Fun fact: I have a PhD in German Studies and wrote my dissertation on contemporary Austrian women’s travel writings and documentaries. Now I am switching things up and writing about my own travels!

But there are many other things I am curious about and enjoy writing about: food, films, language, feminism, education, and culture in general. I have begun to dabble a bit in photography and like to share some of my favorite shots on here.

Originally, I am from the U.S., but have spent time living abroad in Germany, Austria, and Brazil. Right now I live with my family in Maputo, Mozambique.
