I'm a Doctoral Candidate in American Studies, living on the Central Coast of California. I grew up in the suburbs of Maryland, went to grad school in Washington state, and relocated to Cali this summer. I love travel, languages, great books, music, art, ethnic cuisine and kindness.
5 things I can't live without? My husband/best friend, music, pulp-free OJ, books and sunshine.
Something quirky? I always keep my passport and a gold card on my person. Just in case.
My style of travel is off the beaten path. I love luxury, but I travel to experience something new. I try to learn as much as possible about the culture that I'm visiting before I arrive and while I'm there.
