Home Is Where The Heart Is
I’ve spent my entire life traveling — my parents instilled in me from an early age that seeing other cultures and destinations was a way to broaden my experiences and develop an understanding for other people, and now that I’m older, I completely understand and actually am grateful to my parents for bringing me up in such an environment.
For 10 years I’ve been writing about my travels around the world. At first, writing was more like a hobby until I had my friends and family tell me that I should pursue it more seriously. Taking their advice, I decided to create my own travel blog to highlight the adventures of my international excursions. My philosophy when traveling is to visit a destination without an itinerary — taking it slow allows me to thoroughly enjoy the destination fully and soaking in my surroundings without getting too busy. I’ve been published in numerous travel magazines and hope to explore many more countries in the coming years!
