I’m glad you’ve stopped by to explore. I’m even more excited that your either considering going abroad for the first time or you’ve already been bitten by the travel bug and have loads of your own stories to tell. I’ve created this blog to share advice that I’ve gained through my own experiences. I’ve also created these resources for you to share with professionals you may be working with to plan your next adventure. I would love to connect with you to share experiences or answer an questions you may have!
