Welcome to Global Heartbeat, a website featuring photos and stories from around the world. Designed to inspire, Global Heartbeat is my online and social media platform to share just some of the world’s greatest treasures with you.
My wanderlust began at a very young age. As a student, world history, geography, and languages fascinated me. I learned how to travel by watching my mom, whose organizational talents and ability to create memorable itineraries taught me much about how to travel well. To seal my fate as a hopeless wanderer, I went on two art history trips to Italy and studied abroad in Santiago, Chile – all before my 21st birthday. After graduating from university, I moved to Madrid, Spain and taught English for a couple of years… and traveled extensively on weekends and holidays. [You can read all about those adventures on my former blog, Tales of a Travel-Loving Teacher.]
In 2010, I married my college sweetheart, Justin. We made Orlando, Florida home for the next five years. In the summer of 2015, Justin took a new job with his company in Zürich, Switzerland, our current place of residence.
Justin and I are taking every chance we are given to continue exploring the world. We are thankful to have already had so many opportunities to travel, and we are excited about what our future holds!
However, no matter how much I travel and no matter how many places I visit, my Destination Bucket List continues to grow. Check out My Complete List of Travel Destinations and help me decide where to go next!
Thank you for visiting Global Heartbeat!
With joy and gratitude,
