I was born and raised in a small town called Normal in Illinois, but I traveled a lot growing up. This early exposure to other cultures and parts of the world made me curious about other places and people. I was so interested in why people behave the way they do based on their location, I earned a minor in human geography at the University of Illinois. After graduating from the U of I, I moved to New York City where I was exposed to MANY more people and cultures. While NYC has everything and everyone, it’s not the same as experiencing those things in their authentic setting. With that in mind, my husband and I have decided to pack up and travel, with plans to experience much more of the US and abroad. We hope to share some of our experiences through this blog!
