There is freedom waiting for you, On the breezes of the sky,
And you ask “What if I fall?”
Oh but my darling, what if you fly? -EH
Midwest Heart. Adventurer. English Teacher. Female Traveler.
Escaping the city and entering the world.
Born and raised in Minnesota by two incredible parents alongside 3 fun loving siblings. I spent my college years at the University of Minnesota studying Journalism and Communications. My travel bug first awoke when I backpacked through Europe for a month at the age of 19 with my sister and from then on my life was forever changed. I then studied abroad in London and met some of the greatest people I have ever known. After graduating I entered the corporate world for 4 years and very soon realized that my life in a cubicle didn’t feel quite right. My dreams felt bigger than that.
Onto my next chapter of my life: Teaching abroad. I originally went to college to become a teacher but changed majors my junior year (as many of us do). I soon realized that if I were to regret something in life, it would have been not teaching abroad. I decided to take the next step in my journey and intertwine my passions of children, teaching and travel and pack my bags to move to South Korea. I moved to Korea in August 2015 and am still currently living here. I have found a love for teaching that I never imagined.
I also want to emphasize that student’s loans don’t need to run your life. I have plenty of student loans but have made the right decisions to enable myself to travel still. I wasn’t born in a life that financially supported all my adventures but independently I found ways to make the adventures happen. Whether it was working two jobs or realizing memories are so much more valuable than materialistic possessions. I am looking forward to sharing my advice with traveling on a budget but still feeling like you are getting everything worth it that you can.
My hope is that I can share with you all my adventures while hoping to inspire others to make the change and find the passion in themselves to do something that they love.
