Travel Locations: Peru, Chile, Argentina, Thailand, Nepal, India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia

Bucherl has chosen to travel through South America and Asia based upon her desire to experience and explore the natural beauty, music, and spirituality of those regions. Specifically, South America (Peru, Chile, and Argentina) represents an area of outstanding natural beauty, as well as the home of music and dance cultures with which she’s fascinated. Asia (Thailand, Nepal, India, Sri Lanka, and Indonesia) promises similarly intriguing natural beauty, and represents the source of spiritual philosophies that have become essential aspects of her life.  She anticipates that all of her experiences – positive and negative – will challenge and broaden her perception of the world and strengthen her respect for its inhabitants.
