Meet Andrea, a school teacher who's traveled to 72 countries and counting! She doesn't come from a wealthy family and her work doesn't pay for her to travel. So what's her secret? Watch this short and inspirational video to find out. You can also watch and share this video on Facebook and YouTube.

I met Andrea in Medellín Colombia earlier this year and was fascinated by her life. She proves that when there's a will, there's a way, especially when it comes to traveling the world. Our paths crossed again in Quito Ecuador several months later and I convinced her to help me put together this video and share her inspirational story. I hope this video helps spread the message that if she can do it on a teacher's salary, then it's time for YOU to travel the world!
