I fell in love with traveling a little at a time over the past decade, and then all at once during my 3-month trip in 2017. Now, I help people discover new places around the world and I love it! This job combines my high level of organizational skills with my intense wanderlust. Need assistance planning an adventure? Let me know!
If I may, a brief personal story: in April of 2017, my husband and I stopped in Venice for three days. We wandered around, took pictures of canals, ate gelato...all the typical things. BUT, one of the days we were on the island happened to be the University of Venice's graduation ceremony. Piazza San Marco was packed full of graduates. As we walked around the outside of the square, it became clear that the graduation ceremony was coming to an end. We turned to look just as hundreds of graduates threw their caps into the air in a 1200-year-old Venetian plaza. I couldn't help it, I started crying. What a scene to witness!
It is moments like these that remind me why travel is valuable. Traveling connects us to other people and our planet in ways we can't get by staying home.
