Who We Are (were) - written before our trip
I love traveling. Although I have been to many places I have never been away for more than a few months. I have backpacked through SE Asia, India, Africa and parts of Europe. I've also hiked 100s of miles here in the states (through 8 national parks and segments of the Appalachian trail). I first became interested in traveling in 2009 when I backpacked SE Asia, India, and Ireland for 10 week just after finishing graduate school for biomedical engineering.
I'm 30 years old and grew up in Cleveland, Ohio. I studied in Michigan, lived in Memphis, TN and most recently call Philadelphia my home. I've been living in the city of Brotherly Love since the beginning of 2012 and I absolutely love it here! I have made great friends all over the world and cherish every one--even if I don't see/speak to them regularly.
Hi! My name is Sylvie. I am 26 years old and am from Philadelphia, Pa. I was working an an elementary school teacher before quitting my job to travel the world.
In college I had the opportunity to study in Italy and Costa Rica. While studying in Rome I traveled all over Europe and fell in love with the traveling lifestyle. I I think traveling is the single greatest contributor to self-discovery and growth as an individual. I know that traveling will enhance my future, my career, my relationships and my outlook on the world. I look forward to seeing new countries and creating life long memories across the globe.
