North America

Having lived in the United States for the majority of my life, North America will always be my home. Aside from a summer internship in New York City, I’ve either lived in West Virginia or Florida, and now I divide my time between Wheeling and Miami.

Naturally, these two cities will be featured frequently on this blog.

I’m a fierce defender of Appalachia since that’s where I was born and raised, and I firmly believe this massive region does not receive enough positive attention these days. Whether you’re interested in walking tours to celebrate Harpers Ferry’s history or hiking trips on West Virginia’s rolling hills, there’s tons to do in the region. And I’m here to talk about it all!

As for Miami, that’s a whole otra cosa. I’m a recent transplant to the Magic City, and I’m still obsessed with prime Cuban coffee and people-watching on Lincoln Road. I’ve spent the past few weeks trying a bunch of random activities in different parts of town, so this part of the blog will expand as my comfort with the city grows. I can say with zero hesitation, though, that I’ll assuredly be discussing public transportation and Miami’s general obsession with insanely impressive cars. Count on it.

Have any recommendations about either of these locations — or about nearby towns or attractions? Let me know! I’m always eager to explore more of my own backyard.
