Hi, I'm Darby. My interests are in travel, cooking plant-based meals, music of many genres, human equality and environmental sustainability. I also love to write. When I'm not traveling, you can probably find me drinking coffee or riding a bike around town. I love going to new places and learning as much as possible about history and culture. Even more so, I try to learn about and raise awareness to local grassroots efforts in the areas I am visiting. I believe that communities hold the answers to their trials and I seek to support those efforts however I can. My goal is to never stop learning, always checking my privilege and try to make the world a better place.
