My Story

Hello friends and welcome to my page!

imageI can’t exactly pinpoint the time in which I was nipped with the travel bug. Maybe it was when I was 6 years old, when my grandma presented me with a coin purse from China that she bartered to get for me. Maybe it was when I was 8 years old and took my first trip to Mexico. Maybe it was when I was 9 and reveled in my Uncle’s stories about climbing Mount Everest. Or, maybe it was when my grandparents would regale their tales about moving from Ireland to Chicago when they were only 18. No matter what, I have always been inspired by other people’s stories.

Now, in my early 20s, I have set out to create a story of my own. A Chicago native, I had the pleasure of calling Spain my home for two years, teaching English as a second language. I first came to Spain in the summer of 2013 when I studied abroad in Bilbao. Soon after I graduated university, I headed straight back to Spain and taught in the cities of Burgos and Madrid.

This year, I have packed up my bags once again and can call Thailand my new home.

This blog is a collection of narratives from my 2+ years of adventures (or misadventures…), along with some advice that I can offer in between. It is not in chronological order. Since I already have a lifetime of stories to tell and advice to offer, I will be hopping back and forth quite a bit!

So. I hope this blog makes you laugh, inspires you, encourages you. Follow me, as I tell and “find” my story.
