledge that will help create amazing travel experiences for others around the world.
More About Me
I’m 29 years old and I was born and raised in the land of maple syrup, Canada, in a city called Edmonton, the capital of the province of Alberta. I graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Commerce (business) degree with a major in Marketing and a minor in International Business. I’m currently working as a copywriter in Madrid, Spain, where I am diligently trying to hone my Spanish skills with the aid of complete immersion. My career has given me the flexibility to work remotely as a digital nomad, giving me more opportunities to globetrot.
My Travel Profile
I’ve travelled to over 35 countries in the last 5 years and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. I’ve lived abroad 4 times: twice for study abroad programs (in Brazil & Austria) and twice after graduating (in Spain & Italy). I enjoy taking longer-duration trips so that I can get a more holistic picture of the places I visit.
I generally travel solo, mostly out of convenience, but I also really enjoy travelling with others. I’ve gone on several solo backpacking trips and have organized many trips with friends & family. I’m a planner when it comes to travel, but I also like to keep some room for flexibility in my itinerary to allow me to spontaneously change anything based on any info and recommendations I accumulate along the way.
As for my upcoming travel plans, I currently don’t have anything scheduled, but that could change soon. So you’ll just have to follow along and see where Gabe goes!
