The rain was coming down in buckets when I arrived at Marriott’s Harbour Lake, A Marriott Vacation Club Resort, in Orlando, Florida today. I was discouraged.

My ten days in Jordan were life-changing. I journeyed to five of my bucket list locations including Petra, Wadi Rum, the Dead Sea, the Red Sea, and Jerash. I hiked, swam, walked, and climbed my way through the country. I rode 4x4s, buses, cars, planes, donkeys, and camels; and I am exhausted.

That’s how I try to spend each day. I find out what I want the most and figure out how to make it happen. That’s what life is all about. We are all capable. Continue reading
My philosophy: the more unrealistic I am with my dreams and goals, the more I’m able to achieve. Since entering the Biggest, Baddest Bucket List contest, I’ve been dreaming about touring around the world and exploring new countries, cultures, and adventures.
