Είναι όμορφη, νέα και επιτυχημένη! Θεωρητικά η Kiersten Rich είχε τα πάντα! Και όμως! Άφησε την καριέρα που με κόπο είχε χτίσει στα οικονομικά για να γίνει μια από τις πιο διάσημες Instagrammers και για να πληρώνεται να ταξιδεύει!

Η 27χρονη από την Καλιφόρνια δημιούργησε blog και λογαριασμό στο Instagram, το «The Blonde Abroad», ο οποίος έχει πάνω από 120.000 followers και έχει καταφέρει το απίστευτο...να πληρώνεται για να ζει όπως ονειρευόταν, δηλαδή να ταξιδεύει όλο τον κόσμο!

Showcasing her sunkissed skin, flowing blonde hair and an array of exotic holiday locations - it is clear to see why traveller Kiersten Rich has become an internet sensation in the process 

Η νέα της ζωή άρχισε το 2011, όταν η Rich αποφάσισε να αφήσει την δουλειά της.

Από βόλτες με πόνι στην Ισλανδία μέχρι βόλτες με γιοτ στην Κροατία, η εξερευνήτρια έχει βιώσει εμπειρίες που ο καθένας θα ζήλευε.

Her new life began in 2011 when Rich decided to leave behind her corporate job and went in search of beautiful destinations to document. Pictured on a hotel water slide in Puerto Rico

Πέντε χρόνια μετά, η φωτογενής ταξιδεύτρια κατάφερε πρόσφατα να κάνει το 50ο ταξίδι της, γιορτάζοντας την παραμονή της Πρωτοχρονιάς στο Ρίο ντε Τζανέιρο, στην Βραζιλία με τη μαμά της.

Η Rich δήλωσε στην MailOnline Travel: «Φανταζόμουν ότι τα δύο πρώτα χρόνια του blog μου επρόκειτο να είναι δύσκολα και ότι θα αποτύχνανα.

The American, who refers to herself as an adventure enthusiast, is proof that diligence pays off as she now enjoys plenty of income from her jet-setting lifestyle to places such as Whistler (pictured)

«Πίστευα ότι κανείς δεν θα διαβάζει το blog μου. Δούλεψα πάρα πολύ, έδινα βάση στην κριτική, και επεδίωκα την καλύτερη επικοινωνία με το κοινό μου».

«Για έναν επιχειρηματία ή για κάθε νέο ιδιοκτήτη επιχείρησης, λέγεται ότι χρειάζονται τουλάχιστον δύο χρόνια για μια νέα επιχείρηση να καταστεί κερδοφόρα. Αλλά αυτή η επιτυχία δεν είναι εγγυημένη».

The majority of her trips are solo but she has come to love travelling by herself despite initially thinking it would be extremely lonely. Pictured at Atlantis Resort in Bahamas

Στην πραγματικότητα το blog και ο λογαριασμός της έχει τόση επιτυχία, που η Rich απασχολεί σήμερα έναν content director, ο οποίος δουλεύει απίστευτες ώρες κάθε εβδομάδα για να εξασφαλίζει ότι η ιστοσελίδα θα έχει ενδιαφέροντα άρθρα που θα δημοσιεύονται καθημερινά.

Το Blonde Abroad, το οποίο διαθέτει συμβουλές για ταξίδια, μόδα, φεστιβάλ και φωτογραφίες από όλο τον κόσμο, έχει επίσης διευθυντή social media και έναν ειδικό εμπειρογνώμονα από το Pinterest.

From encountering ponies in Iceland, seeing starfish in the Panama San Blas Islands (pictured) to braving dizzying heights on Mt. Huashan in China, the explorer has had experiences many would dream of

Rich revealed that life on the road isn't always rosy, and finding love can be tricky. She is currently single and said that dating is definitely one of the most complicated parts of being a digital nomad, although visiting places such as Puerto Rica is a massive perk

Rich was lucky enough to spend the day playing with adorable sloths at the Gamboa Rainforest Resort in Panama

In the first two years there was no sugar-coating her experience and she regularly had to blog and work for free. Pictured scaling the precarious Mt. Huashan in China

While many  posts feature stunning natural landscapes, there are also hotel and tourist attractions included, such as Universal Studios

Rich gets paid to produce promotional content such as photography, videos or social media marketing for those clients, such as her recent trip with Crystal Cruises

More recently, however she has started a travel web series with a longtime friend, Courtney Scott, so they often get to tour different 'girls trip' destinations and share their experiences on their channel 'Girls Meet Globe'

Fans who follow her adventures to places such as Aruba (pictured) on her website or Instagram will notice that her travel pictures have a distinctive theme to them which mainly features bright colours 

Many of her pictures feature her flowing blonde locks as she looks out to exotic backdrops such as this one in Brazil

Currently Rich has no plans to slow down. She'll soon be speaking in New York at the Women's Travel Fest and then flying out to Austria for The Ski Week. Pictured during her trip to China

Iceland is one of her favourite countries to visit. Pictured is Rich making friends with some of the local inhabitants

The Blonde Abroad website features travel tips, fashion, festivals and photography from around the world

Rich's travel website and Instagram has grown so much she now employs a director of social media and a dedicated Pinterest expert

The 27-year-old said she can't imagine ever going back to the nine-to-five life, and if blogging ever became too much for her, she would use the experience and her knowledge to build on her consulting business more extensively

Over the course of the last few years, the blonde hasn't had a place to call home as she has actually only spent three months of last year in the USA (where she is from)

Rich manages to live rent-free as she is constantly on the move seeing places such Atlantis in the Bahamas 

The nomad advised that if you want to start a blog to support your travels, you should begin with pure intentions, hard work and perseverance, and not just be motivated to make money. Pictured on the Haiku Stairs in Hawaii 

The traveller said she imagined the first two years of her blog were going to be challenging and that she would potentially fail but that didn't deter her writing about places such as Yosemite National Park
