I started traveling when I was 19. My interest in sociology led me all the way to West Africa on a class trip with my university in December of 2006. I loved it and learned so much that I was hooked! Did an internship in Costa Rica over summer of 2008 for my degree in Recreation and Ecotourism. I learned and experienced so many wonderful things that I knew traveling would become part of my life in some form.
After graduating in December 2008, I took up an opportunity to work at sea for a cruise line, and I’ve been sailing the high seas ever since – through the Baltic, the Amazon, the St. Lawrence, the Mediterranean, the Suez Canal, the Panama Canal, and more. It’s been a whirlwind these past few years, and with all the struggles that come with living on a ship, there are just as many great benefits. I can now say I’ve sailed the seven seas and been to EVERY continent!
I am determined to share all of this not only because I love to, but also as a resource for me to look back and be thankful for all my wonderful experiences (and in case my hard drive crashes again, I don’t want to lose all my writing!). I also hope that others can get something out of it whether that’s what to do or not do, or where to go or avoid.
I’m out to explore the world and share what I find. Through photos, videos, and stories, I hope to form a better understanding of this beautiful place I heart: EARTH.

THIS GIRL LOVES THIS BOY.
This is Rob, the other half of the “we” I always write about. We met in June 2010, kissed in July, and got engaged in August 2013. Sounds simple but he’s a sort of a Liverpudlian and I’m pretty much a Seattleite, (plus my parents lived in Abu Dhabi for three years) which means lots of planes and lots of money. Luckily we both work on ships and call each one home in between visits at our other homes.
Together we like to:
Drink tea, scuba dive, travel all over, pet animals, eat well, photograph, surround ourselves with amazing people, create and compile videos, practice good karma, indulge in crunchy peanut butter, listen to our record collection, watch lightning storms, daydream about living on land again, cook, laugh, and be merry!
