Hannah was born with the travel bug. A daughter of an adult third culture kid and a self-described gypsy, she has visited over 50 countries and lived on four continents. She met her partner at a Halloween party in New Delhi, India while she was leading a group of students in Incredible India. A year later she moved to Delhi to live with him and a year and a half later they re-entered the US to spend a year in DC, a new city for Hannah.
