Welcome to my world of travel that has taken me from long-term solo travel to working with an elephant rescue organization and living in Chiang Mai, Thailand, to being a digital nomad in Europe, to returning to Las Vegas ... and all of the adventures that transpire!

Remember, life isn't about living happily ever after, it's about living!
