Anika is a woman on a mission to visit every country in the world.
Writing and Photographing all the way!
Welcome! My name is Anika Mikkelson, a teacher / synchronized swimmer / yogini / cyclist fresh into her 30s 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, South Africa!

Making my way through over 100 country/territories 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.
And, if you’d like to meet up along the way, let me know!
Thank you for joining!
