ABOUT  TRAVELBREAK

Hi, I’m Stephanie Be.  A California girl and UCLA Alumna, I traded
corporate America for a gap year and never stopped! 42 countries later…

The world is my office.

TravelBreak serves two objectives:

  • To inspire you to step out of your comfort zone… literally and figuratively. As Mark Twain said “travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness.”  Travel is not just about the places we visit, but the people we meet and the person we become.
  • To make dreams into goals. “You are the engines of our economies and the source of our freedom” – Verne Harnish.  Find tips on taking the adventure you’ve always desired or take the leap as an entrepreneur.
    Join the waiting list for my new lifestyle app: BUENA — the only app you need to start your weekend.
