Hi Lonely Planet,
I'm 22 years old and a recent graduate from Indiana University's Geography and Human Environment Interaction BA program. I currently do research on climate change issues within the context of urban livability for The Trust for Public Land in Boston, while also running a small freelance photography business on the side.
I was raised in Massachusetts but consider this entire, wonderful world my home. My latest adventure was backpacking on a shoestring from Guatemala to Costa Rica over the course of a month. I cannot even begin to describe the impact this journey had on my life. Needless to say the Lonely Planet Central America guide was very helpful! Next on my list I'd like to see the Mediterranean, maybe starting in Morocco and ending in Egypt....
Safe travels folks,
