Welcome to my blog! I have been wanting to start a blog for a couple of years but didn’t know where to start. As usual, fate puts people in our lives at the right time. Upon starting a new job at my current company, one of my co-workers, Chika, shared her blog with me and encouraged me to get mine started up. Her blog has been an inspiration to me and I am so thankful for her friendship and advice.

I look forward to sharing my stories, adventures and lessons learned. The name of this site – Vicariously Through You – is a phrase I hear from family and friends a lot. I hope this site helps them not only live vicariously through me, but to be adventurous and plan trips of their own.

You should go check out Chika’s blog too! https://antibland.wordpress.com/

Meet Carmen

I’m Carmen, the founder of this blog and the Vicariously Through You community. I am so glad you’re here!

I currently live in Chicago, IL, USA with my Maltipoo pup, Stella. I am 40-something, single and do not have any children.

When I am not working on this blog and growing the Vicariously Through You community, I work as a Financial Analyst. In my free time, I travel as often as I can, often as a solo traveler. I enjoy rainy days, plain green tea, Chicago Cubs baseball and books with happy endings.
