Welcome! My name is Anika Mikkelson, a 20-something teacher / synchronized swimmer / yogini / cyclist who after earning a Master’s in Mathematics Education and teaching for 5 years, decided to ditch the classroom to map out the world.
Born and raised in Minnesota, I have since lived in Texas, Colorado, Kuwait, and now call the world my home. Making my way through over 50 countries so far, I don’t plan to stop until I’ve been to each one.
Traveling full-time, I aim to inspire others to explore through collections of photographs and stories. Each photo you see and each story you read is my original work
