Karen was born and raised in Los Angeles although she has been traveling the world since she could fit her toes in her mouth. One of her first memories is being pushed in a stroller along a beautiful green and flower covered Austrian hillside. This early taste of adventure and endless possibilities has shaped her into the explorer that she is. Embracing the magical in seemingly simple, every day moments is what has lead her to be a part of the Culture Trip community! Karen loves life and is on a mission to share her joie de vivre spirit with the world!
