About Me: I have always had a desire to travel. When I was little, my parents couldn't afford to take us on summer trips. I think this might be the reason why I made up for it by living in Europe for two years!

My second home is Denmark where I spent a year as a high school exchange student. Even though it is a small country I love returning to explore as much of it as I can.

I travel a lot for work now which means, ironically, that I have little time to write journals. I do plan to share information from my last big trip to Europe (Denmark & Sweden) ... eventually. LOL! My next trip is back to Denmark at the end of 2014 but this trip will have a little twist in the form of my toddler coming along for the ride! I can't wait to turn him into a travel bug too.

More About girlfromals

I travel because...
I love it! There is so much to see around the world.
I love to travel to...
New Orleans, Florence, Athens, Denmark, Copenhagen, Soenderborg, Augustenborg, Regina, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan
I never forget to pack...
my camera ... even if I have a habit of dropping it on the ground at least once in any country I visit.
My weirdest travel habit is...
to over-research my destinations. My sister and I went to Florence and were unable to visit the Uffizi because it was closed on the day we were able to visit. So now I make sure I know what is open and when so I won't miss anything.
It's my dream to travel to...
Amsterdam, Dublin, London, Prague, Riga, Reykjavik, Chicago, New York
When I'm not traveling...
I'm traveling for work. lol
