I am a 20something vagabond hailing from Virginia.
My filipina mother was a travel agent. My father is English. I have been traveling for as long as I can remember, but I only learned to appreciate it once I was in college. After so many years of endless security lines and tiny cans of soda, it never dawned on me that I am lucky to have all of these stamps in my passport; I am lucky to have a passport, period.
Travel has made me who I am. It’s in my blood. Now I appreciate every trip and journey as something life-changing, eye-opening, and something precious — something to be treasured and cherished forever.
My insatiable wanderlust has gotten kind of out-of-hand. Reintegration feels too taxing after some trips. This is where the blog steps in. I am going to channel my escapism into something good by re-telling where I have been, where I am going, and everything I have learned in between. I want to share everything I have seen, smelled, tasted, and heard. I want you to meet who I met and hear what they have to say. If I ever seem like I’m bragging, I don’t mean to. I just get so excited! I want to share everything with you.
And so… Akwaaba! Bienvenue. Benvenuto. Bienvenido. Mabuhay. Welcome… let the journey begin.
