Travel Ur Dreams !!!
*** 26 Years of Travel Adventures ***
It all began many years ago with an urge to start moving. My first trip was when I was 17 in 1994, freshly graduated from high school with no real plans ahead. A dear friend invited me to go to Costa Rica with him and I accepted without even thinking twice. I fell in love with the country and culture immediately. After the two week trip was coming to an end I decided with just a few hundred dollars to my name that I was not going home. I called my mother to let her know that I did not need a ride home from the airport, and started my search for ways of survival in Costa Rica. An amazing opportunity immediately fell into my lap. Would you like to work at an animal rehabilitation center in Quepos/ Manuel Antonio taking care of 2 baby congo monkeys? I called Jardin Gaia immediately and told them my past experience of working at the wildlife and zoological department at the University of Florida and they asked how soon I could arrive there. It took me a few days to travel there by bus and upon arrival they placed two baby congo monkeys in my arms and said welcome, these are your babies to care for.
So, after several months working there the adventures continued for about 7 years mostly as a solo female traveler. Travels were mostly in Mexico, Central and South America. Taking different jobs along the way and finding many cheap ways of traveling. After 7 years of being on the road, I tried out the married life and was married for almost 11 years. Some travels occurred during this time, but my overwhelming desire to keep moving took over. After the end of the marriage, my travels resumed in full blast. I have been traveling pretty much non- stop for the last 4 years with no signs of slowing down.
I have recently started a new type of adventure on June 9th on a journey across the world. With no actual plans, just to travel, live and experience the world in our Jeep Cherokee named Eldo. I have found a man to share this adventure with which is unusual for me since I am normally a solo traveler. Eldo is our key to success with life on the road.
I hope to share my adventures and travels around the world with you, in hopes to inspire you and the world to Travel Ur Dreams!!!!
