hi everybody! welcome to grace lands abroad!
When I was 19, I backpacked alone around Western Europe and knew I was destined for a life of traveling. Now, three years and 18 countries later, I’ve started my journey as a full-time traveler (woohoo).
When I started traveling, my first thought was, “when traveling, do as the travelers do.” So, I decided to start this blog. How original, amiright? But, since I have other interests in addition to traveling, I thought I’d mix it up a bit.
Besides traveling, some of my favorite things are 70’s music, 80’s movies, donuts, french fries, ice cream, and books about strong women. I am also slightly obsessed with llamas and their inclinations toward spitting.
So, along with travel tips and stories, prepare to also read unsolicited opinions about why The Princess Bride is the best movie of all-time, my random book recommendations, and unenlightening reflections of personal growth. My hope is that this blog becomes an authentic depiction of who I am, and my many interests.
But who knows where this life of traveling is going to lead me. I’m just excited to be along for the ride.
p.s. — if you don’t think the The Princess Bride is a fantastic movie, you might as well move on because I don’t see this thing getting any better for you.
p.p.s — I feel like you could make a fun drinking game around how often I use derivatives of the world ‘travel.’ Please let me know if any of you do anything with this.
