Took my first road trip at one month old, and haven't really stopped since. Highlights include mountains in Nepal, train rides in China, wig schools in Papua New Guinea, skiing in Antarctica and all kinds of South American craziness. When not abroad, I can be found camping in the US's beautiful national parks.
