About Emery

Emery has traveled to 17 countries and countless cities to date. She shares her passion for travel with her husband. It's a bonus that her baby daughter finds travel fascinating too! Together, they conquered Mt. Sibayak in Sumatra, Indonesia, cycled for 40 kilometers in Yangshou, China and went on a 5-day expedition in Sri Lanka on long train rides and local buses. She spent two weeks as a volunteer in Rwanda where she realized that it's not how the media portrays it to be. Through travel, she is immersed in a different understanding of the world around her. She finds herself constantly evolving; who she was yesterday, she is no more today and what she didn't have yesterday, she embraces today.
