Find your destination

Welcome To My Blog

Welcome to My Snapshot Traveler! The seed for my blog sprouted from my lifelong love of learning about new cultures, making new friends, and experiencing life outside of my home in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. At its core – I love traveling! From the moss-covered stone forts in Ireland to the sandy beaches of Mexico to the cobbled streets of Charleston, SC, every place I visit holds a bit of magic.
