Kaimi: To Seek
We shall not cease from exploration, And the end of all our exploring, Will be to arrive where we started, And know the place for the first time." -T.S. Elliot
I have a passion for traveling... experiencing new cultures, seeing amazing architecture and landscapes, and trying new food. I also like to learn from observing and listening to the people I meet along the way and hopefully make a few new friends.
2014 - I've been pretty quiet on Travelblog for a while...living in my childhood house, going to grad school and working 2-3 jobs at the same time didn't leave much fun or money for travel! But I graduated with my masters in Elementary Education, just accepted a 3rd grade teaching job in Arizona and moved to a small town south of Tucson. Hopefully, I'll be able to write about some fun new adventures!
2011: Back to Illinois, back to Orland Park. I've committed myself to a graduate program at St. Xavier, so it seems I'll be here for at least two years. I'm excited about the opportunities and the future I'm making for myself, but I must admit.... the wanderlust is doing its darnedest to pull me away!
2008-2010: Still in Colorado...must be a record for me, two years here!! It helps that I have a job I absolutely love, as Operations Manager of a Hawthorn Suites Hotel, with co-workers and a boss that makes it a pleasure to come to work every morning, I'm living with a fun roommate, and there's so much to see and experience here in Colorado!!
2008: Well, home from Europe, but still got that travel bug!!! I just recently moved to Colorado, and although I am BEYOND broke at the moment, you can still expect to see some ramblings from my new home state...and maybe even a couple of surprises, as well (that is, if the airlines surprise me with some super-low rates...sigh, how is miss Southwest's $29 airfares!!)
So here’s the plan: to seek and see as much of Western Europe as possible until my checking account is empty, pockets turned inside out, and my work visa has expired. I’m leaving at the end of May to move to Britain, where I have a 6 month work visa. Where I’ll work or where I’ll live is a mystery to all right now, and only my parents are worried about it!! I trust that everything will work out the way its supposed to
in whatever way that means!!
I hope everyone I love and miss, can in a small way share my experience and stay in touch through this great site!
