Aside from being a coffee fanatic, book worm, fan of pomegranates, and lifelong over-achiever, I am also a world traveler.
I was inspired to begin my travels after my Grandma Betty passed away.
She was a phenomenal lady. In her lifetime she met Fidel Castro in Cuba, was an art teacher for the blind, and traveled to 57 different countries. But, what inspires me the most about Grandma Betty is that I have never met a more optimistic person then her in my entire life. She saw the beauty in everything and never stopped smiling.
After her passing I realized that I needed to live a life achieving my dreams versus following the same path as everyone else.
A couple months after her death I started planning my first trip around the world funded through a hodge-podge of scholarships, travel grants, and internships.
I spent 2013 on 5 different continents and am still longing to travel more.
This blog is the story of my adventures from my first adventures in 2013. I hope you join me for the journey!
