18 Countries and Counting...

People always ask if I am traveling alone? aren’t you scared? What if something goes wrong?

My response: “Yes, I’m alone. What should I be scared of? What if nothing goes wrong?”

My first travel experience was in 2012. Singapore. It was the perfect place to get my feet wet. Very Asian, yet modern and western enough to not totally put me into an uncomfortable shock. Since then, I’ve been bitten my the travel bug and found soulful comfort in traveling.

I thrive in being in new places. The sights, the sounds, the people all awaken my senses that is inexplicable. There is a laser like focus and oneness with the universe when I travel. The unknown does not scare me. Similar to the vast ocean when I scuba dive, there is a magnetic energy that draws me into the depths of the sea, rhythms of life, and new experiences.

What I do know

Each country brought me to a new level of thinking and being. Although being born and raised in the U.S., international travel exposes me to new cultures, senses, and rhythms of life. There’s excitement, thrills, and so much more to awaken that instinctive human nature: curiosity.

Here’s to endless travels and next level successes in 2019.

Never stop learning. Give into curiosity.
