I am a 27 year old Florida native with a love of traveling, good food, good reads, and coffee. To take this trip, I left my job working in the foundation of a nonprofit for children with special needs. I am currently finishing up my Master’s degree in Public Administration at Florida International University and am planning to graduate in December. I am looking forward to celebrating somewhere in Africa!

I have dreamt about an around the world adventure since my first international travel experience to London in 2005. I was bitten by the travel bug and have been addicted ever since. After London, I ventured to France, Italy, South Africa, South Korea, Mexico, Barbados, and Costa Rica. I am passionate about travel; I want to see and do it all!

I am most looking forward to the wildlife experiences we will have on this adventure. There is so much I have never seen and I can’t wait to get up close and personal! I also enjoy food and look forward to sampling cuisines from around the world.

I am very excited to take this journey with my ultimate partner Nick, who made this dream a reality. I am going to miss our dog Indy, our cats Kahlua and Sundance, and our family and friends more than words can express, but we hope you all will keep in touch with us through our blog and join us in the ups and downs, and the incredible adventure ahead of us.


“To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.”- Bill Bryson
