About Me

Living my life one stamp at a time 


Hi everyone! My name is Ayana Lee and I am the creator behind TheExcursionista. Traveling truly makes me see the world as a brighter place. There is so much to see, so much to learn, and so many stories to tell. 

 My passion for travel started at a young age as both of my parents are from the beautiful island of Jamaica. I am blessed that they were able to take my sister and me there from an early age so we could learn our roots and embrace our culture. I remember realizing how much there was to experience beyond the walls of our home, and even our city. The experiences that I've gained stepping out of my comfort zone and seeing the world are incomparable. I've been to over 20 countries, planned over 15 trips, and my heart for wandering never fails. 

If there's one thing about me, I'm going to organize and plan a trip! Although I am spontaneous at heart, I am a planner by trade so that carried over into me pre-planning and budgeting for all my trips. Traveling doesn't have to be expensive if you plan it right! 

My travel itineraries are curated from my own experiences and research. I have travel guides ranging from luxury to ballin on a budget. My goal is to help people travel smarter and to inspire them to see the world without breaking the bank. Now it's time to take that trip you've always been talking about!
