travel the world
see the world and meet the people

I love to experience different cultures and languages and meet people all over the world. The thing I learned in my first overseas trip to a country in which I didn’t look like the nationals and didn’t speak the language was that a smile says hello in any language. It helps to speak a few phrases too!
