About

Hi there and welcome!   Glad you are stopping by.  This Blog was created to keep my friends & family in touch with my whereabouts.  On the road, you might find me cooking at someone’s street cart, or pouring drinks at a bar that doesn’t belong to me or taking over a vendor’s shop so they can go have lunch with their family.

Originally hailing from the Bay Area in California, I have not lived there in years.  Taking my wanderlust to a higher level, I have lived and worked overseas for nearly the last decade.  Still, I continue to find San Fransisco one of the best cities in the world.  It has heaps of what I love–multicultural communities, valued artists, sustainable actions, free, open-minded & creative thinkers…and access to beautiful nature.  The City weather could be warmer….Brrr!

Brief History:  When I was 16 years old, the Italian Consulates across America granted 30 Italian-American students from across the States, scholarships for a 3 week tour of Italy–bringing young people closer to their heritage.  I was fortunate to have been selected to go!  Walking through a magic portal of immigration, my feet landed on foreign soil, I received that first stamp in my passport…and I was in love!  Travel, I thought, you and I are going to have a long and wonderful relationship.  Travel and I have been together for more than 25 years.

By the time I was 25 (and there was only around 4 billion people on earth), I visited Central America, Southern Africa, 30+ States in the US, and parts of Europe–mostly as a solo traveler. Currently, I have lived on 3 continents and have visited nearly 50 countries. Just for the record, I don’t have a “Bucket List”, nor do I travel to “check things off the list”.  I travel for the experiences of moving from place to place–the Journey. The location is secondary.

It is hard to balance out work and Travel, so recently I have stopped ‘work‘ and will now meet up with Travel for a year long affair.  We are headed down to South America to do a little dancing–unless the wind blows me elsewhere.

About Me:  I enjoy meeting people and snapping pictures. I like to learn.  I prefer street food to fancy.  Spontaneous dance parties are the best!  I like to create stuff & break stuff…I think one should always “leave the gun, take the cannoli.”

love,

Susi
