My passions for writing and traveling brought me here, to the World Reviewer.

I've swam in the warm waters of both coasts of Mexico, I've wandered around Stockholm and blended in with the Swedes, and I've spent weeks in Italy devoted to pizza and wine tasting and sight seeing. I've also spent a couple weeks in Australia, swimming at the Great Barrier Reef and walking in parks with wallabies, meandered around Copenhagen, and spent a fair share of time in Edinburgh.

I currently live in London and I'm in the process of learning the ways of the Brits.

In the next two months I plan on visiting Dublin, Amsterdam, Prague, and Rome. But my travel plans don't stop there... after a short break in California I am heading to Brazil for the summer to volunteer.
