I’m Erika Bisbocci, a travel-obsessed backpacker, flight attendant and returned WorldTeach volunteer, who has done her best to carve out a life on the path less traveled.
Upon graduating from university with a degree in International Studies and minors in Anthropology and Arabic, I bade farewell to the comforts of home and boarded a plane for Namibia, Africa, where I decided to spend a year volunteering through WorldTeach.
Living abroad for an extended period of time has long been a dream of mine, as traveling has been a substantial part of my life from before I could remember. I was only six months old when I received my first passport and since then I have collected stamps from over seventy countries on five different continents. What began as yearly trips to visit family in Italy, soon turned into month-long voyages around Europe, Latin America and Asia with my parents.
These trips taught me a lot about different cultures, traditions and history. Most of all, however, they taught me about myself–about my passions, my priorities and the way I would like to live my life. They instilled in me a love for travel that is at times overwhelming. Hardly a day goes by in which I am not thinking about my next destination.
In short, traveling has become an addiction.
I hope you will follow along on my adventure!
