My name is Natalie Greenwood and I am from a small town in south Arkansas. I have always wanted to travel and experience different cultures, but it’s hard to turn a dream into a reality when it seems so far out of reach. I was fortunate enough to meet a girl who had the same aspirations as myself. Grace had originally planned this trip as a solo adventure, but, after a series of events in my own life, I suddenly had the opportunity to join her. We are currently traveling around Europe and participating in a program called workaway.

I graduated from the University of Arkansas with a degree in English, Creative Writing in Decemeber 2017. This trip was a great opportunity for me to merge my love of writing and traveling, all while allowing me to keep my parents (and everyone else) updated on our adventure.
