A few months ago, as 2016 and my 30th birthday were approaching, I had a moment of “what have I done with my life??” I took the opportunity to look back through all of my travels as well as recognizing that I have two careers which I am truly passionate about, and I realized that I’ve done a lot and should be so proud of that!
The Travel Bug bit for the first time 16 years ago when I went on a trip to Japan… Having studied the Japanese language and culture, I loved immersing myself!! It was like putting a classroom into real life – I was hooked!
Fitness has been the same. Growing up as a dancer, being an active person was normal for me. Daily dance classes and nightly rehearsals were always a part of my day-to-day “itinerary”. After college I moved to Australia to pursue dance and worked for a Pilates company. I have always been inspired to help people feel good about themselves and working in fitness has allowed me to do this.
After moving back from Australia (which is when I started my first blog, 8 years ago) I went into “Corporate America” and worked for a group travel company. Now, I work for a luxury bespoke travel company in New York City. I also started dancing again and the spark was relit; I began training in fitness. I am currently instructing at boutique studios, and I love helping people feel good about themselves and their experiences. I am so lucky to be able to do that in both of my careers!
“ALLOW YOUR PASSSION TO BECOME YOUR PURPOSE, AND IT WILL ONE DAY BECOME YOUR PROFESSION”
Now, I travel for both work and pleasure – I love seeing new places, meeting new people, and experiencing new things. While traveling, many people (including myself) find it difficult to maintain the routine of a healthy lifestyle, one that they have been so good at keeping while home. In addition to writing about my trips and sharing insight, I hope to create a space for people to find ways to stay healthy, and keep fit, while traveling. I am in no way an “expert” but rather want to share my experiences with you.
