I grew up in North America and have spent almost all my time here. For 20 years before I started this blog I traveled extensively in North America. Visiting 49 of the 50 states in my young 20’s was huge in my formative years. And getting down to Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean have been a breeze. A warm, soothing, tropical breeze that is. Combining those breezes with North America’s cosmopolitan cities and wide open, expansive national parks will have you yearning to explore your own backyard.
