This blog chronicles my life as a newly arrived expat in Luxembourg, where I am alternately thrilled and horrified to practice my high school-level French. I have been all over Western Europe, but can’t wait to explore the nooks and crannies that most tourists don’t get to.

I first became hooked on exploring foreign countries during my study abroad in London. I was amazed at how easy it was to hop on a plane, train or boat and emerge in another country! Immersing myself in foreign places opened my eyes to the vastness of the world and I realized the value of experiencing other places. Every destination I have visited has altered my understanding of life in some way.

Through the years, I have traveled as much as possible, making efforts to experience new countries and cultures. I’m looking forward to continuing the journey!
