Up & Explore: A way to discover women group travel trips quickly and easily
My goal is to empower, inspire, and encourage women to see the world.
I’m Amy Truong and I’m a world traveler and digital nomad. I’ve been to 25+ countries and counting – you can read about my adventures at Generic Dreams.
I was born in California and raised in northern Virginia. After living the corporate life for awhile and needing a change, I became a digital nomad. After a few amazing years of adventuring, I’ve decided to make Hawaii a “home base.”
I’ve slowed down my nomadic adventures but not the travel part. I currently work in business development and have a slew of different projects to spend my time on such as Up & Explore, function(core), volunteering, and teach others as well as encourage the digital nomad & travel life.
