When I decided to start this blog, I knew travel would be a big part of it. Traveling is a part of my DNA on both sides of the family. My paternal grandparents defected from former East Germany in the ’50s in search of a better life and the chance to explore John Wayne’s wild west. They only ever made it as far west as Mississippi (later settling in New Hampshire) but considering they started at the German-Czech border, they made it pretty far. On the other side of the family, my grandfather, straight out of high school, joined the merchant marines and by his early 20s had circumnavigated the globe. It was a passion for travel that he has continued throughout his life, living in the US, Japan, the Netherlands and the UK.
A love of travel was ingrained in me at a young age. One of the things I love most about travel is getting to share it with others, whether it’s taking a trip together or telling your friends and family stories about your adventures later. With that, I am introducing a new series, Weekend Wanderings. On Fridays, I hope to share my explorations around my neighborhood, the Denver Metro, Colorado, the US and abroad.
