A little about me:

I am a former Miami travel magazine editor, who ditched the office for the world! Well... that's the short & sweet & neat version.

The real version is a little more imperfect, a lot more scary & actually, I became a solo traveler by accident. But like most unplanned things, it has been the most empowering, fulfilling thing everrrrr!

Click to link below to journey with me: From how I had "it all", to then losing some of it & giving up the rest, to then embarking on an unexpected journey where I eventually found myself. Travel really is the quickest therapy!

To travel is worth any cost or sacrifice.
