If you can’t tell, I love to travel. Slowly, so that each place I visit becomes a part of me. I like strong coffee, the great outdoors, and a delicious meal. I’m extremely social, but cherish my alone time.
I’ve spent time in Israel, Poland, Hungary, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Mexico, Argentina, Uruguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Italy and Costa Rica.
I’ve lived in California, Illinois, Wisconsin, Texas, Spain and Argentina.
On this blog you’ll find stories and resources about how to get the most out of your travels. I believe each traveler wants to have meaningful experiences that leave a mark, but that can be hard to do when you’re curating your own trip. I’ve created this blog to help you do this by sharing my own adventure.
On December 1st, I’ll be heading out to Southeast Asia for five months. I know, I know – it’s been done to death. But, I’m going at it from a different perspective. I want an educational, experiential learning opportunity – and I’m going to, for the first time, craft it for myself.
That means no organized programs and no group tours by international companies. I’ve never traveled alone for this long (the longest was about two days), with a backpack, without a home base, not speaking the language (I typically go to Spanish speaking countries and I speak Spanish).
