I love to travel! In fact, there is nothing I enjoy more, especially internationally. I have traveled to nearly 50 countries and about half as many States. The around the world trek Catrell, Morgan, Zach, Harrison and I embarked on in 2008 was enlightening in so many ways. Especially when it came to the eating habits of our fellow global-citizens, and how other countries deal with healthcare. We learned so much that the experience inspired Catrell and me to start a website devoted to sharing what we observed and experienced during our 61,000 mile odyssey.
My love of travel began when my family hosted a German exchange student while I was in high school. After visiting our exchange student in Germany, I was hooked on travel. In fact, after high school I became a Certified Travel Agent, and wanted to help others see the world even if I could not at the time. Since my first trip to Germany, I have visited more than 30 countries and nearly half our States. l also have developed a passion for optimum health. As proof of my passion for living a healthy lifestyle, I am pursuing a degree in Holistic Health in order to expand my knowledge and help educate others as well.
