Julia Helena is a Los Angeles resident and native but vagabond at heart. She loves sports, puppies, wine and exploring the world. She believes travel is simply invaluable, but also that it does not have to be as expensive as many people think, even for those of us who enjoy the "finer things"! She travels to experience culture and culture shock, luxury and lack thereof, and much of this amazing planet as she can. She over-packs, over-prepares, takes too many photos, indulges a little too much, and loves every moment of it. Julia is a travel columnist for The Divine Addiction, and you can follow her on Instagram @thejuliahelena.
