Mandy-048 ed 2Hi, I’m Mandy.

I’m a writer and photographer. I usually cover inspiring people and places and deeply meaningful experiences.

Currently I’m based in the Washington, D.C. area, but I travel sometimes, too. One year I went to 19 countries, 3 occupied territories, and 1 green zone (over lunch).

Lately I’ve been studying Turkish. I plan to move there in the fall of 2017.

This blog covers interesting people, rich experiences, family & solo travel, and whatever else has got my goat or piqued my curiosity. Cause I gotta scratch the itch!

I feel pretty damned grateful. Especially for you, dear Reader. Thanks for being here!

On Facebook, I’m over here. Mostly I’m on Facebook. I’m also on YouTubeInstagram, Pinterest, and Twitter. The very best way to follow me (please do!) is to subscribe to the blog (in the sidebar), and you’ll get an email each time I post.

Thank you for reading!
