Posted on 4 CommentsPosted in Travel Stories

I try to act cool and put-together, but those who know me know I’m a nerd with no common sense. I’m more like Sheldon than Penny in Big Bang Theory. Killing it with book smarts, no street smarts at all. It’s actually a wonder I’ve managed to travel as much as I have. But I […]
