Andrea Hi, my name is Andrea. I am a senior at the University of Florida. I have designed this site for my class, Communication on the Internet.

I was born in the Philippines. My mom and I moved to Auburn, AL when I was a baby to live with my dad who had come to the United States a few years earlier. When I was five, my family packed up and moved to another college town: Gainesville, FL. I have been in Gainesville ever since. I've graduated from Gainesville elementary, middle and high schools. Soon, I will graduate from the University of Florida with cum laude in public relations.

Ever since I was little, I've had a passion for drawing. Now that it's 2006, my drawing skills have transformed into more of a design interest. I like tinkering with programs like Photoshop and InDesign (although, I must confess, am not very good). I also enjoy going to the gym. It's a nice release from a hard day's work. I like to take classes like dance and pilates. When I have the time, I like to play the piano. For thirteen years, I was trained in classical music.

Because I have lived in the same town for seventeen years, it's nice to have a getaway once in awhile. I'm not the jetsetter that I hope to be, but I've done my fair share of travelling. I've made this site to share my experiences with you and hopefully give some insite into traveling the globe.

So, feel free to browse around. Hopefully, you'll learn a couple of things about making your way around the world.
