Welcome to The Journey of Christine! I'm Christine and I was born and raised in Houston, Texas. I have an amazing son in middle school, an adorable pup who we think is a mix between an Australian Shepherd and Golden Retriever, and a handsome husband who was born in South Africa but moved to the United States when he was 6 years old.

I grew up playing competitive tennis (Stephen F. Austin State University) but that didn't stop me from falling in love with traveling and photography. For as long as I can remember, I took my camera everywhere with me, from tennis trips to family trips. And now, in my mid-30s, I still have a camera glued to my hands and still dreaming about my next trip. 

I started this travel/photography blog in the fall of 2014 (under a different name) and after a year, I took a blogging hiatus (find out why here). After missing my creative outlet and all the friends I made along the way, I dusted off my blogging hat and in the beginning of 2017, I joined the blogosphere once again.

New around here? Here's a little about me!

I'm left-handed.
My favorite city in the world is London. I have two "aunts" that live there (they are actually my dad's cousins but I call them my aunts) and enjoy visiting them when I can. 
I'm terrified of heights.
Ever heard of trypophobia? Well, I have that as well.
I'm a total planner.
I'm a huge animal lover and had the most amazing time in Africa this past winter! 
On my mom's side of the family, I have 29 first cousins (73 if you include their spouses and children). One of my cousins is pregnant and three others are engaged so our family keeps on growing. 
I have one brother who is currently at grad school at MIT in Boston. He's the smartest guy I know.
I really want to start making travel videos (regularly) and want to get a drone. Here is the video I made of our Africa trip!
I am not a huge fan of cruises, at least Caribbean ones, but I would love to do a river cruise in Europe.

Want to know anything else? Shoot me a message! I would love to hear from you!

Love, Christine
