I'm Abby, a twenty-four year old Tennessee native that loves to travel,
geeks out about business stuff, and is pretty much obsessed with my little jungle-dog.
I always thought that my life would follow a very particular timeline: school, college, job, family, and so on. Getting my first taste of travel changed that, and the coupling of my insatiable wanderlust and a passion for non-profit work led me to become something my friends and family never expected- a Peace Corps volunteer.
Two years later, I had´t yet had my fill of Peace Corps Panamá, so I extended my service for a third year and moved across the country where I now work as the Regional Leader of the Darien province. Through my job I often find myself traveling across the region to visit volunteers, scouting for and developing relationships with potential communities for future volunteers, and liasing with development agencies, NGOs, and the national Peace Corps office.
I hope you enjoy reading along as I blog about life and wanderlust while I begin to make my way in the world. I'll be posting about travel, DIYs, and life in general. Oh, and I may post about food and how cute my dogs are, because who doesn't love those things?
