Welcome to my blog! I’m a 23-year-old adventuress who never imagined living overseas. But after earning a scholarship to live in Northern Ireland for a year, I left my homebody ways forever.
My nine months on the Emerald Isle were revolutionary. I grew in confidence. I finally understood the beauty of intercultural connection and trust. I learned to revel in risk. I basked in the inexplicable beauty of a stranger’s kindness. And I was nearly brought to tears by the network of Christ-followers that worship our Lord in the same way, no matter where they call home.
Now, having visited nearly 30 countries, I constantly battle the yearn to roam with the desire for roots. In the process, I have come to see that we travelers can (and are called to) be content in any situation – even when the next overseas journey is not yet on the horizon.
Adventure is always around the corner. Even amidst the routines of our daily grind, we simply have to open our eyes to find it. And in the interim between adventures, the stillness has much to teach us too.
If you can either live vicariously through my tales or be moved by my reflections, I will be overjoyed. Happy reading, and thanks for stopping by.
