Erica From America
This week's featured blog comes from spirited and on-the-go traveler, Erica From America. The blog documents the highlights of her time spent travelling, studying and working abroad. When she was younger, Erica never anticipated wanting to travel the world but at the age of 15, she got a taste of Nicaraguan voluntourism that left a lasting impression on her. Countless travel adventures later, Erica is now studying at Richmond Vale Academy, in St Vincent, Caribbean, where she is learning how to teach sustainable farming. The range of interesting posts, diverse photos, and Erica's vivacious personality make this travel blog an inspiration to travelers everywhere.
Why We Love It
In Erica's own words, "I am not afraid to talk to people, even if I must resort to grunts and charades to get my point across. I love to learn about the world, and first hand experience is my favorite way to do that." This adventurous spirit comes across in every post on the blog, whether she's sharing fun facts about herself (“Elephant” is the first word she learns in other languages!) or learning about the differences at a Caribbean-style funeral. The topics covered on the blog also extend to Erica's experiences teaching in Thailand and in South Korea--with travel tips for prospective travelers who may be considering a similar experience.
There is no doubt that Erica is always on the go, and she admits as much on the blog. This passion for travel is evident in every experience that she documents, and makes Erica From America a blog to return to again and again!
