Good food, good drink, good fun. You name it, I’ll try it! Once, anyway. Jokingly, some of my closest friends call me A-D-D-ie too. The adventures and misadventures documented here, range from things I’ve eaten, seen, and experienced. Lucky enough to have lived in Italy, France, the United Kingdom, and now China, I’d like to share some of my itineraries, hits and misses from all over the world.
As many friends have asked about my travels, perhaps some of these stories can help pin-point a new destination, favorite hot spot, or enjoyable eat next time you’re taking the world by storm. Born and raised in a Chicago suburb with a Puerto Rican father and Mexican mother, let’s just say I’ve grown up global. Used to the ambivalence and paradoxes that go hand in hand with ethnic ambiguity and constantly circling the globe, I say, if you want it, go for it! My undying mantra? Live out loud, and make it count. And as always, to all my friends brave enough to venture all the way here, my door and couch are always open! Check back soon and often for updates and answers to all your queries. Suggestions and questions are always welcome.
I’m currently completing a global media and communications masters at Fudan University in Shanghai, with a specialization in lifestyle journalism and luxury markets. I am always looking for a chance to add to my collection of far away places, so stay tuned to read and exchange your traveling stories!
