I have been to 33 of the United States.
My first venture outside of the U.S. was to visit my sister who was living in Costa Rica (it doesn’t really count because I went with my mom and I was only 15).
I spent three weeks in Finland and Estonia visiting my former teammate and dear Finnish friend Nelli after my freshman year of college.
I lived in Hawai’i during my sophomore year of college.
I traveled throughout Japan, Okinawa and visited South Korea my senior year of college.
