#ImBornTo Travel the World

As a child, I traveled. Oh boy, did I travel! My dad was an engineer with much-in-demand skills. Basically, he moved to where the work was. Whenever he moved, my sister, mother, and I moved too. I was born in England, but at 4 my traveling began in earnest. I moved to New Jersey at 4. We returned to England for a bit when I was in 2nd grade. But went back to America for 3rd and part of 4th grade. Then it was back to England for the rest of 4th and then 5th grade. Before returning to America for most of my 6th grade year. Phew. Just writing that out makes me exhausted!
Fortunately, from 7th grade through my high school graduation we stayed put in Manchester, England, except for summer vacations in France. For my last two years of high school and first two years of college, my dad worked in Italy, but I never lived in Italy during those years, but did travel often. In fact, it was in Italy that I was bitten by the traveling bug. I still love visiting new places! I couldn’t get enough of exploring new places. My family visited Milan, Venice, Verona, Portofino, Florence, and Pisa in Italy. Lugano, Cervinia, and Grindelwald in Switzerland. Seefeld in Austria. Bavaria and Munich in Germany. And a few others places.
