I'm Olivia Christine Perez,

the travel expert behind O. Christine: a NYC-based blog that inspires people to prioritize travel and wellness, invest in experiences, and connect with the outdoors. You can call me Olivia.

As a Bronx-born Latina (with Lupus and a former overworked career) I know what it feels like to burn out and wish for an escape. What it feels like to be unsure of how to start anew.

This blog's mission is to (1) remind you that we can create a life we love despite our circumstance, (2) inspire you to explore overseas and in your own backyard, and (3) help you get started! We all deserve to explore more, rest and relax, frolic in nature, and live well.

You must want to learn more! Here are some bullet points on frequently asked questions. If your travel question isn't answered on this blog via the search bar below, send me an IG comment or email

 

✈︎ What is your travel style?

From outdoor adventures and memorable gastronomy, to affordably luxurious getaways, wellness experiences, or local home-stays — I consider my style of travel to be peaceful, immersive, and cultural. 
 

✈︎ How are you able to travel with lupus?

I wrote a pretty detailed article on how I managed my lupus in order to travel more. Four years later and I'm still doing great! Remember to always consult with your doctor first.
 

✈︎ How can I Afford to travel?

Travel is all about exploring within your means while improving your saving habits. Here's how I saved thousands of dollars in one year while being a broke New Yorker. Now I make money through ads, partnerships, and freelance work.
 

✈︎ Who is the dude you always travel with?

That’s Alex, my fiancé. Though I started my travel journey solo, he joined me in 2015 and travels with me 85% of the time. Much of travel content is geared toward solo and couple travelers, but based on our travel experiences as a couple.

✈︎ Do you just travel for a living? How can I do what you do?

I do a lot to sustain this traveling life. I create media content for brands; work freelance as a marketer, designer, writer; and spend at least 20hrs/week creating free blog content. When people ask this, they're usually referring to just the travel perks; if you're willing to do the work you can achieve anything you want!
 

✈︎ Should I quit my job to travel the world?

I won't say 'quit your job to travel', but I will encourage you to invest more time into joyful experiences — which might, in turn, make you quit an unfulfilling job to pursue bigger, better things. You don't have to become a nomad to travel.
 

✈︎ Will I miss out on love if I follow my travel dreams?

Hell naw! The best thing about love is it can happen anywhere, anytime. Your future love is attracted to you because you follow your dreams. In fact, I found my love because of travel. We are getting married next year. 
 

✈︎ How can I work with your travel blog?

Well, shucks! I'm flattered. I am always open to hearing proposals but must note that I do not accept guest posts, paid links, or off-brand collaborations. View my services to learn more.
