About Me

Hi! I’m Liz and I’m a 20-something year old from Washington, DC. After college, I moved to the city to make an honest living. While I was still a full time “try and and make the rent”-er, I tried to travel as much as possible. If you are interested in reading about where I’ve been you can check out some of my favorite posts and a list of destinations.

After four years, I was ready to try something new. I decided to leave DC and plan my dream trip. Now, in one month, I will depart on my long awaited RTW trip- which i’ve dubbed The “2012 Bird Meets World” tour. Stay tuned for updates as my roommate and I travel through Asia.

Feel free to leave me a comment or contact me or follow me on facebook or twitter.

About L’appel du Vide

There exists a psychological phenomenon in which perfectly sane people, with no desire to die, find themselves faced with a steep cliff and experience a strong desire to leap. To jump from their safe vantage point into the unknown. This phenomenon is so common in fact, that the french have a term for it: L’appel du Vide – Call of the Void.
Most people, thankfully, don’t jump. They stand, face to face with the precipice and inch forward bit by bit as far as they dare. They stretch out their arms, they lean forward, they let the great depth overwhelm them. Then they climb back down the mountain, return to life, and wait until the next time when they can stand, wind in their faces, toes on the edge and wonder “What if?”
