Laura Veariel

As a kid in the Middle East, Laura understood the sense of being a foreigner somewhere. All before she could walk or talk she was familiar with her ears popping on a plane, the sound of prayer call, and the hot sun and dusty sand. She feels fortunate to have experienced the best of both worlds growing up as an expat and creating roots in the States. She loves new experiences that take her out of her comfort zone and her English Bulldog. She subscribes to these three D’s for travel: Destination, Determination, and Deliberation; and you can follow her adventures on Instagram.
