About Me

Hey! I’m Angela, your Curls Trip Travel buddy!

I’m Angela Chalmers, a youngish, African-American woman who was born and raised in North Carolina. In the past, my career path was that of a medical technologist. However, I am now an English teaching digital nomad.

It was time to nurture my other passion—teaching. Wanting to experience living and teaching in a foreign country, I secured a Guest English Teacher position in South Korea. The experience wasn’t what I expected, but it inspired me to start blogging. After my brief time in Korea, I returned to The States and went back to lab work. Shortly after, I got bored and experimented with online teaching. I loved it! From there, it was out with the lab and in with TEFL teaching.

Science has always been a love of mine. So, after college, I spent several years working in labs and hospitals. I loved the medical field but was tired of being confined within facility walls. Burned out, unappreciated and underpaid, I left.

Now, I’m happy living a digital nomad lifestyle, writing, teaching, and traveling. So far, I have spent time in 8 countries (some multiple times). I’ve been to South Korea, The Bahamas, Jamaica, The Dominican Republic; Mexico, China, Tanzania, and Canada.

I don’t travel for the sole purpose of tourism. The countries I choose are those I’m interested in moving to in the future. Depending on the vibe I get, I spend days to months in my destination countries. Therefore, by the time I leave a destination, I have a pretty good idea of whether or not I’ll be comfortable living there.

As I travel, I blog about my experiences, give travel tips, recommend products, and a bunch of other stuff! Follow me on my journeys and gain insights into various places, ways to make money, and tips on things like products and destinations that you can take advantage of right away.
