Thanks for stopping by!

The Spaces Between is about finding balance between the extremes of life abroad—and life in general. It’s about finding that sweet spot between fear and courage; between comfort and pushing your boundaries. It’s about the accumulation of tiny victories. And it’s about figuring out what to hold on to and what to let go.

Oh, and there are pictures—lots of them. And unexpected friendships. And gelato. Those are things I hold on to. :)


My name is Whitney and I’m originally from San Diego, California. I was an English (ESL) teacher for 10 years, both back home in San Diego and, most recently, in Korea. Then I decided to make a change. I wanted to be mobile. I wanted to travel. I’m now a freelance content writer, which enables me to roam (relatively) freely around the world—just me and my laptop. And, okay, my 50-pound suitcase.

This website is a collection of my photos and stories from traveling and living abroad. Join me as I photograph, eat, work, and fumble my way through life overseas.
