noun \ˈga-lə-ˌvan-triks\ : a female who travels to many different places for pleasure
I like to travel, whether its to the park down the street or to the ancient ruins across the world. This blog was started as my life and career came together to afford me the opportunity to combine work and pleasure. My plan is to teach in a different country every other year, and spend the off years enjoying adventures in and around my home base of Seattle, WA. I like to talk about different aspects of travel and adventure, preparing, experiencing and reflecting, the good and bad, the beautiful and ugly, the mundane and exotic.
Sometimes, I will post every day, and sometimes I may not have any adventures to share for a while, but I’m always looking for one, so it won’t take too long.
I like to provide research links, mini-lessons and other things that can help my readers get a good perspective on the experience, and I welcome questions, information and other perspectives.
While these stories are a mainly combination of journaling for myself and letting my friends and family live vicariously through me as I take on adventures, I welcome strangers and future friends, and I hope you all get some combination of education and entertainment from my efforts.
