Hello, my name is Pamela Jacobs, and I’m a travelholic. As a travel editor, nature lover, foodie, and consummate globetrotter, my official street address is in New York City, but in my heart, I am a citizen of the world. In many ways, I believe in the cliche (and the Disney song) – it is, indeed, a small world, after all – but I also know that there is a big world out there, and I want to see it all. I truly enjoy nothing more in life than to go somewhere new and wander through the streets (or dirt roads or blue lagoons), seeing, tasting, touching, and smelling new things along the way. The fun doesn’t end there, though; as a lover of words and an enthusiastic writer, I then get to re-live my adventures and share them with people through my travel articles (many of which I force upon friends and family on a daily basis). This leads us to this forum, a place where I can share my travel stories with someone other than my mother, who believes I am the next Hemingway, but she’s biased.
Lust, one of the seven deadly sins (and many people’s favorite one), is defined as: a) An overwhelming desire or craving;
b) Intense eagerness or enthusiasm. This, along with words like passion, excitement, and even addiction, describes my feeling about travel. In fact, I love the word “wanderlust.” It’s one of my favorites. Of course, the other deadly sins are relevant as well: I travel with intense GLUTTONY (five course meals, chocolate overdoses, wine-filled extravaganzas): I am GREEDY for more trips; I am ENVIOUS of people who have been to places I haven’t yet visited; and the list goes on…
In short, I am a PROUD travel addict whose intense desire to wander knows no bounds.
Here, I aim to explore my passion, share my experiences, present my opinions, and constantly update fellow globetrotters on what’s new, hot, and relevant in the world of travel.
