I work as a counselor in higher ed, so I really get to enjoy my summers! I have been lucky enough to do some great international travel, but recently am keeping closer to home, exploring all my own southeastern US backyard has to offer. I prepare for a trip by doing lots of research, reading about all the best places to visit and eat, but once I get there I mostly want to find a fun neighborhood and wander around. Favorite travel things include local food, striking natural beauty, and sunshine.
