For the past three years I have primarily been able to travel through school. However, I am about to graduate from university! This means a lot more travel that does not have an educational side to it. While I love to learn, I am a little tired of mandatory class attendance while on the other side of the world.
My specialty is over-planning and then ditching everything as soon as I arrive. After three years of travel I have finally learned how to pack light (see the incident involving 6 flights of stairs in Paris). I like spending longer periods of time in each place I visit, I am not a “check it off the list” person.
My preferences involve travel via train whenever possible, extended solo travel, afternoon tea in every city I visit, and off-the-beaten-path experiences.
My spirit animal is the mountain goat, hopping off away from the crowds and finding my own space even in tourist locations. I discovered this ability in Wales.
What else? I am a lover of tea, and typically return home with at least one bag from every country I visit. As an aspiring linguist, it’s important for me to learn some of the language of each country I visit, and I’ll share those tips with you.
