About

Meet LaToyia Downs


I am a molecular biology graduate that has a passion for travel. When I am not in the lab doing research, I am jet-setting to other countries trying to obtain new cultural experiences. My first travel experience was to Los Angeles and I was hooked. Since then, I have been to multiple countries and met many great friends along the way.

I began The Impulse Traveler because I wanted to share my travel experiences with people like you. Never did I think that it would become as big as it has. I am so grateful to be able to share my travel journey with people who appreciate it as I do.

If you don't know me, you will quickly find out that I am a goofy, adventurous, and AWKWARD person. Think of your clumsiest friend and multiply that by 1000.

Whatever internet force guided you here, I am extremely grateful. Let's get to know each other and spill some secrets. On my blog, I will be giving my fool-proof travel tips and tricks and advice on how to make money blogging.

There is a learning curve associated with travel. Think of my blog as a travel destination crash course so you don't have to cry in the airport or forget an essential item whether it be clothes or a tourist visa (I have experienced it all).

What are you waiting for?! Let's get started! If I were you, I would start HERE!
