Hi! I’m Erica.
I’m 25 years old and I’ve had some of the best experiences of my life through traveling. Although I may just be another blog about travel… another person in love with the world… another “one with wanderlust,” one of the greatest things about travel is that everyone has just a slightly different experience and a slightly different story to share.
During my first day in Penang, Malaysia, I helped to capture two of the country’s most wanted criminals and was featured on the front page of the newspaper the following day.
I’ve watched my dad land his plane right over my head on Maho Bay in Saint Maarten.
I’ve been on a boat in Victoria British Colombia, Canada, surrounded by more than 60 killer whales.
In Singapore, my long maxi skirt got caught in an escalator and I almost had to tour the city in my underwear.
I’ve found myself in the middle of a violent fútbol riot in Madrid.
I’ve explored an abandoned amusement park in Berlin.
I’ve been pooped on by a bird while spending a relaxing afternoon on the lawn in front of Museo del Prado in Madrid, Spain.
I’ve been conned by a crazy cat lady in Biarritz, France.
I’ve been humbled by the stories of Auschwitz and the Anne Frank House.
I’ve frolicked around a beach only reachable by boat without another soul in sight in Sardinia, Italy.
After spending two of the best years of my life teaching English in Madrid, Spain, I now live in Dallas with my boyfriend and Olive, our Old English Sheepdog. I adore my family, I love hot tea & craft beer, and Madrid, Spain, will forever have my heart. I believe in committing random acts of kindness, saving the whales, telling cheesy jokes, and finding millions of reasons to have a heart full of gratitude.
“Travel has a way of stretching the mind. The stretch comes not from travel’s immediate rewards, the inevitable myriad new sights, smells and sounds, but with experiencing firsthand how others do differently what we believed to be the right and only way.” –Ralph Crawshaw
