Stacey Ebert is a freelance writer, event planner, blogger, volunteer coordinator, and educator who has traveled to more than 50 countries. She met her Australian-born husband while on a trip in New Zealand, had an international courtship, and later took a 10-month honeymoon to follow the sun around the world. Writing about adventure, journey, and perspective-changing life shifts, she encourages travelers to take the leap, use the world as their classroom, and get outside their comfort zones. She is a former high school teacher, has a Master’s degree in Education, consults on events of all kinds, and has a love of travel, hiking, yoga, dark chocolate, and all things beach-related. She has lived in Long Beach (New York), Melbourne (Australia), and is presently based in San Diego (California).
