Me in a Nutshell.
Emily. 20 something. Jersey girl. Happy newlywed. Daydreamer. Traveler. Tourist. Disney nerd. Book reader. Movie watcher. Introvert. Christian. PKUer. Auntie to three awesome nieces and one awesome nephew.
I cry too often, laugh too loudly, walk too quickly, and drink too much soda.
I’ve been reading travel/lifestyle blogs for a while now and finally decided to write my own. This will be a space that I use as a bookshelf for my various travel memories, from recent weekend getaways and past European adventures to long ago family vacations and my once in a lifetime honeymoon. There will also be an occasional glimpse into my everyday life, other interests, some wedding planning, and a few PKU adventures.
My Travel-Loving Life.
Doing it, planning it, reading about it, researching it, photographing it, dreaming it… anything that involves travel interests me. I love reading about different cities, seeing photos of grand landscapes, visiting museums and monuments… I’ve been known to pick up a travel guide and just start reading, even if I don’t have any immediate plans for a visit to that destination. I also price out dream vacations every now and then, choosing a hotel, finding an affordable flight, and dreaming up an itinerary, storing it in my head for when the opportunity arises.
As much as I love traveling, I also love having a place to call home and people to call family. The words vacationer, tourist, and traveler seem to have different meanings in some circles, but I consider myself a mix of all three. I have slept in lavish suites with breathtaking views, followed tour guides from city to city on giant coaches, and roughed it in tents and hostels. I go where I want to go and see it whatever way works best for me at that time. And when I get back to that place I call home, I’ll have new treasures to adorn my walls and hundreds of photos to share with my loved ones. And hopefully, it won’t be too long before I start planning my next adventure.
