Hi everyone! I've been traveling all my life, though for the first 3rd it was pretty much confined to road trips around New England. Then a couple of international trips in high school and college really got my hooked. About 5 years ago, I started teaching English in other countries, which I think is one of the best ways to see the world.

But at the moment, I'm US bound so I'm hoping to have a chance to explore some other areas of the States that I haven't been to yet.

1) Erica
2) 35
3) Single
4) No
5) Suburb about 15 miles north of Boston
6) Hometown (and unfortunately the same room I grew up in!)
7) 6 weeks in India and Nepal
8) None beyond a weekend in NYC :(
9) All of them, really, for very different reasons, but a year later, India and Nepal are kind of haunting me
10) South America or New Zealand

Hey all! I'm Abby, a 20-year-old college student studying anthropology and music and global sustainability. I LOVE to travel, I went to Indonesia for study abroad this summer to learn Balinese Gamelan music, I want to study abroad again for a semester in the fall, and I've been to Europe a few times. I've lost 22 pounds but I'm coming to this site to continue maintaining my good lifestyle and to lose a few more inches if I can. If not, that's okay too, so long as I'm healthy!!! Nice to meet you all!

2. very sexy 60
3. In a relationship with a wonderful man
4. 2 sons, 1 grandson all back in the St. Louis area.
5. Webster Groves, MO

7. Gulf Shores, AL. Aug 2010
8. Who knows?
9. My piece of heaven is Gulf Shores, AL. Any reason I can find to escape for a few days is always on my mind. I wish my bank account would allow me to move there.
10. The other place I love is the Land of Enchantment. I was fortunate enough to drive from North Alabama to Las Vegas in July 2007. We had a wonderful 12 days of unbelievable fun. We stopped at most of the usual places, OKC, Flagstaff, Grand Canyon, ALBQ, Hoover Dam, and many more. A room on the 24th floor of the Stratosphere was home for 5 days. I didn't want to come back to AL. But then reality had to set in. Besides, Gulf Shores is 2100 miles from LV. emoticon

Hello friends,

My name is Anna. I spent a few days in Cambria, California in summer. I will be visiting Washington D.C. for the first time in October. So far my favorite destination experienced so far is China in 2006. My dream vacation would be around the world!

Greetings fellow travelers. I am a teacher from Northern California who loves to travel. My pictures from my last visit to France (summer 2009) inspired me to get back to Spark and start working on my weight. I've lost 50 pounds and hope to lose 40 more. I'll be traveling to Crete and Rhodes for two weeks in November to visit my newborn granddaughter. Hopefully I'll be in better shape to be the active traveler I want to be. I look forward to support and travel talk with the Love to Travel team.

Together we can do this!
