I’m a travel addict, wildlife lover, and a curious pursuer of history and culture. Driven by a passion for adventure, I joined the military as a teenager in the early 1990s and lived abroad for several years. My love of travel has only grown more potent with time. With 30 countries under my belt, I’m starting to make a dent in my “must see” travel list. Destinations often involve nature and wildlife, historical architecture and cultural experiences. The more off the beaten path, the better. Becoming a mom hasn’t slowed me down, it’s offered a new challenge – planning exotic adventures with two young kids in tow.
I’ve recently developed this website to share some of my travel stories, photos and videos to those who might be interested. While intended mostly for my family and friends, I’m excited to share these amazing places and the experiences I’ve had, with others. Travel, adventure and exploration has enriched my life, and perhaps some of these posts may serve as travel inspiration for others.

What I hope to achieve, and instill in my children through example, is to always live passionately, learn to see the world through other people’s eyes, and always strive be a better person. Travel helps me do this.
