But, growing up with my family and my awesome parents, I have been blessed to have gone many places. Hawaii, Mexico, Costa Rica, London, Paris, Okinawa, Tokyo, Hong Kong, India…. and now Thailand ~ which was my first trip I made without my parents. All these places were so special in their own way… but there’s nothing like traveling all the way across the world by yourself.

well here’s my blog ~ hope you enjoy 🙂
