I love travel and I love people. Growing up I was fortunate to have experiences traveling to the Dominican Republic where my mother was from, and enjoying trips to western Pennsylvania where my father was from. Having extended family in both locations, I learned of people and their cultures through their homes, their relationships, foods, music, and history.
Over the years, I have ventured out on my own travels: I’ve gone to school with my friend Anne in Germany, rented a flat in Barcelona near the beach, stayed with a host family in Scotland, and enjoyed Paris by staying in my friend’s home two blocks from the Eiffel Tower. My latest travel adventure was moving with my partner from Denver, Colorado to live in Spain. When it comes to style of traveling, I’m adaptable and open, having stayed in everything from budget hostels to chic boutique hotels and historically grand five-star hotels to private renovated castles in the Scottish Borders of Scotland.
Today I live in Dénia, Spain on the Mediterranean with my loving partner Eric J. Trujillo. Together, we enjoy our dream of living abroad and share about travel through our writing and videography at MoveToTraveling.com. Our most current goals (in no particular order) are to further our work of travel writing and videography, produce feature-length films, and own a sailboat one day soon. We especially love traveling the world at a slower pace and experiencing new places by meeting the locals. Our next desired destinations are Asia and the South Pacific.
My approach to life is to be open and to keep people in mind as priority number one. I like to apply this to travel as well. Whether it is with our business and work, our relationships and personal life, or with ourselves and our travels, taking a “people perspective” will only enrich our experiences and in that case, our lives. So thank you for being here and getting to know a bit about me. Please share my site with others and let me know if you’re ever in my part of the world. Open invitations to your part of the world are also welcomed!
