About Me

Thank you for visiting my website! Where am I from? I was an “army brat,” which is a child of a parent in the military. I grew up all over the United States, and now I can’t stop traveling! I have a bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications (emphasis in Spanish) from St. Cloud State University and a master’s degree in Public Communication & Technology from Colorado State University. I also recently got married, and now it’s Sydney E. (Thompson) Lutz.

I taught abroad in Quito for a year, where I met some amazing people and improved my Spanish. I now live in Colorado with my cuddly dog and husband. My goal is to live the best life possible even with a lot going on with mental blocks. I enjoy baking, reading, practicing yoga, speaking Spanish, crocheting, doing improv, exploring new places and blogging about health/education/lifestyle.

I have traveled to all 50 states and 6 countries so far (Germany over the holidays last year), and I’m hoping to add more push pins on my world map. Volunteering abroad in Australia for a couple of weeks was an eye-opening, life-changing experience, and I’m thirsty to explore more. I also love geography and learning about other countries, and my writings for GoAbroad have allowed me to pursue that passion.

When people get together to accomplish their goals, the collaboration is worth the positive impact in the end. Feel free to reach out to me on my contact page to connect further!
