About Me


Work and travel


Traveling has always and will always be in my blood. That's from the way I was raised being herded off to different parts of the globe. I like being happy, I don't get mad too easily or too often. I wish I could travel more often because I know that even if one traveled ALL the time, it would still be impossible to see all the places in this world. I like stability but wish to be more carefree where I could just drop everything and take off for a year or maybe longer.


Traveling, listening to music, shopping, fashion, reading, history, philosophy, anthropology, political science, geography, geology, jewelry.
