In a Nutshell.
Most people call me Em. PA-living, Jersey girl at heart. Proud PKUer. Pet parent to a pit mix rescue. Auntie to four nieces and one nephew. I love books, movies, TV shows, and Disney everything. I am a kid at heart – introvert – nerd – explorer living life in that sweet spot between my comfort zone and the newness of the big, beautiful world.
This blog is mostly a bookshelf for my memories, a transposing of the sloppy, handwritten travel journals I carried so closely on my adventures. Some posts will tell tales of faraway lands while others will hardly take you outside of my head. There will also be some glimpses into other hobbies, and maybe the craziest adventure of all called everyday life.
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, taking out-of-the box adventures…
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.
As much as I love traveling, I also love having a place to call home. A place close to the people I love where I can enjoy the pleasures of everyday life- like puppies, cooking, books, movies, and daydreaming. And hopefully, it won’t be too long before I start planning my next adventure.
