Welcome! My name is Anika Mikkelson, a 20-something teacher / synchronized swimmer / yogini / cyclist who after earning a Master’s in Mathematics Education and teaching for 5 years, decided to ditch the classroom to map out the world. Born and raised in Minnesota, I have since lived in Texas, Colorado, Kuwait, Myanmar, and now call the world my home.

Making my way through over 80 countries so far, I don’t plan to stop until I’ve been to each one. Traveling full-time, I aim to inspire others to explore through collections of photographs and stories. Each photo you see and each story you read is my original work.

To stay up-to-date, press the little blue “Follow” button on my blog Miss Maps and Marvels  and connect with me on Facebook , Twitter and of course –  Instagram!

And, if you’d like to meet up along the way, let me know!

Thank you for joining!
Happy Mapping
