I’m Rebekah, I’m an American 20-something social worker who loves running, hiking, oversharing on the internet, camping, craft beer, yoga, acting like a hipster, books, and of course, traveling.
I was raised an expat child in Zambia, a country that I will always love. I’m fairly sure my childhood was pretty close to being as perfect as a childhood gets because I had about 6 dogs, lived next to a banana plantation and found Africa is the perfect place for your imagination to run wild. In college I did a semester in Romania where I also got to go to Bulgaria and Istanbul and where I truly fell in love with traveling. I also am sort of a National Park Groupie and think Acadia, Zion, and Glacier are pretty close to heaven. I have my eyes set on Yosemite and Shenandoah. Home the past few years has been Portland Maine, which in my opinion is the greatest city in all of America and I love every single cobblestone, pint-glass and barnacle of that city. I love traveling but there is no place better to continuously return too then the rocky coast of Maine.
Currently I’m teaching English in Nanchong China while on a mission to eat all the dumplings, run all the mountains, and learn as much as I can about this country. When the year is up I plan on doing a bit of wandering.
