When did you first catch the travel bug?
Shortly after college I had an opportunity to visit Prague with a friend. I had never been outside the USA. One thing led to another and I ended up staying for 6 months and explored all throughout Europe. I started a small Bed & Breakfast from our flat in Prague to fund my trip. It was an incredible experience and I’ve never been the same since!
