Seven years and over two dozen countries later, Aeri Rose is proof that excitement, independence, and discovery await those who are bold enough to say "yes" to life's craziest choices. When not exploring the world with her little grey backpack, Aeri Rose can be found living a nomadic lifestyle traveling the United States as an artist and entrepreneur.

Tip 4: Pack a notebook and pens As you get farther east there are fewer concessions to English speakers. There are fewer signs translated and fewer strangers who might just happen to know some English. Don’t think you can just rely on your trusty cell phone either. You are in Siberia after all! Packing a notebook and pen can help when trying to communicate. Additionally, you may want to jour- nal some of your experiences, and sometimes breaking open the lap- top and furiously typing away just isn’t prudent. As always, pack light and enjoy yourself. Life is an adventure!
