Get Ready, It’s Time to Fly

South America is filled with sacred valleys, unique cuisine, ancient myths and a vibrant, spirited culture. In the midst of the 2016 Rio Olympic games, I feel it’s right to share my love and experiences visiting this exotic continent. The plan to travel to South America sprung upon me.

That’s what makes it fun and memorable though, it’s crazy and amazing at the same time. The travel bug hit me after my first overseas trip. I was about 11 years old when I… Continue Reading
