Not all who wander are lost. Although it’s a famous J.R.R. Tolkein quote, it often comes to mind when I’m considering my next step in life. I am a wanderer. I love exploring unknown streets without a map, finding a small cafe, hearing the bustling of a city, and seeing something new for the first time. Even though I love spending time with my friends and family, I want my worldview challenged by a new perspective.
Most of the cities that I have visited don’t have a soul that could tell you my name or anything about me, so my footprint was definitely unseen. However, the city and its people have left another unseen footprint on my life. When the vacation ends and the credit card is paid off, the memories remain and impact my next steps. Traveling and exploring are passions of mine, and I love to encourage others to start planning their own adventures. Wander around with me!
