As most of my friends and family know, traveling is one of the things that I enjoy most in this world. I long to see new places and have new experiences. Unfamiliar foods, sights and sounds have never intimidated me– they push me to dive head-first into a new culture. Exploration and experimentation are the two main sources of my creative energy. The fuel for my fire. I set a personal goal for myself some years back to travel to at least one new place each year. I haven’t let myself down since!
I am a super fortunate young lady that has already seen much of the world very few others my age have. I am a wanderer; I can’t sit still for too long. I love home, there’s no other place like it, but the entire world falls away the second I leave. Every once in a while, I just need an escape… even if only for a few hours. A huge part of my character and intellectual development should be rightfully due to my personal treks. I’ve learned so much about myself in so little time. I’ve become a more passionate, empathetic, open-minded person. I couldn’t be more grateful for the hand that I am playing with. I don’t need to fold. By some person’s definition of success, I am not quite there, but by my own, I’ve already got more than I could have dreamed.
Encouraging people to seek out each and every adventure they yearn for is kind of my thing. I want everyone to live the life that they want and I want to be able to do whatever I can to make that possible… even if only by cheering them on. I’m not a financially rich woman, or I would happily send people on luxury vacations every week, but with some help, I am going to be able to give away a free, one night stay for two at a five star hotel in Virginia Beach. This could be a romantic trip for couples, a best friend, or even a special mother-daughter date– Whatever you want! Just, get out of the house for a night. It’s good for the soul.
