About Me and My Love for Traveling

My love for traveling in Africa
In the Serengeti of Africa

My love for traveling started at a young age. Maybe it’s because I moved a lot as a child and was never in one place for too long. Or maybe it’s because I went to college far from home and by default traveled to and from college every summer, stopping along the way to visit National Parks.

Whatever the reason, I became a traveler. My first international (if you can call it that) trip was to Cancun, Mexico, for spring break in college. Shortly after I graduated college, I started dating a man from England, and so my first authentic international trip was with him to Britain, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland. We continued my love for traveling by purchasing a 1968 VW Camper Bus. We would take trips with our two dogs to Utah, Colorado, Nevada, and Northern California. I guess you could say we were hippy-ish.

Later when I returned home (Maryland), my love for traveling continued as I yearned to go back west. Maryland was full of traffic, cars, and pavement. I wanted peace. I wanted to go “home” to Colorado. I didn’t travel for quite a while until I got a “real” job and became independent.

I always had a love for animals and as such, most of my trips revolve around seeing unique wildlife and experiencing calmness. My trips do not involve lengthy visits to cities to see architecture or fancy churches. I want to get out of the city and into the peace. I want to enjoy nature.

If these experiences click with you, please explore my site and learn about how my love for traveling has taken me to Costa Rica, Panama, Africa, Peru, Mexico, Ecuador, and the USA. Who knows? Maybe you will be motivated to travel to a place you had not thought of before?

Last year my travel agent got out of the business after 20+ years due to her frustration with customer service. I asked… Read more
