Welcome to RAMBLINARIUM!
I love to ramble...... and have been told it’s about time I create a contained space for my travel stories, life experiences and other roving thoughts. So here you have it.
My love of travel and commitment to social issues have brought me around the globe. With each nibble of street food, soak in a hot spring, entrance to a temple and splash in a river, I come alive with curiosity, excitement and awe. Yesterday, I met a solo traveler from Korea while in Udaipur, India and he asked me how many countries I’ve been to. I really had no idea but decided to scribble a quick list. It goes something like this…..
USA, Canada, Egypt, Jordan, France, Italy, Turkey, Croatia, Japan, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, Papua New Guinea, Poland, Israel, Cambodia, Laos, China, Finland, Russia, Mexico, Germany, Czech Republic, Belize, India, Belgium, Holland – and I’m sure I’m leaving some treasured haunts out. I've had me some pretty awesome experiences around the US as well and one day I hope to bike across the country.
Whether I’m in a dugout canoe in Papua New Guinea, sliding down a waterfall in North Carolina or organizing events in NYC, I live in the moment and love taking it all in. I relish opportunities to immerse myself in the nature, culture and community of each place. Getting to know local people and environmental/social issues is key for me, and I ‘m always excited to get involved and do some work too.
And so the blog begins.
Welcome to my ramblings!
A social worker…..working socially, around the globe.
