Hello, fellow travel enthusiasts! My name is Darlene Navarro and welcome to my travel blog, The Foreign Gal.

Hmm, where to start…

Tossa de Mar, Cataluna, Spain

I got bit by the travel bug back in 2013 when I took my first trip to Europe (France and Spain) during my senior year in high school. I’ve always dreamt of going to Paris since I was a young girl in elementary school, and had never thought I’d be blessed enough to go during the age of 18.

Growing up, I’ve never had any “cool” stories to share with my friends. I never felt like my life was interesting enough to others. And so I wanted to explore the world and try everything. Absolutely everything. Of course, this all changed soon enough when I became determined to do so.

Keeping up with a busy life of mine as a full time student, a part time nanny, and being an amazing big sister to my baby brothers, I travel as frequently as I can.


This travel blog of mine is far more than just crossing accomplishments off my bucket list, it is for you too. And as long as I can actually manage to inspire anybody to book a trip across the country, or simply have an adventure anywhere in the world, then my blog and I have succeeded.

Come explore this world with me!
