I’m Michelle, a twenty-some year old social worker, writer, and wanderer. Whirlwind Travel is a little piece of my heart that has grown since my first backpacking trip five years ago. It has become much more to me than simply sharing the best activities, most delicious food, and greatest travel accessories – although those are great too. This has developed into a piece of me that is filled with the highs and lows that come with traveling the world.
I aim to share with you the beauty that the world has to offer in the nature that creates it and the individuals that inhabit it. I want you to experience the depth of the ocean with me, the summits of volcanoes, the tuk tuk rides, the missing passports and the international friendships. I want you to come with me as I climb to the top of towers and castles in the United Kingdom, taste the food in Italy, swim the sea in the Caribbean, and promote cruelty free animal tourism in Southeast Asia.
I am a believer that we can take ourselves anywhere in the world if we wish it and that by traveling, we unite people of all races and beliefs into a closer world-family unit. I believe that the best way to live is by fueling your heart and energy with all the things that bring you joy and passion. I strive to surround myself with people and experiences that inspire me and to live my life in a compassionate way. I am in awe with the world around me and that feeling of awe, inspiration and compassion is what drives me forward.
