About Me


Hello! My name is Elisabeth Hurd, but everyone calls me Betty. I am a journalism major at the University of Arizona born and raised in Tucson, Arizona. An avid traveler, I make it my goal to leave town at least twice a month, driving to new and exciting places all around my state and occasionally flying to further destinations. I have a quality where I will see photos and read stories about places I have never been and feel homesick for them. For this reason, I try to travel as much as I can because it is my greatest passion. I am sharing my stories from my study abroad trip with Semester at Sea, a program that will take me to four continents and 11 countries. In my travels around Asia, Africa, and Europe, I am writing travel blogs and taking tons of photos that highlight my adventures. I have a perpetual ache to see every corner of this incredible, beautiful world, and I wish to inspire this quality of wanderlust in others. Cheers!
