Aubrey took her first plane ride at the age of four months and has been traveling ever since. Family vacations have taken her to Fiji, Denmark, England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, France, and Holland.
What has always been a hobby has become a necessity in the past years, as her parents sold their home in San Diego and have been living abroad for the past few years. Family visits and holidays have taken her to São Paulo, Brazil, and Calgary, Canada, with undecided destinations waiting in the future.
To celebrate her 30th birthday, Aubrey took a week-long trip to New Orleans, where she reveled in the beignets, street corner brass bands, and surprise second lines. Today, weekend trips to visit family and friends are the majority of her travel experiences, but she makes it a priority to get at least one international trip in every year. She visited her beloved London in May 2018, and has added to her list of intended destinations Central America, Morocco, and Bali.
In 2005, World Youth Day saw Aubrey in the Netherlands, Italy (her favorite town was Assisi), and Germany..
During her time studying abroad in 2009, Aubrey made the most of living in London, and used Heathrow Airport and the trains as her launching points to Wales, Ireland, Scotland, Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Turkey, and France. During her sojourn abroad, Aubrey documented her travels and insights in a travel blog entitled "Aubrey Wanderings."
A month after graduating from LMU, Aubrey set off on a solitary adventure to Greece, where she lived in an apartment in Eleusina, a suburb of Athens. During her time in Greece she interned for the Initiative for Heritage Conservancy (IHC). The following summer, Aubrey once again jetted off for Eleusina, this time to take part in a summer graduate session focused on the digitization of the ancient site of Eleusis using high definition 3D laser scanning technology. She ventured out more during this trip, spending more time in Athens and branching out to the greater Peloponnese and the islands.
Travel is a vital facet in Aubrey's life: through travel, she finds links with people the world over that she would find in no other way. Whether by plane, train, car, or on foot, she seeks every opportunity to discover new horizons.
