Travels

I love to travel.

(c) myself, 2010

If I could live somewhere new every few years, I would do it, in an instant.  Here’s hoping I can!

Also, if you’re traveling (cheaply!) and want any recommendations for restaurants or hostels, get in touch!

I was given the chance to be a speaker at the World Youth Summit (sponsored by IAVE) in November of 2011 on behalf of the American Red Cross. I traveled to Baranquilla and Cartagena, Colombia.

  • Monumental Moments
    • Helping a village incapacitated by flood for nearly a year
    • Doing Zumba with the man himself (Beto Perez) in a carnival for this ^^^ village
    • Knowing absolutely no Spanish, and yet bonding with people over the love of volunteerism
    • Meeting Red Cross representatives from many South and Central American societies (who, let me tell you, have incredible youth programs)
