Why I Travel

Travel is about opening up to new experiences, connecting with people from other cultures, and seeing a world of fresh possibility each day.

I love making up my day according to the route and activities that are calling me.

Travel makes me come alive!

Why Read this Blog?

As I write this, I am halfway through my intentional break – a six month travel experiment.

I am very happy! And proud of myself that I stopped making excuses, and actually – finally – gave myself permission to “stop work” and see the world!

So far I have savored treks through 15 countries, rolled through many surprises and adventures, surmounted a few challenges, and connected with hundreds of wonderful people, amazing sights, and delicious food never tasted before.

And I’d love for you to follow along!
