I won't go into my details now...that will be after I set up this blog. I am working on getting a lot of argentinian experiences first. Then I would like to go into a time machine and publish the past travels of a couple years ago...specifically california & Jamaica...but that is on the back burner. Please send me your input and let me know you are reading this. There is nothing better than getting emails from friends when there are no familiar faces for thousands of miles. Chao!
Some people call me a nomad. Others call me a biologist. I like to think of myself as part writer. The words travel is a part of my dna sequence. I might be just trying to find a place I would like to call home. But I think my home is where my heart is and its always traveling around in my upper body cavity. I can hear it beat when I get really excited or have to run for long distances. I like to make homes in all the places I travel. No matter where you are you feel the beauty of life some days and the hints of loneliness other days. I like to feel these when driving and walking around new places. I am from Florida, where the sun shines most of the year, except when there are afternoon thunderstorms in the summer and hurricanes. I lived in Boston for University
and have been throughout the Northeast. I learned snowflakes are shaped like snowflakes. I realized that I don’t like to wait for buses while wearing 5 layers of clothes and can still feel the frigid wind on my skin. I have driven ¾ of the way around the perimeter of the USA. My schooling has included studying marine biology in the Northeast USA, Jamaica, and Catalina Island California. I have lived in Jamaica for ½ of 365 days. Once I moved back home to florida for 1 ½ years and escaped during that time to Europe and my other home, Jamaica. I did get to snorkel with manatees. After exploring the areas confined within the borders of a peninsula I decided to go to California for the summer. I worked hiking and camping in the sierra nevadas looking for an endangered frog. I did find some. I slept on floors in Sacramento and Los Angeles. I found a home in Black Rock City, NV for one week a year
you can find me from now on at 230 & E or within 50 blocks before the man burns, if I‘m not there my pod will be. Here I picked up a desire to sport ilanio wear while being covered in playa dust. After the summer was over and remembered I didn’t want to live in winter
I jumped on a plane to fullfill my life’s goal of being out of the country for at least 1 month per year. I flew over the equator to Argentina for a month and encountered spring greens and the excitement of summer. My ticket had a return date for one month later. Now I am staying for three. I am trying to learn Spanish and build a house/life from fallen trees. I eat meat here after being a vegetarian for 10 years. This is where the story ends. The outline for post-February is going back to my wonderful friends and then to finish my drive around the perimeter of the United States. Hugging my family and then start a real job again. The new destination is starting my job in St. Thomas (US Virgin Islands). There I will start saving for my new goal (one year of consecutive travel and then grad school) , spend lots of time breathing under water, and eating conch fritters. The outline may get revised. I have learned I have the best friends the world can offer, I like to talk to strangers, and I get frustrated because I am only uno-lingual
and I have to change that.
NOTE: For those who are viewing my travel blog I warn you I am not paying attention to grammar. I hope to go back and edit the entries and make them fall more into proper sentence structure, but that isn't my main point of creating this blog. During the times of trying to place all my travel experiences onto a computer screen my brain moves a lot faster than my fingers can press letters. Therefore, i have to forget some specifics. I hope to have time to cut, paste, and edit the excess letters and confines of structure. Until then I hope you can understand my free thoughts. Cheers.
