About Me

About Me PhotoHello dear reader, my name is Tara and welcome to my blog!

I named my blog Tara Near & Far because most of my life, I have been and  continue to be on the move:  I work overseas, I grew up abroad, and I’m often flying somewhere new to explore or to visit family and friends. Because of that, one of my favorite pastimes is building a portable life.  Whether that’s through learning new skills or hobbies I can do anywhere, keeping up with my fitness program to maintain my calm, or finding creative ways to keep in touch with loved ones, I love discovering new ways to make myself feel at home wherever I am in the world.

On this blog, I invite you to join me in exploring all these things that excite and inspire while you’re on the go — or just staying put. I’ll come here to share how I’m focusing on the people and things — near and far — that make life beautiful and I hope you do the same.

Thanks for visiting!
