Most Memorable Travel Experience
While studying in London I booked a weekend in Venice and Rome by myself-I met the coolest people from all over the world, got around in a city where people don't speak English, drank wine from a water bottle, averted a kiss from my hostel lobby manager who was a bit buzzed off some good wine, spent the day with a guy from the Netherlands whose line was 'do you know who you look like? you look like someone I'd like to meet..." got lost in a thunderstorm in Venice with a guy from Chicago, turned 21 in an airport in Rome (spent the night there for a flight at 6 AM huddling for warmth somewhat drunk on the freezing airport floor with a Parisian guy my age a few of us lone travelors made friends with), stood shaking my head in awe at sights like the Vatican, fell in love with the country, almost lost my $900 camera...only moment the whole 5 days a smile couldn't be seen on my face.
I have a passion for travelling, for learning about cultures and history and food and a way of life outside my own. I studied in London for 4 months and had the time of my life traveling around Europe and just soaking up the culture. I just graduated from CSULB and I'm saving up for a trip around the world next summer to Europe, South America, and SouthEast if anyone would like to join just let me know!

I have a reputation for getting lost and finding my way back with a new friend or two. I'm not afraid of much-I'll do anything for adventure and am not turned off by the idea of long train rides, having to sleep on an airport floor occasionally, or life not going quite as planned; I can make something good out of any situation, especially when surrounded by the right people. I love life, my friends, and my family more than anything, but travel is my top priority right now!
