My name is Marissa. My passion for travel began in the front row of my high school World History class. Mythology, food, adventure, and most of all the people have heightened that passion. I wanted to travel to see the places I read about in my books,—the Athenian Acropolis, the Roman Colosseum, the rolling hills and cliffs of Ireland—but I found so much more. I found two of my best friends and traveling companions. I found an appreciation for getting to know the locals, in addition to admiring the places for their ancient achievements.
I hope to share with you my love for combining history and traveling. I have my B.A in Classical Studies and am currently getting my Masters. I travel any chance I get and one of my favorite things to do while traveling is learning about the history of that country, whether ancient or modern.
