August’s Edition of Wanderwings’ Traveller of the Month will take us all the way to the Midwest to meet Samantha from Samantha en Route. The born and bred midwestern will tell us a bit more about her travels, so keep on reading this month’s inspiring traveller.
My mom is from India (even though we don’t look like it) and I’ve been visiting India every few years since I was nine months old. In college I minored in Spanish, so I decided to take my last year and spend it in Santiago de Compostela, Spain – more for traveling than for studying Spanish. In that year I hopped around 7 countries on breaks and during long weekends and had the time of my life! I’ve always loved travel but studying in Europe made me even thirstier for adventure.
I would have to say my most memorable experience would be my spring break in Italy and Paris while I studied abroad. Nobody would come with me as everyone else was from Europe already and just wanted to go home for a week, so I (being an introvert at heart) happily planned my every move for my week away. I bought all my monument tickets in advance and did whatever I wanted to. I went to Florence and Pisa for a day, and even spent a night in Paris because there was a nonstop flight from Rome. I had so much fun just being on my own and loved not having to share it with anyone #sorrynotsorry
Going to India for Christmas!!!
