About me

I was raised in the US, but live in the Netherlands. I quit my work as a teacher to travel as much as possible and blog at Rachel's Ruminations.

What is your favorite travel destination?

anywhere I haven't been before!

Where do you dream of traveling to?

Three words that describe why we should travel?
