We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us. -unknown

I'm going to see the whole world!
When asked what I wanted to do when I grew up, I responded with these words. Little did I know that they would forever come to pass. I've always felt at home on an airplane or in a new place--whether in my country or another one. I've forever had a heart to explore and to see new things and meet new people. My time as a child consisted of "pretend" playing flight attendant and teaching geography. One Christmas, I asked for a globe and an atlas. Night after night, I would close my eyes and move my finger along the globe. Wherever it landed, I decided that's where I would travel.
And my desire to inspire others to travel continues.
6 continents, 39 countries (living in 4 of them), and 30+ years later, wanderlust and adventure are still the beat of my heart. Travel entices me. It challenges me, develops me, and reminds me that there is a need to encourage others to catch the trade winds in their sails.
So, I invite you to join me on my past adventures, the present ones, and the travels yet to come.
Carpe diem, my friend.
