Meet the Teacher

Welcome! My name is Natalie Hayes. I was born and raised in Texas, where I met and married my high school sweetheart. We have a little Westie puppy that we spoil rotten.

By day, I teach 3rd grade in Oklahoma. By *any other time of the day*, I am a travel enthusiast who is itching to get back on a plane and explore. I save and plan throughout the year to travel and refresh my soul. I graduated college with a Social Studies degree, so my love of history and culture are fueled even more through travel. This site is a way for me to feed my wanderlust, share my experiences and some travel tips, keep my historical research fresh, and hopefully inspire others to get out there and explore the world.
