Hi I’m Meredith! You can call me Mere. I’m a nerd, I know.
Read Travel Become is my little home on the Internet where I share about the transition to life overseas, and life in general in Lima, Peru. You’ll find posts about books, trips, and things I’ve learned about life as an expat in Peru.
I’m married to this handsome man, and am so excited to live life together! You can read our love story here, and read about our Peruvian Civil Ceremony here. We both also blog over at Image in Peru, so check that out too!
One of my favorite trips ever was to Machu Picchu in 2013! It was unforgettable. I’ve spent the past two years traveling around Peru as well, and that has been amazing. Peru is full of beautiful sites besides Machu Picchu, and I have to say that the high country (Ancash area) and the jungle are my favorite places! When I’m stateside, I love traveling to State Parks and checking out spots in my hometown of Durham, NC.
Although I have a degree in Linguistics & Spanish, my real passions are helping others and traveling. I’m currently a high school English teacher, and an English Grammar tutor. I’ve always enjoyed teaching because I enjoy helping people. People are one of my passions, and I love meeting new people!
Some of my favorite things, in no particular order- Peru, coffee, the Durham Bulls, helping others, languages, sunshine, word searches, rainstorms, thrift stores, hiking, adventures, Spanish, sunrises & sunsets, volunteering.
Join me as I record life’s adventures!
