About Me

Hi, I’m Aleta.  Wanderlust is real. My ultimate travel goal is to visit all 50 states and all 7 continents.  The thrill of stepping into a world so different or if it turns out not so different from my own is the best feeling in the world.  The inspiration for my goal came to me as the more I ventured out, the more I thought I just want to see it all.  I love lists and organization so I started mapping and charting my adventures and checking places off.  I hope to complete in the next 5 years.

I was born and raised in Southern California and I currently live in the Bay Area.  My family has always traveled but usually just visiting family in other states.  I was well into my adulthood when I discovered the joy of traveling for pleasure.  It changed my life.  I will rearrange anything to go on a trip.

My other major passion is art.  I love color, any type of design, and anything crafty.  I'm a DIY gal so I'm always working on sometime. 

I can tell the instant I get to a place if I'm going to like it.  My instant favorites are Paris, Stockholm, New Orleans and Biloxi.  I visit these over and over again in between my other travels.

I make my living as a finance professional and consultant and I also dabble in graphic design.  I use my extra $ to buy pretty things and travel.
