I was born and raised in Duluth, Minnesota, USA. After having grown up there most of my life with a few travel adventures across the country, I decided to move to the city and have a change of view. I now go to school at Hamline University and am in my third (Junior) year of Undergraduate. Originally, I had wanted to become a Forensic Anthropologist as I had spent my whole childhood digging in the dirt for “old bones and things.” When I arrived at Hamline and began my studies I became further obsessed with traveling. It began to feed my nomadic side even further. Now, instead of getting a job I love and hopefully make enough to travel the world on vacation days, I am now hoping to be paid to travel the world in general.
My new career goals involve my double major in Global Studies and German (with a possible minor in Anthropology). I spend most of my time either working, going to college, or having my nose in a few books at once. On top of my already lack of social life, I spend most of my free time training for the half marathons and other races I have a not-so-awful running addiction to.
Currently, I am studying abroad (again) for a year at Universitaet Trier in Trier, Germany. I am beyond excited to be living here for the next year, as well as to start my research project for Global Studies. If I am given permission, maybe I will have the chance to post a few updates as to what my research will entail and how I am handling it. This is my third time here in this beautiful country and I plan to take advantage of being able to take the trains into the countries near by I have yet to see. If you have any suggestions as to where I should travel feel free to let me know! I love going to places I have never been and learning a little bit of the language and culture. I am an absolute travel-addict and I can never get enough of discovering new places and the people who live there (my anthropological side still exists).
I love hockey, traveling, listening Rock & Roll, and expressing my straight forward, honest opinions. This blog is mainly about whatever comes to mind, since I do love to sit around and think all the time. I plan to write about anything from what I have experienced, current issues today that I may want to see what others think of, or (in general) hand out tips and recommendations on the places I have been.
