Meet Courtney Kovacs



Welcome to A Lost Ginger!

I started this blog to share my travel experiences in hopes to inspire and possibly help people (like you!) to explore this huuge and amazing world we live in. I’m also working on sharing more about my faith and living a more balanced and intentional life.


I first started my adventures at 16 years old when I went on a 4 week student ambassador trip with People to People through France, Italy, Austria, and Switzerland. Ever since that first trip, I have deeply fallen in love with the world around us. I love learning about cultures, eating delicious foods, and meeting awesome people along the way. 


I’ve scuba-dived with sea turtles in Dubai, kissed the Blarney Stone to get the “gift of gab”, studied Spanish for a month in the south of Spain, and slept in a jeep for a week while beach hopping the southern coast of the USA. 



Some other fast facts about me:

  • I live in the great state of Texas
  • I graduated from LSU in 2019 with a degree in International Relations 
  • I typically drink 3 cups of coffee a day
  • I have the cutest little (well not so little) chihuahua named Piper and a pitbull-mix puppy named Reptar! 




  • I worked for two years as an AmeriCorps member with City Year
  • I’m an INFP
  • I have traveled to 10 countries – with many more on my list!

This blog serves as a catch-all for my thoughts and tips surrounding travel, faith and life. With the world the way it is right now, I was kind of finding myself in a rut. I’m currently trying to find my rhythm again and trying to live a life that is full of joy and love and adventure. So I am taking up old hobbies (like blogging!) and trying some new ones (like DIY projects). All the while praising God for this life! 

So if you like adventure, or Jesus, or just red heads who drink too much coffee, why not stick around for a while? Follow me on the socials, and sign up for the monthly newsletter down below! Let me know what content you’re searching for and maybe I can help you out. We’re all just trying to find ourselves so why not do it together?
