You could say I got the "travel bug" pretty early on. As a wee little freshman in highschool, I first travelled to the exotic location of Costa Rica. As a teen, I find that people become so consumed in their day to day inconveniences and miniscule problems. I started exploring the world as a way to explore myself and figure out who I was, and who I wanted to become. I wanted to appreciate culture and to explore what many of my peers were too ignorant to appreciate. I knew that there was so much more away from my small town in Wisconsin---and I wanted to see it. I didn't want to look at instagram pictures of beautiful places, but wanted to feel them myself. Soon enough, I left for my first solo journey to Spain.
I hope that this blog inspires other young travellers to explore that same yearning that they have to see the world. And that it is possible to do anything if you work hard enough for it.
