Fun Facts about Haley

Let's get a little informal!

Since I've live in Texas my entire life, my goal after graduation was to travel as much as possible (what are your twenties for?). My latest travel goal is to visit all the National parks across the U.S. So far, I've has hiked the Smokey Mountains, biked the Grand Canyon, and walked through the New Orleans bayous.

Recently, I've traveled across the world for the first time to India where I attended a friend's wedding. After the wedding, some local friends and I took a road trip through Agra to visit the Taj Mahal. We also visited Jodhpur, Rajasthan, Jaipur, Ahmedabad, New Delhi, and Mumbai.

Why Do I travel? I travel to experience other cultures, become more aware of the world I live in, enjoy the beauty of nature, and learn the history of the areas I visit.
