My name is Stephanie Craig. In 1990, at the age of six, I read my first American Girl Dolls book (it was Meet Felicity). In a rose-pink bedroom in Oklahoma, I learned about what life was like in Colonial Virginia. I was hooked.

Since then, my love of history has been my favorite hobby, leading me to travel all over the world to experience the places and peoples I have read about. I seek out important architecture, artworks, UNESCO World Heritage sites, and monuments-the places that bring history to life.

Through my travels, I have gone from history lover to amateur historian, sharing photographs and stories from far-away places.

To date, I have visited 134 UNESCO World heritage sites spread across 67 countries and territories and located on 5 continents. However, there are many, many more visits to come.

Some of my favorite historic sites:

Since starting this site, I’ve embarked on a few other online adventures. I am the co-author of the website Sofia Adventures, a Balkan travel blog. After living in Eastern Europe for four years, our family moved back to Oklahoma, and I document our adventures in Oklahoma and nearby over on Oklahoma Wonders.

Most recently my fiance and I started The Africa Cookbook to preserve and share his African cuisine with our family.

I know I have many more adventures to come!
