I'm a 35-year-old American with a serious case of wanderlust. I studied abroad in New Zealand in 2008 and dreamt about coming back ever since. In November 2014, I packed my bags and hopped on a one-way flight to Wellington. I've been exploring the real life Middle Earth ever since. Now, I live with my husband and our wonderful dogs, Higgs and Fern, so they're along on many of my adventures. Come join us!
