I Could Live Here


Do you fall in love with the places you visit? Do you imagine yourself settling down and living like a local? I found myself thinking "I Could Live Here" so often it inspired a life-changing adventure and the story behind my first book.

I Could Live Here


Do you fall in love with the places you visit? Do you imagine yourself settling down and living like a local? I found myself thinking "I Could Live Here" so often it inspired a life-changing adventure and the story behind my first book. 

Why just live in one place when you could temporarily inhabit the world? In my first book, I COULD LIVE HERE, I explore how modern day nomads, like me and my husband, are redefining what home means and how to feel rooted, deeply and firmly, wherever you live.  LEARN MORE>>

My Story


Freedom. Creativity. Contemplation. Mine is the story of a woman discovering herself in the world and finding the language to articulate and share the experience.

My Story


Freedom. Creativity. Contemplation. Mine is the story of a woman discovering herself in the world and finding the language to articulate and share the experience. 

An unlikely wanderer

In 1998, with no qualifications other than a traveler’s eye and a knack for telling a tale, I traded a successful academic career for the wild blue yonder and a new life as an independent travel writer and photographer.

From a handful of assignments to hundreds of adventures spanning the globe, I've turned a passion for exploration into a creative life inspired by a commitment to freedom.   

Together with my husband, Hank Barone, a young-adult, action-adventure author, I am currently living and working in Latin America while I write my first book, "I Could Live Here."

Discover the #1 Website for Experiential Storytelling


Sometimes it's crazy, astounding, amazing, funny, frustrating, and exasperating, but no matter what happens....life is always a trip. 

In 2009, I launched the group travel blog YourLifeIsATrip.com with travel journalist Judith Fein on the belief that other travelers shared our desire to read about real people writing about real life. No top ten lists. No superficial content. Just authentic experiences. Today, we're the #1 website for experiential storytelling and narrative travel writing with hundreds of writers worldwide and each story as unique and original as the people behind them.
