2018 UPDATE: I just moved to southwestern Germany.  A new year, a new adventure.

I’m Caroline, an American living in Istanbul.  I’m a writer, teacher, lifelong book lover, and avid traveler– I’ve traveled on four continents on my own, although these days I usually drag my husband along on my adventures.  I fell in love with traveling when I studied abroad in Italy in 2005 and it inspired me to take trips, both in the US and abroad, whenever I could throughout my twenties.  I moved to Turkey in 2014 and have enjoyed discovering both its tourists attractions and its more hidden nooks and crannies, and I still pack my bags and go whenever possible.

My life is full of takeoffs and landings, or, in my case, meanderings.
