About Rachel Routier

Once the taste of travel was in my blood, I couldn't stop. It started with Ireland, the Bahamas, the Keyes, Mexico, Thailand, and who knows where to next. Of course, traveling would be dreadful without my faithful companion, a book. I'm just about to receive my masters from the University of Northern Iowa in English: Creative Writing. Adulthood sounds all right, but I'm more excited about that eight letter word: vacation. I'm ready for my next adventure in the world of adults, as well as in traveling .
