I love to travel. Travel moves me more than physically from my home in Central Illinois. It moves me spiritually and emotionally. Connecting with those I love through new experiences or reliving favorite memories; meeting new people and making lifetime friends; pushing myself for the sake of vacation – these are the things that make me certifiably happy. The only thing I love more than travel is the research I do in anticipation of travel. I truly enjoy the process of preparing for a trip – super sleuthing my way to the best experience and respite from everyday life.
