- V!VA Travel Guides
I've always had the travel bug - maybe it's because I've been traveling around with my family since I was an infant, but mainly I think it's because I'm curious, and I'll always have a child's curiosity about the world and everything in it. I also have a persistant need to express myself in any form possible - whether it's through photography, painting, music, writing or any other medium I can get my hands on. So I'm happy to say that with V!VA I've found a great fit, and it's so exciting to be out of the office and learning first hand about new places and people.
