Most Memorable Travel Experience
Probably spending the millennium in New Orleans. That was quite an experience. One I'm not likely to divulge the entirety of. :p

Though Tanzania was quite amazing and everything about that trip rocked.
I want to be a travel photog when I grow up. ;) I'm a fine art and portraiture photographer, graphic designer and a full time adult university student trying desperately to finish my degrees in business. Married to my best friend-- a fabulous guy and fantastic illustrator. Planning to take a lot more international holidays once I've finished the bloody studies.

Planning to go to the Yucatan next year and the following the UK and around. Brushing up on my Español so to hopefully not make a fool out of ourselves when we're down there. :) This summer going out west to see some of the beauty state-side. Can't wait!
