A thirty-one year old with extreme wanderlust and a passion for traveling and seeing the world. I love learning about new cultures, trying new food and drinks, going out of my comfort zone as often as possible, and experiencing all life has to offer.
It all started when I was younger and my first-generation American parents pushed for me and my brother, Thomas, to appreciate, not only our roots, but the sacrifices our grandparents made for our family in coming to America.
We explored many places up and down the East Coast of The United States, including historical sites, such as Williamsburg, VA., Charleston, SC., and Salem, MA., and at young ages, we were able to gain an understanding of the country we were born in and the history that it was built upon.
After taking our first family trip overseas in November 2001, to visit family in Ireland, I knew that I wanted to see the rest of the world. So, I continued to take any chance I could to travel.
This got even easier after I graduated college and became a teacher. With the generous breaks teachers are given, I have been able to take advantage of them to travel. In the past eight years, I have visited Mexico, Bermuda, The Bahamas, Ireland, Scotland, England, The Netherlands, Belgium, New Zealand, Fiji, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Namibia, South Africa, Egypt and Chile, and I take any and all opportunities to travel the world.
Recently, I quit my teaching job to go after my dreams of seeing the world and writing. I hope to one day visit every country in the world, meeting new people and experiencing new cultures along the journey. Travel has shaped me into the person I am today, and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. So far, I’ve been to 37 states and 28 countries.
I just got back from seven weeks in India and planning out my next adventure!
