About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Surviving the Winter

ABOUT ME

I've just moved to Warsaw for grad school. I'm originally from Tampa, Florida.

The past two years have been spent doing a lot of aimless travel and meeting the most wonderful people in the world. I feel like I have finally created the lifestyle I've always wanted, and now I can't imagine anything else.

I am primarily a solo traveler, but I don't believe that anyone is ever alone while traveling.

I will most likely be spending my summer 2015 in Southern Africa (Botswana, South Africa, Namibia). I would love to meet people who have been or are from there.

PHILOSOPHY

"Difference is normal"- advice given by my Intercultural Communication professor my last semester of undergrad.

coffee, culture, photography, food, shopping, language, hiking

Music, Movies & Books

My Spotify radio is usually set to anything 90s.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I've done quite a few things. I lived in Uganda for a while, so that's pretty interesting.

Teach, Learn, Share

I like exchanging travel stories and expat stories. I also always enjoy a good history discussion.

It would be really cool if someone could teach me some simple Tswana phrases, but I think finding a native speaker of that in Warsaw might be a challenge!
