One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Travel. All of it. All the aspects. I don't underestimate how lucky I am to get to have this experience. A lot of people cannot.
Even though we have a long way to go, we've come a long way that young women can go traipsing around the world alone and not have to answer to anyone or have their femininity called into question. Travel makes me a better, more compassionate human being. I'm grateful for this every day.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have a decent knowledge of the outdoors and love suggesting hikes to people.
