A little about me…

I’m Anna. I grew up out in the country in northern Minnesota, 10 miles from the closest town with a population of 100. I always dreamed about what the rest of the world had to offer. I collected travel guides from all 50 states with the zeal that my cousin collected baseball cards. I read encyclopedia entries about far off places and atlases like other kids might pour over comic books. My favorite poster was Flags of the World.

Unfortunately, travel was a luxury not often afforded in our family. I mostly traveled around Minnesota and Wisconsin to visit family and to attend music festivals with my musician father. The first time I flew in a commercial airline was a school trip to Hawaii when I was 16. I didn’t LOVE flying but I was thrilled to see places so far from home. Some of my travels have been…

  • 1 week in Oahu, HI (school trip)
  • 1 week in Washington, D.C. (school trip)
  • Minnesota to Idaho road trip x 3
  • Weird Wisconsin (road trip to quirky art places)
  • Study abroad for 6 weeks in Cuernavaca, Mexico (with side trips to Mexico City, Teotihuacan, and Tepotzlan)
  • Study abroad for 4 weeks in Buenos Aires, Argentina (with side trips to Colonia, Uruguay, and Iguazu Falls)
  • Spain for 2 weeks (Barcelona, Girona, Madrid, Sevilla, Granada)
  • Las Vegas
  • Minnesota to Grand Canyon to San Diego to San Francisco to Yellowstone to Minnesota van camping road trip
  • Amsterdam (24 hours only on my way to India)
  • A month in India (Delhi, Pushkar, Jaipur, Agra, Amritsar, Rishikesh, Haridwar, Varanasi, and an elephant sanctuary near Mathura)
  • Van camping in Alaska (Juneau, Haines, Anchorage, Denali, Fairbanks, Valdez, Seward, Arctic Circle)
  • 4 days in Miami
