hi there. i'm maria.
about me: i grew up in buffalo, new york, where i could see canada from my front porch. now i live in chicago, a beautiful, complicated city with the worst weather in america. therefore i take every opportunity to leave chicago. 7 continents and 30ish countries to date. carry-on only. i travel light because i'm lazy, and a tetris genius. a good friend once called me a "universal soul" because i get on with just about everyone. best compliment ever.
