My first foray into blogging…

It has been my intention for a while to begin putting my thoughts into a blog. I’ve browsed through how-to’s that have suggested that you choose one thing to base your blog on. The problem is that I have had a hard time settling on one thing that I am inspired to share my thoughts on…and so I have decided to not choose. It is not my intention to earn a living from my blog, simply to share my thoughts. Hopefully they will be read and enjoyed. If I’m lucky, maybe I’ll even inspire someone…

A little about me, perhaps, to start off with?

I am 27 years old and live in a small town in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, within 30 miles of where I was born. I have been working in the chaotic world of hospitality for the last five years and have full intentions of staying in the tourism/travel/hotel line of work for the rest of my days. I am currently working on a Travel Specialist certification course, but with no immediate plans on how I intend to use it.

In the “book world” I am currently working on Robert Jordan’s “Wheel of Time” series. Admittedly, it is a heavy task to take on with there being 14 books to complete and approximately 700 pages a book (if not more). I made the decision to tackle this one in paperback and ordered the whole lot on Ebay!

In the travel realm, I recently returned from a trip to Greece, that also included a stopover in Amsterdam and London. I will surely be posting thoughts and pictures, maybe some travel advice as well, at some point. And for the first time in my life, I have 2 international trips in 1 year! The UK beckons me back once again this upcoming fall, for which I have happily accepted.

That about sums up my 3 passions….books, my first passion. Travel, my strongest. And hospitality, my career. As I said before, I have no particular intentions for this blog except to put my thoughts down somewhere and hopefully connect with some great people.


Thank you to everyone who takes the time to read this!
