Have been dreaming of travelling since young..
I was totally enthralled by beauty of nature and just love to see them before my own eyes..

Travelling is all about having the passion to do so, dunno, but I was born with it I guesssss :)

A dream I should realise.

I actually started traveling before I even wanted to! I'm 21 now at Purdue University. I moved from Phoenix,AZ to Hamburg, Germany because of my dads job when I was 10. It was originally a 2 year thing, then we ended up moving to Singapore for 3 years, back to Hamburg for 2 more years, and to Toulouse, France for one year. I ended up living overseas from 5th grade until I graduated and went to college. It wasn't until I was maybe 16 or 17 that I really began to appreciate all the traveling I had done and desired to travel more. Now that I'm in college and about to get a job, I love to think about all the cool places I have been, that most people will never have the opportunity to go to. Also, I was able to do it without much hassle...we pretty much did most of Western Europe in our car, as well as much of SE Asia with short flights. I miss the opportunity to travel to another country for a long weekend and just move all over the place. I currently have an internship with Contiki, and I'm hoping to find a job that will give me the opportunity to travel to more places I haven't been for my job or for cheap!
