"Born to Travel" Pamelita's Profile

Before there were frequent flier miles...

I took my first trip at age 1, and by the time I was 6 I'd racked up quite a bit of mileage flying back and forth between Los Angeles, California and South America, long before anyone thought to keep track.

My family tree is heavy with the fruit of wanderlust: An Italian immigrant who became an award-winning physician in the Lima, Peru of the 1800s. An intrepid Belgian woman who abandoned the comforts of home to follow a Peruvian general to a Chilean border skirmish at the turn of the century. A plucky Syrian girl who left Aleppo in the 1920s to marry a Syrian man twice her age who had emigrated to Lima. A tall, striking couple who abandoned Peru for new opportunities in 1960s Los Angeles.

True to family tradition, I made one attempt to live abroad before I finished college. A stint as a cashier at a grocery store in Geneva, Switzerland left me with the desire to become a career expat...

...and I nearly did, but fate intervened in the form of James, my well-traveled husband.

Our home base is a little beach city in Los Angeles County. We've explored four continents and dream of growing old together in a quaint flat at the foot of Corcovado...or a converted farmhouse in the Umbrian hills...or a pink villa in Corsica...
