“Whether I shall turn out to be the hero of my own life, or whether that station will be held by anybody else, these pages must show.” – Charles Dickens in David Copperfield
I was trying to make this page clever.
So naturally I opted for quotation: “serviceable substitution for wit” – Oscar Wilde
Here I was on a full-ride scholarship (applause!) to Brigham Young University. I had the support of loving family, friends, and mentors, in the comfort of Utah Valley – but something was missing. Then, as if sensing my need, a lovely friend pointed me in the direction of Istanbul, Turkey.
That’s where my traveling journey began. And I never really want it to stop.
A teacher at heart:
This is for my friends and family who I’m keeping up to date. Suckers.
Hopefully, along the way I’ll bring some insight and helpful tips to those who wish to travel. Mostly I’ll divulge into my weird takes and snarkisms on things I see, learn, and hear, bringing light (and joy, hopefully a chuckle) to those who can’t travel with me. So I offer you a glimpse into the world as I see it – generally, with arbitrary bouts of snickering and jeering, but mostly…optimism.
I’d like for everyone to invest in a nice pair of Smart Wool socks.
I’m a clean hippy…
…who can’t get enough of the northern coasts, especially the Pacific Northwest. And I probably have no idea what being a “clean” hippy means. Feel free to comment.
I’m a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (it means a lot to me). I have a couple families who live on both coasts of the United States and who support me more than I can even describe or ever repay. I’ve been an introvert and an extrovert. Most definitely I’m defined by the relationships I keep, the people that I love, and how I treat the people I meet everyday.
I like thrift stores. If I was a book I’d be a self-help book. If I was a fabric pattern I’d be paisley.
So you want to learn more about the merits of smart wool socks?
Or you know, if you have a question, suggestion, or caustic commentary (would be much appreciated)
Alright, love you all!
