She welcomes any opportunity to practice French and German, and she loves delving into a place’s history and artisanal food scene. A former education administrator and training specialist, Tricia has a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and a master’s degree in international relations. She and her husband, Shawn, married in the ruins of a snowy German castle. They’ve been known to escape winter by basing themselves in coastal Croatia or Southeast Asia.

    1. Thoughtsontheatre – thank you for your kind comment! I love the whimsy of these images… The more I travel, the more I believe that children are pretty much the same everywhere in the world. It seems mischief abounds everywhere!
