AnnaMarie is an insatiably impassioned travel aficionado with a keen cultural curiosity. Recklessly bold in the defiance of convention, she too-often seeks impulsive adventure. She’s lived in Morocco twice and herded sheep once. At one point, she lived in a remote tribal village of North Africa, and at another, she swam in the Atlantic and Mediterranean simultaneously. She’s camped in the Sahara Desert, sat front row at Fashion Week in Casablanca and solo-backpacked Western Europe in heels. She searches the farthermost corners of the earth for the beautiful, the hysterical and the romantic, sharing everywhere not to go, and everything not to do, if that helps.
