The Travel Dispatch

It's Like A Travel-Themed Reality Show...... For Your Inbox

Praise For The Travel Dispatch

Witty, intriguing, and at times laugh-out-loud-hilarious, The Travel Dispatch gives us an authentic, behind-the-perfect-Instagram-shot peek at the daily existence of a perpetual nomad. A travel blog for the new age, Sarra's memorable email dispatches breathe life into the often stale, humdrum life of an inbox.

TIME magazine calls Kristen Sarra the Anthony Bourdain of the millennial generation.

- the movie-trailer voiceover guy in a dream I once had

The Travel Dispatch gets two thumbs up! It's like if The Truman Show were broadcast live over email.

- Siskel and Ebert probably

I just got dispatch'd. Never has an inbox invasion been so much fun!

I’m Kristen.

The walking disaster, single-because-seriously-why-would-anyone, 30-something year old female protagonist of The Travel Dispatch. Each year I allocate a certain amount of time and cash flow to one particular journey and document the trip in real-time via short, daily dispatches sent straight to your inbox. Thus allowing you to follow the expedition from beginning to end without ever having to leave your couch. Or put on pants.

With a budget of $25,000, the current journey is taking on the classic “round-the-world” route as I travel east to west, looping the globe over a period of 12 months. Here, thissa explains it all.

 Currently Dispatching From Panama City, Panama

I’m here – among nonstop rainstorms – kicking off the first Travel Dispatch journey. It’s been all of 7 hours and I’ve already left my toiletry bag on the airplane, boarded the wrong public bus, and had my passport denied by two different machines at border control. Ah the joys of living life on the road.

Bop over to Instagram Stories if you wanna see me screw up some more.
