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 around the world as a digital nomad – I spent this past winter living in Portugal, and then Central and South America for the spring. 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: Edinburgh, Scotland
  • On my bucket list: Mount Everest basecamp, ice breaker ship to Antarctica
  • 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. (Generic emails or messages that don’t include an article pitch or relevant question won’t receive a response.)
