Gina Corsiglia was scraped clean from the barnacles of the San Francisco Bay and floated north to Seattle in the early aughts to pursue the fountain of knowledge and/or a college education at Seattle University. Had she been concerned with securing anything that is not an internship she maybe wouldn’t have studied art history and French. Finally disillusioned with the rat race and office politics, Gina quit her job, packed all of her possessions away into storage, and flew halfway across the globe to spend nearly a year lugging an 18 kg backpack around Europe. She hasn't looked back since. Read more about Gina's adventures on her blog beerskittles.com.
