Born and raised an Army brat, I have lived in so many different places over the years, it’s hard for me to count. Perhaps this is the genesis of my intense desire to see the world and live life to the fullest, i.e., support the philosophy of the Life Bus. To date, I have traveled to roughly 35 countries and countless states in the USA. I am fortunate to have a career that has allowed me to travel extensively either because of an assignment, or because of a ridiculous amount of frequent flyer points I have racked up from long term projects in hotspots such as, Mississippi, Texas, Oklahoma, New Jersey and Kansas. I say that in jest, but each of these ‘hotspots’ have provided me with adventures in the most unusual ways. In fact, I view life as one big adventure and hope to convey this message through this blog.
If you see an opportunity to experience something new, the Life Bus mentality should tell you to DO IT. My range of Life Bus experiences include camping in a tent in the middle of the Himalayas to slumming it in a Four Seasons in Hawaii. My travel preferences seem to ebb and flow depending on my state of mind or how many frequent flyer points I have banked. I love big cities, road trips, small country towns, mountains, backpacking, cross country skiing, beaches, remote campsites, treks of any length, sunsets, huts, luxe accommodations, and Disney. I have traveled solo, on guided tours and with my best friends, each trip bringing it’s own set of challenges, learnings and immense joy. My goal is to experience as much as I can while I still have my physical health and mental wits about me to make it enjoyable and to be able to tell the story without drooling.
