The world is a rainbow of colors and I want to paint with them all.
My travel experiences started before I was three and could fly for free. My dad would prop me on his briefcase, tell me to hang on like a monkey and swing me down the corridors of the airport on our way to the departure gate. Since then, I’ve seen much of the United States by car and parts of the rest of the world by air and boat. I’ve served as a Peace Corps volunteer in rural Kenya, snorkeled the Great Barrier Reef, white water rafted the Nile River, watched the sunset from Jeju Island and hiked the Inca Trail, but there is so much more of the world left for me to explore.
I currently live in Las Vegas but have an affinity for the great outdoors. I’m in love with our National Parks and enjoy the simple pleasures of walking, hiking, biking, exploring and venturing in to most things adventure-related.
I created this blog to share my stories and travel tips … my hope is that I inspire you to learn, love and live your own travel dreams.
My work has been published in more than 40 print and online publications including Caribbean Travel & Life, American Way, WestJet’s up!, Pathfinders Travel, TravelSmart, National Geographic Traveler Intelligent Travel Blog, BootsnAll and Matador Network as well as dozens of other travel blogs. I’ve written on many topics including travel, athletics, environmental issues, pets, college life, business, and arts and culture. I am also the managing editor for Journey Beyond Travel, an online travel guide to Morocco; the community news editor for the National Peace Corps Association; and creator of The 52 Letters Project.
I have been interviewed for several blogs, books and radio shows. In addition, I frequently speak at conferences on travel, travel writing and working as a writer.

My husband and favorite travel partner, Cory, and I take the majority of the photos on this travel blog. If photos come from another source, it will be noted in that particular post.
