I'm an American who decided to jump off the rat wheel in order to follow his dreams in Spain. I spent the last five years working as an ESL Teacher until recently going full-time with my copy editing, content writing, and translation business 'The English Ninja'. I'm an avid rock climber, and when I'm not busy moving words around on the computer screen, you'll probably find me hiding out in the mountains. For me, a perfect vacation is spent exploring nature's hidden treasures...and sampling pastries from local bakeries in the nearest village!

Dream Vacation

This is always such a tough question to answer! Right now, I would say it's a toss up between a road trip around Switzerland or the western United States (Nevada, Colorado, Utah, Wyoming). The irony of being a long-term expat is that over time your home country starts to feel foreign. After spending so much time away from the states, the idea of going back for vacation sounds just as awesome as visiting any European country!
