Growing up as a military brat, I have traveled all my life. I know, like most travelers, that there is nothing to fear about being in a strange place. Being used to foreign countries, I just get on airplanes and figure it out from there. I know so many people who have done so much more travel than me. ... but this is my story and it's not so bad.
I traveled through Africa in 2003. Including Tanzania, Kenya, and Nigeria.
I traveled to Guatemala and Honduras in 2005.
From 2007 to 2009 I moved to Seoul, Korea from Austin, Texas to teach in Korean schools. I needed a change in my life and this certainly fit the bill. Life was good... free apartment in a great part of Seoul, and I was able save money while living in the city. I traveled around on weekends and holidays to see the country when I could and find out what's there.
I moved to Moldova for a year in 2009 -2010. I'm still working on getting those blogs written.
I volunteered in a Montessori school in Guatemala City every summer since 2012.
I'm currently back in Guatemala City this summer and I've raised funds to bring badly needed classroom materials and teach the teachers for the school I volunteered for the past three years.
