There are many more “normal” things that I could tell you about myself, but the really important thing here is that I love to travel. I will (and want to) go anywhere and everywhere. This said, I’m not a fancy hotels and restaurants kind of traveler. I prefer to delve into the culture, to reside among the people of the county, to learn pieces of the language, to eat at the hole-in-the-wall places that locals eat at or to sit in a park and people watch. My goal coming away from a country is that I can say that at least part of who I am was changed by the culture that I spent time in, that I learned a lesson from the people of that country.
Most recently, I have relocated from Chicago to Indonesia. I’m living here as an English and ESL teacher at an International School, and doing my best to maximize my weekends, exploring Indonesia and the rest of Southeast Asia.
Here, I hope I can share with you some of the rich culture, the fascinating people, the beautiful pictures, the inspiring lessons, and the endless stories that one gains from traveling.
