For as long as I can remember I’ve always had this overwhelming desire to see the world. It was always my dream to travel “someday”. In my sorority, new members would interview current members as a way to get to know everyone. One question that was asked of everyone was what their goals were. Traveling made my list every time but it wasn’t until almost 2 years after I graduated college that I finally left the country for the first time. That trip sparked a passion I never really knew I had for planning trips and confirmed one I’d always felt: seeing the world.

Since that trip in 2015, I determined a new goal for myself: to travel to at least one new country every year. So far I’ve made good on that promise to myself and I have no intention of revising it anytime soon.
