Where I've Been
I am fortunate that from a young age, my parents instilled in my sister and me the importance of traveling. They always valued experiences over materials, which has shaped me into the person that I am today. Another influencing factor was the study abroad program I did in university called Semester at Sea, where I lived on a ship and circumnavigated the globe, starting in the Bahamas and ending in my hometown of San Diego.
Since then I have embarked on two solo backpacking adventures. My first solo travel was 15 months through Southeast Asia and Australia. I just finished up my second trip, traveling through South America for 9 months.
So far in my 29 years, I have been to 37 countries. See below for more information.
