A sedentary life living and working in Philadelphia has never been the ideal life for me. My eyes yearn to see new and exciting places so I have made it a life long goal to travel and experience new cultures. I am a 22 year old Anthropology student at Temple University in Philadelphia which, in my opinion, is the best city on the East Coast; Yes, better than New York. We have everything in Philly: Art, Music, Nightlife and a diverse population. Philadelphia is a great metropolitan area that is small enough to ride your bike almost anywhere. My group of friends come from all over and when we all meet up you can find people from every region of the world. This is probably one of the reasons why I have such a urge to travel. The other is definitely following my father's footsteps who traveled to many different countries while in the military. So far I've lived in Durban. South Africa, been to a few countries in Southern Africa, and now reside in Peru for the next 2 months. I am still a very new traveler so still have allot of airplane tickets to book and trains to jump on! While in Peru, I hope to see the places hidden and off the beaten path, taste the local and unusual foods and really immerse myself in the culture. 2 months in Peru should be an adequate amount of time to gain some fluency in Spanish, my family's native tongue.
