About TADA

Hello! My name is Andele. 

I am a wife, mother of two, dance instructor, choreographer, and lover of all things travel…oh, and art…I love beautiful art. I have found so much joy in traveling the world! I am always dreaming about new adventures, where they’ll take me and what I’ll learn in the process. I love sharing my travels, with hopes that some of my experience will be useful to some of you. I hope to encourage others to travel and explore more of this beautiful world that we all share!

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 really enjoy traveling with the hopes to find out where the locals go eat, explore, and do life! I feel you can get a better sense of the place your traveling to by experiencing the local life. Although, being a bit touristy is okay sometimes too!  

Why the name?

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, some of you 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!
