I am a 25 year old Chicago native and I love to travel!! I studied Communication and Psychology at a Downtown Chicago University. I love to travel and enjoy the small getaways from the city life into the tranquility of the mountains, small villages, and the love of my life, the ocean. City life is nice here and there, but to retreat to exotic WARM climates is even better. I enjoy traveling on my own and I find it liberating and exciting to be independent and free to explore and encounter new people and places.
My traveling began right out of high school when I traveled to various parts of Europe, including Barcelona, London, Heidelberg, Frankfurt, Koln, Rome, and Paris. Once I began my studies at Loyola, I networked my way to longer and adventure- filled travels to Guatemala, Costa Rica, Mexico, and most recent favorites, Dominican Republic and Hawaii!
I guess you can consider myself an expat, as I currently reside in Paris. I've lived here for about 2 years and won't be relocating anytime soon. Love Chicago and Paris equally. :) I am excited to meet a new host and hope to share our experiences of abroad!
