Talk Travel with Elizabeth:
Favorite US City: Over the last few years, it has become a family tradition to travel to Buffalo, New York to watch a game with my family. Ever since then, I’ve fallen in love with the food, atmosphere, and people of Buffalo!
Place You Would Like to Travel: I have always wanted to travel to Poland! I grew up in a largely polish family, and have heard beautiful stories from my great grandparents about it. I’ve also always wanted to travel to Montana and hike through Yellowstone.
Favorite City Abroad: Unfortunately, as an adult, I have not made it back out of the country. First on my list if I do, is Poland or Romania!
