My passion in life is traveling around the world, and this includes meeting new people, learning new languages and immersing myself in new cultures!
By trade, I am a teacher - currently I work with students will additional learning support and special needs. As such, during the school year, I can typically be found in Austin, but during the summers I am off exploring :)
There are truly few things in this life that we cannot live without. However, I would have to say that people are what make the world an interesting and magical place, and without them, I fear, I would go a little bit crazy after a while. There are definitely many things that I would not like to live without, however, given the choice :)
My style of traveling varies. For long trips, I prefer to travel through countries on a budget so as to see and do as much as possible - I am in my thirties now, but I still cannot let go of that 20-something backpacker in me. I do love the occasional all-inclusive splurge on a beach, I must admit...with a good group of friends, of course.
I am highly respectful of other cultures and people, so I will do my best to learn important customs before or immediately upon my arrival to a new place. I am very social and easy to get along with - especially when it come to meeting other people who have traveled and are open-minded.
My motto is this: "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~Mark Twain
