2015 Year in Review

2015 was a really rewarding year for me from start to finish. It began with me floating on cloud nine from receiving some of the best news of my life: an invitation to serve as a Peace Corps volunteer. Upon accepting the invitation, I initiated the process of familiarizing myself with Macedonia, the country where I would spend two years of my life serving the people through education, friendship and community integration.

Macedonia is the only country I traveled to last year, but it has been one of my most endearing adventures abroad thus far in my short time of being here. I managed to travel within the USA quite a bit last year from my leadership-related trip to New York City to my first-time visit to the lone-star state of Texas. Thankfully, I made it to the beach as well, having spent a few days at a beloved vacation destination of my family's.

The following photos are mostly moments from Macedonia with a few included from my excursions to both Fort Worth and Dallas, Texas several days before my departure to Southern Europe. Enjoy!!!

Happy New Year (party)

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."
