Welcome to The Quirky Pineapple! I’m not too sure how you found me, but I’m so happy that you did! This little space on the interwebs was created to share a lot about my travels, life abroad, and things that inspire me (hoping to inspire you, too)! On this blog you can find a lot of adventures about traveling, things that inspire me, people that inspire me, and some of the messy in-betweens about being a post college graduate trying to figure out what the heck it is I’m doing. I believe in creating a space for inspiration and growth; and love to share and collaborate with others. The Quirky Pineapple was made to inspire you to step outside of your comfort zone, chase your dreams, and learn to love, accept, and relish in all of the awkward happenings and spontaneous adventures that traveling and life bring you. I hope that this blog always leaves you feeling inspired and excited to chase the adventure!

More About The Adventure Enthusiast

Hi! My name is Cassandra and welcome to The Quirky Pineapple Lifestyle & Travel Blog. I’m currently hopping between Virginia/Washington D.C. area and Spain; calling both my homes. I am a graduate from James Madison University, who’s ultimate goal is to stay away from a 9-5 desk job for as long as possible! After graduating from JMU (Go Dukes!) with a degree in Hospitality Management, I picked up my things and hopped over to Toledo, Spain to teach English for one year. I fell in love with Spain, Spanish, a Spaniard, and decided to renew my contract. Now, I’m located in Córdoba, Andalucía where I’m continuing to teach English and create my own unconventional lifestyle.

I am invested in taking down the patriarchy, creating equal opportunities, and taking care of people. I have a fierce passion for traveling and learning about different cultures/languages, I love to dance, and I love bright colors, patterns, and florals. When I’m not blogging, I can usually be found with my boyfriend on the road to discover a new area in Spain. He can be found mentioned in a few of my blog posts! I have to say that adventure and a strong gut feeling are what guide my life, and I can’t say that it’s been all too terrible! Grab yourself a plane ticket, or keep up with this blog, and join me on the adventure! (:

    Hey Kelsey! Thanks so much, that means a lot to me! (: Haha I’ve tried to avoid the 9-5 office life, but I figured having a year or two working in corporate America can’t be too terrible since it will give me experience. And I’ll have a steadier income to do what I want! Can’t wait to check out your adventures and blog, as well!

  • Love your style Cassandra! I’m also avoiding the 9-5 like the plague and stumbling through the years where I’m supposed to be acting like an adult. Following your blog for sure as I’m also interested in teaching English abroad (because what else do you do with an English degree?). Can’t wait to read more about your adventures.

  • Hey I enjoy reading your blog so much I nominated you for a Liebster Award!
