Dee’s Story

Hi All! My name is Dee Serkin and I am an American Expat living abroad. I lived in Albania for almost 2 years and just recently relocated to the Yucatan Penisula of Mexico. My travel adventures started when I was six years old when my parents took me to Greece, my family’s native land. When I was 12, I began spending my summers in Greece at summer camp. At 12, this seemed like a punishment….. away from my friends, missing out on all the summer fun at home. But, by the time I was 16, I knew that traveling and living abroad would become my life path. It was a dream worth pursuing and here I am! Over the last 20 years, I have had the privilege to travel to 51 countries on six continents with many more on the ole bucket list. ToTravel-istoLive was born from those travel experiences and is brought to you with love and dedication!

Why I Travel?

Travel exposes us to different cultures and gives us the freedom to explore and learn. I have seen some amazing things, met amazing people, and have made memories to last a lifetime.

I believe the idea that sticks out most in my mind as a result of my travels is that no matter where you are, what you are doing, no matter your economic status, your nationality, religion, as a global and mobile society when it comes right down to it, we all just really want the same thing……. we want happiness, a roof over our heads, food in our bellies, we want safety. I have been to some very impoverished countries as well as some very affluent destinations and it’s the same desire expressed to me by many. The scenery, the food, and the colors might be different, but the same desire resonates.

I kindly ask that you visit my site often. I encourage you to leave feedback. But, the kindest thing you can do for me, but more importantly, for yourself, is to travel your dreams. Make those memories and eat that food, drink that wine and absorb this wonderful world we live in! Live Mallory’s Dream!
