why I started this particular blog:

a few years ago, a dear friend of mine passed away at the young age of 30. beth was someone who loved life and living so much that it was heartbreaking to watch her die. there was still so much she wanted to do with her life that she never had the opportunity to do. i vowed never to forget all the opportunities she was going to miss out on so it became my personal mission to live MY life like beth did – without fear. stupid mistakes, highs, lows, good luck, bad luck – it’s all ingredients for a life worth living.

why I travel:

i travel because it helps me to see beyond my own preconceived notions. i travel because it teaches me patience, appreciation, and acceptance.  i travel because i can.
