About Me


To see the rest of the world...and revisit the parts I have already seen and love!!


In my "younger years" I lived all over the world and have now discovered that I have stayed in one place for about as long as I can possibly stand it!

I am a dual EU/US citizen and I hope those extra papers are gonna take me far and wide! The beauty of travel cannot be described in such a short space and I can't wait to get back out there!

I have always worked with languages and most of that time in education and I am a huge language nerd. I love speaking with people from all over the world about their languages and their lives.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love German, French and Czech films, almost any film in those languages. And probably a lot more in other languages as well!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Speeding through Saigon on a scooter at midnight; horseback riding in the beautiful Czech mountains; going to Paris three times; walking the Charles Bridge in Prague at midnight on Christmas Eve in the snow; seeing Cartagena, Colombia, the most romantic place in the world.

Also having my appendix removed in a Prague hospital and living to tell the tale is also amazing;)
