I am living my dream of: 3 L’s (Laura Louise Lane), currently traveling the world, and being married to a man that makes me laugh and allows me to be my sometimes weird self without reserve.
I'm learning how to: live out of a backpack, stay healthy on the road, obtain visas, let go of my preconceived notions of self and others, eating new foods, and learning about other cultures in this wide world we live in! All of these experiences will help me grow as and individual and take care of myself and others while being respectful of our different ways of life.
I enjoy going out with friends and meeting new people, finding great bargains, and challenging myself always. I've been told I pick the "hard" way in life but I like to think I just like to challenge myself and continue growing as an individual.
This blog has changed over time, just as I have. In the past I wrote about my life in Austin but took a break for a while after we moved to Dallas. While in Dallas I obtained my Master's in Public Health and also spent time with our families before we began our world journey. In 2014 we took a quick stint back to Austin for a year where I continued my dreams, finally working as an Epidemiologist for Tuberculosis services in Texas .
In April of 2015, just days before our six-year anniversary, Brent and I embarked on our world tour. I am excited to visit places I've only dreamed of as well as scout for places we may be able to one day live. I keep our travel map up-to-date if you would like so see where we've been and places we've booked to go! The next iteration of my dream is to work overseas as an Epidemiologist or in Public Health in some capacity.
I anticipate this blog will continue to change and grow with me. Maybe one day it will capture my life as a working expat and working in the global public health community!
Love and well wishes to you and the world. If you have questions please contact me!
