Greetings globetrotters! I hope everyone had a fantastic summer. This summer Renee and I met up after several years of not seeing each other and were delighted to be joined on our trip to Greece with GT Jersi (Angela) Baker, who resides in Charlotte, N.C. We learned of Angela’s amazing spirit and pizazz while trotting with her this summer. She has an amazing story and journey that we felt needed to be shared with the iluv2globetrot travel community. Check out Angela’s GT of the month feature below and enjoy globetrotters. As always, happy globetrotting.
Can you tell the I Luv 2 Globe Trot community a little about yourself (where are you from, what do you do, where are you currently based, hobbies etc).
