My name is Caitlin. I was born and raised in Vermont, a small, green, mountainous state in the northeast of The United States. I went to Goucher College, a small liberal arts school in Maryland, halfway down the east coast. I graduated having studied abroad three times-Mexico, Ireland, and Morocco.
That was 2011. I’ve since lived in Ireland, Vietnam, Australia and The Czech Republic, most of the time teaching English as a second language, but also horseback riding, teaching riders, and training horses. All the while I’ve been getting to know the world around me.
As I move about I try meet locals and I eat their food. I ask questions and I listen, I do my best to get the real story behind the politics and the b.s. and to learn what life on the ground is really like.
I do not believe in rushing. I could tell you how many countries I’ve been to but that wouldn’t be a fair picture of what I’ve really seen. I believe in naps on the beach and an afternoon with a book and a cup of tea. I believe in hammocks and fuzzy socks, brunch cocktails and wandering cities with no map. I believe this is a process, an education, and an art form.
I do a lot of my travel solo, but if someone wants to join me I never turn them down so some trips have been with friends, boyfriends, siblings, or parents. Generally, I travel on a pretty tight budget, I choose hostels over hotels and cheap eats over Michelin stars. I’ll definitely dodge a tram ticket and wash my undies in the sink. But I’ll also buy a theater ticket or take a river boat cruise. I think it’s important to cut the corners that don’t matter so you can manage to afford the experiences that tend to be exceptional.
I hope you’ll come along with me, keep up with my adventures and let me help you on yours!
