About Me

Former global health specialist for Sub-Saharan Africa. Current first time mom in Europe to a feisty, travel addicted two year-old. All time adventurer.

I prefer travel off the beaten path, my toddler in a frame pack, and a Kinder Happy Hippo in my emergency food stash. I've lived and worked in over thirty countries, from the cloud forest in Costa Rica, to the coastal rural villages in Madagascar, to the wind swept desert sands of Jordan. Even though I'm an equal opportunity country visitor, my heart belongs to those in Africa and the Middle East.

ACinque Terre, Italy: I'm planning on doing the hike through all five villages in the cinque terre, any restaurants or shops that I should be sure to stop into?

AEurope: All-over Europe smartphone data plans/SIM cards for Italy & Switzerland

I'm not sure there is a plan that will allow both Italy and Switzerland. I have Vodafone Germany right now and you can connect automatically to the Vodafone Italia and Swiss branches, but you will pay high prices for service/ roaming/ data charges. It is a good option,... See More
