Santorini, Greece

Hey there!

A native New Yorker, born & raised, I caught the travel bug in my preteens after reading a book in which the protaganist went to boarding school in Switzerland. Though I can't recall the title, the experiences she had exploring new terrain and cultures, and meeting all sorts of people left a lasting impression. 

Fast forward a decade or so. The summer after college (2013), I travelled beyond the US for the first time in 12 years, and alone for the first time ever. I spent 6 weeks studying in Perugia, Italy, and a week backpacking in Greece. Since then, I've been hooked.

A year and a half later, I rounded out 2014 with a month and a half abroad, hitting up Milan, Berlin, Prague, Tokyo, Jejudo, and Seoul. 

For me, traveling isn't about the resorts and the luxuries of five-star hotels. It's about the luxury of time. It's about exploring new territory, and in doing so, new parts of your Self. Traveling is about recognizing that the world is a vast and beautiful place, and that that which you are used to isn't necessarily the only or the "right" way of doing things.

Thanks for visiting my page. Looking forward to exchanging stories!
