I grew up in Orange County, went to school in Los Angeles, and studied abroad in London. After school, I stayed in Los Angeles, working in politics, government, and law.
I got my first passport as a baby and traveled overseas several times over the years. However, it was during my study abroad term when I really started traveling independently. From London I went all over the UK, The Netherlands, Belgium, France, Greece, Ireland, Czech Republic, Spain, Portugal, and Italy.
I have been to 36 countries on 6 continents so far. I love a few, like nearly all, and need to revisit the others to see if I really don’t like them. I’m looking at you, Belgium!
I start my first solo RTW in November 2010. First stop, Samoa.
