Growing up, I constantly heard stories about the Peace Corps in Paraguay from family friends; I always begged for more and more stories. Stories I so badly wanted to be my own. My family didn’t even have passports. But I knew what I wanted, and that was to make stories of my own.
I craved the world I didn’t yet know, but could feel in my bones I would one day be a part of. The first time I went abroad, I was 20; a semester in Seville, Spain. After the program ended, I traveled alone throughout western Europe. I came home that summer with travel further cemented in my mind, and waited for graduation day to finally begin my journey.
Since then, I have taught English in South Korea, Brazil, and Argentina. I studied film in the Philippines and graphic design in Italy. I sold fruit at a roadside stand in New Zealand, and poured pints at pubs in Australia. I trained across Russia on the Transsiberrean, and walked across Spain on the Camino de Santiago. I studied yoga and ayurveda at an ashram in India. I speak Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, and Korean.
With this blog, I hope to show you some of my own travel adventures, as well as help you get started on your own!
