la turista loca.

My name is Abigail Owens and I live not too far from the beach in South Carolina.  I love it.  Charleston is one of the best cities in the world.  Good food, good people, good fun.

I am a Christian.  I hold to the Five Points of Calvinism and I attend a PCA church.  My parents are strong Christians and I am very thankful to have been raised by them.  They continue to encourage me daily.  I've also been blessed with two younger sisters and one younger brother.

I'm currently studying at the College of Charleston.

My interests vary, but I enjoy playing piano, admiring architecture, watching well-made movies, and reading good books.  From Rocky Balboa to Jane Austen, I find pleasure in many things.

One of my favorite authors, F. Scott Fitzgerald said, "You don't write because you want to say something, you write because you have something to say." I full-heartedly agree and hope my blog reflects this.

As for the name of my blog...
La Turista Loca: I am a crazy tourist.  God has an adventure planned for me, the details of which even I am unaware of.  Life is the beginning of the end.  As Larry Norman put it so nicely, we are only visiting this planet.  As a Christian, I know that my true home is in Heaven with my Lord and Savior.  This life, then, is a way for us to see what a merciful, loving God we have.  I believe that I am traveling through this world by living my life.  This blog is a way for me to share my thoughts that might otherwise go undiscussed.  Of course, since this is a "travel" blog, I will post pictures and stories too.  I hope you may be blessed by reading my blog.

Soli Deo Gloria.
