About Frayed Passport 2018-03-05T14:51:18+00:00

Welcome to Frayed Passport! I’m Sarah Vandenberg, and Frayed Passport is where I share my own travel adventures as well as tips and stories from fellow travelers all around the world.

I travel full-time as a digital nomad. I just spent two amazing months living in Portugal, and am making my way around Central America through April. I’m lucky enough to have the coolest job in the world: as director of partnerships for Volunteer Forever and Abroadly, I get to travel the globe, meet with volunteer / intern / teach abroad organizations, and share their stories and accomplishments with people who want to do good and explore new destinations. My background is in responsible travel, so you’ll find a lot of posts here about volunteering abroad!

  • My favorite destination: Lake Yojoa, Honduras
  • My next trip: San Jose (and a bunch of other places), Costa Rica
  • On my bucket list: Mount Everest basecamp, ice breaker ship to Antarctica, cage diving with crocodiles in South Africa
  • My favorite volunteer trip: Medical and education volunteering with Paramedics for Children in Honduras (I love this organization so much I joined the board!)

Frayed Passport is mainly community-driven and welcomes stories and advice from travelers worldwide—please click here for content submission guidelines. Due to volume, generic emails or messages that don’t include an article pitch or relevant question won’t receive a response.
