Although she is no longer with us, her legacy lives on through her blog, which continues to inspire travelers around the world. Rachel's unique blend of glamorous and bohemian travel insights has left an indelible mark on the travel community.

Early life and education

Rachel Jones was born and raised in a small town in Ohio, growing up in a close-knit family of four. Her father worked at General Motors[2], and her mother was a special education aide. She had an older brother, Travis, with whom she shared a strong bond. Rachel attended Ohio State University (OSU), where she pursued a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN), graduating with honors. During her college years, Rachel's love for travel blossomed, leading her to spend summers backpacking through Europe and winters exploring Africa.


After graduating, Rachel moved to Charlotte, North Carolina, where she worked in cardiac care for 11 months. However, the "real world" did not align with her adventurous spirit, and she soon set off for a solo three-month trip to India. This journey changed her life, as she met the love of her life in a bar in southern India. Rachel briefly returned to the U.S. to work as a travel nurse in Seattle but quickly realized her heart belonged on the road. She embraced a nomadic lifestyle, living out of her backpack, savoring street food, and enjoying budget-friendly massages.

Rachel's travel blog, "Hippie in Heels[3]," became a platform where she shared her experiences and travel tips, blending her love for luxury with her bohemian spirit. She was known for finding charming boutique hotels, bargaining at local markets, and sharing her adventures in a relatable and humorous way. Rachel's writing was also featured on Bravo TV's travel section, where she contributed her insights on various destinations.

Personal life

Rachel's personal life was a tapestry of close friendships, family bonds, and a love for her pets. Despite her wanderlust, she maintained strong connections with her childhood friends and family. She was particularly close to her brother, Travis, and often returned home to Ohio during Goa's monsoon season to spend time with her loved ones.

Rachel was a self-proclaimed "hippie barbie," a blend of glamorous and bohemian styles. She enjoyed dressing up for nights out just as much as lounging on a beach, embracing both aspects of her personality. Rachel was also a foodie[4], indulging in local cuisines during her travels. Her love for fashion, jewelry, coffee, reading, and TV shows like "The Real Housewives" added to her multifaceted personality.
