Hi, I’m Becky Pokora.
Eleven years ago, I found myself running around Europe, checking off “bucket list” attractions and visiting museums I didn’t care about.
All because a guidebook told me to.
Somewhere between a statue of a naked boy peeing and the thirteenth cathedral of the trip, a lightbulb went off. All my life, I’ve connected with hands-on experiences better than passively looking at something. I needed to be more active, connect with the culture, and try something for myself. Copycat itineraries and trips by obligation aren’t for me.
When it comes to travel, I believe interactive experiences are the most memorable and meaningful. Now, I try to incorporate sightDOING on every trip I take.
I’m Not All About Travel
When I’m not traveling, you’ll find me at home in Buffalo, NY with my husband Mike and my dog Polska. My time alternates between freelance writing about travel rewards and helping small businesses produce content for their own websites — no two days are ever the same!
I love cooking, hiking, and yoga, so you’ll find them woven into my free time. Guilty pleasures include rainy day marathons of Shark Tank and dinner out with my husband.

This blog details my quest of interactive travel around the globe. I’m ready to get out and explore, and am looking forward to sharing tips and adventures with you!
