Kelli Mutchler left a small, Midwestern American town to prove that Yanks can, and do, chose alternative lifestyles. On the road for six years now, Kelli has tried news reporting and waitressing, bungee jumping, and English teaching.

Opportunities and scenes for international travel are encouraged on Kelli’s blog.
