Liz is currently reaping the benefits of a bad economic climate, scapegoating the job market as motive to head back abroad. Armed with a trusty camera and enough sunscreen to lather the Perito Moreno Glacier, Liz is exploring Latin America with goals of mastering Spanish and South American wine, often simultaneously. Liz maintains steadfast positivity and optimism towards all things in life, albeit facing dwindling odds that she will return home having "figured it all out".
