Thank you for visiting and welcome to my humble nook on the web! My name is Tara and I have chronic Travel Bug Syndrome. Luckily there’s no cure and I can safely say I will have the pleasure of treating it my whole life. I’m also a (self-proclaimed) chocolate connoisseur who loves all things language, food, and people.
The Itch began with family road trips across North America. All symptoms escalated when I was 14 after a 2-month European family odyssey. After university, I leapt across the pond to live in Ireland for a year I won’t soon forget…despite many a pub night!
A few years later, work brought me to live on Jeju-do, South Korea. There, I began my first blog, la tour à l’étranger, to keep friends and family in the loop. Fast forward to now. This cozy nook in the interweb has new purpose, built on four components:
- To connect you to the people and businesses around the world that I think you’d love to meet
- To connect you to faraway traditions, history, and landscapes
- To connect you and your experiences to new perspectives, moments, and treasures
- To connect you with the words we use in ways you never realized
Stay tuned for new language and tutoring additions coming soon!
Thank you for joining me!
Yours in Adventure,
