I've been giving in to wanderlust since my first trip to Europe when I was 14. Since then, I've returned more than 20 times, primarily to Germany and Austria, two countries where I have also lived briefly and studied. I enjoy soft adventure travel and have spent time hiking, kayaking and bicycling in countries like Belize, the Dominican Republic and Grenada, as well as on Kauai. I'm lucky in that, since last year, I've been able to support myself im multiple capacities as full-time freelance travel writer, travel web site owner and tourism marketing consultant. See you on the road.
