Hello! My name is Andele. When I meet new people I tell them my name is pronounced like Adele, the artist, but with an “n”. When and if I ever meet Adele, I am going to thank her for becoming a famous singer/artist because she has made my introductions so much easier;-)
I am a wife, mother of two, dance instructor, choreographer, and lover of all things travel…oh, and art…I love beautiful art. I find joy in traveling and I’ve decided to journal about my travel experiences. Who knows, maybe some of my tips and advice will be useful to some of you? Or maybe you will learn from my experiences what not to do on your travels?!
I’ll never forget the feeling I had when I finally saw the Eiffel Tower – the butterflies I felt in my stomach. Something had happened to me. I was bitten by the travel bug and couldn’t wait to see more of the world. I knew right then that the idea of seeing the world wasn’t just an idea anymore, it could be my reality! Just like CS. Lewis said “You are never to old to set another goal, or to dream a new dream”.
I am learning that travel can be a lot like a choreographed dance, hence the name of my blog “TADA”. Let me explain the analogy! A lot of time goes into laying out your exact goals for a trip: what to see, where to stay, how you’re going to get there, what to pack – all to try to create the “performance” of a life time! Other trips are more like a freestyle or ad-lib dance – a spontaneous trip on a whim or dropping your schedule to do something that you found that looks more appealing a long the way. Whether successful or disastrous, I’m excited to share all of these special memories that I have made along my journey of experiencing life in other places! Maybe it will just be a documentation of events or maybe, just maybe, someone else will enjoy or even be inspired to see travel in a different way.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about my experiences with travel. I hope that you enjoy them even a little bit as much as I have and we can “dance” through some of these experiences together!

One of my talented friends took these photos of me for one of her class projects.
