Where Mystery Meets Magic

Feel like I’m in the remotest place on earth surreal yet real

Grasslands, horses, sunshine, pristine air… clear blue sky

Authenticity of living as a Mongolian

Driving on the highway through Inner Mongolia beholding the magnificent scenery around us had me eager to miss not a second of the glorious beauty of God’s creation

I’ve never been to the Grand Canyon but after the stunning Northern China, Southern Mongolia landscape it looked as though I witnessed a miniature version of it

The cliffs, ditches, rivers and stone all blended together under the gorgeous blue sky confirmed my belief that China is so vast and versatile geographically and topographically

Fields of sunflowers and corn crops waiting to be harvested by the diligent farmers

I had really hoped to visit the border somewhere in the wistful depths of my mind but maybe some other time… living the nomadic Mongol lifestyle throughout this trip

Travel is not just what I do but it is who I am. When I first traveled abroad in high school as a foreign exchange student, little did I know that it would serve as the threshold of a lifetime interest in globetrotting. Now nearly 10 years later, I have lived in four countries and plan to do much more traveling in years to come. The world of teaching English has given me incredible opportunity to engage in cultural anthropology and I certainly can't get enough of the language learning process as a polyglot in the making.My personal website is currently under construction but I also maintain a micro-blog on facebook that enables me to share my insights and experiences with my ever-growing following. All in all, I am most proud to be known as a global citizen, a reference I accept with humility and honor. Blogging is rad! Many thanks (muchas gracias, feichang ganxie, grazie un millon, fala menogu) to KFTW for allowing me this platform to connect with the world and vice versa. St. Augustine said it best: “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page."
