I am a seasoned traveler, having visited most of the US & Europe, and I plan to go on many trips with my future child. My travels are temporarily on hold until the COVID crisis subsides.

I love to travel and learn about other cultures. I learned to have small daily pleasures everyday- look at a garden, eat a single delicious chocolate. I learned to have regular parties and dinner parties and how to be a great hostess from my trips and the people I met in Italy. Over the years, I've made many friends in different countries, and it's a pleasure to visit them.
When I'm in a new country, I find out through my existing friends if they know anyone who lives there, and plan coffee dates to get to know the locals. I go to museums, eat food specific to that region, and learn about the history and culture. This makes history come alive for me in an exciting way, and I go where my curiosity takes me. I hope to teach my child the pleasures of being well traveled.
I've visited over 20 countries in the Americas, Europe, and Asia; as far east as China, as far south as Argentina, and as far north as Iceland. I plan to return to Italy for 9 days in February 2020.
In my travels and everyday life, I am struck by how upsetting problems resolve themselves, if you stay calm and stay the course, putting one foot in front of the other.
