Welcome to Mini Josie's Travel Log! Here you can read up on all of her adventures at each of her stops and see where she is now. :)

Quick History: I am a first year medical student (at the time of typing this), and I also have bad wanderlust so being stuck in school under such high pressure study situations is very trying for me. Then in Jan 2014, I decided that if I couldn't travel while trapped in school, there's no reason why Josie can't travel in my place and visit all the cool places I'd like to go. Hence, traveling Josie was born! I plan to have her travel for the next 4 years (until I graduate), and hopefully when she returns at the end of that time, she'll come back with a journal chock full of excitement and lots of awesome photos of her all around the USA and the world! ^_^
