This year (2013) marked the 15th anniversary of my first passport and trip outside of the United States of America.
I’ve had the travel bug since early on in my life. When I was young, my grandma and grandpa would travel all over the world. My grandma loved to take pictures and create albums. This was long before everything went digital. Each album must have taken her hours if not days to put together. I was at my grandparents’ house a lot when I was young and loved to always look through the albums. I was fascinated with all the unique characteristics of each place. Plus, who gets to see their grandma riding a camel or their grandpa with a snake on his shoulders?! All I new is there was so much out there for me to see and experience. I couldn’t wait.
I have been very fortunate to have had so many travel opportunities through my education. In 2007, I met the man that would become not just my husband and best friend but one of the best travel companions who shares my love for exploring the world. As he and I now live in Italy, we are hoping that this will open the door for many additional adventures.
