I am a travel addict with a wanderlust limited only by time and money. I was born and raised in America, lived in Paris for a bit, and now live in London.
I’ve eaten my best and strangest meals abroad; I’ve slept in hostels, buses, ships, and planes; I’ve floated in a mud volcano, kayaked in a bioluminescent bay, bargained in a silk market, cheered on the matadors in a bullfight, hiked the Great Wall of China, flown to an almost deserted island, toured a slum during a major drug bust, and seen poverty that every day motivates me to work hard to change the world.
I follow the advice of my 9th-grade Global Studies teacher, who said: “Everyone should travel. You learn by traveling.” While I do learn about the history, art, architecture, culture, and language of the places I visit, I find that in general I end up learning more about myself and about the world.
