Travel far enough, you meet yourself” — David Mitchell
Tyler Black was born and raised in eastern Pennsylvania and graduated with a degree in business and a minor in Spanish from East Stroudsburg University. He traveled a lot as a kid and loved every minute of it. Yet the thought of living abroad seemed like a wacky idea to him!
That is, until he studied abroad for a semester in Córdoba, Spain in 2014 where Tyler became infatuated with the language, the culture, and the people. He learned so much each day and made lifelong friends. Tyler’s whole worldview changed and he knew he had to go back.
So, in 2015. Tyler moved to Spain to teach English. He spent one year in a town called Badajoz in the wild west of Extremadura, and another year in Madrid. During this time, Tyler visited dozens of cities and towns within Spain and traveled to 11 countries.
Taking this plunge was the best decision of his life, except for the fact that he had now become addicted to seeing more and more. His wanderlust remains unsated. Tyler has now been on four continents with the hope of setting his feet on all seven one day.
Tyler resides in Pittsburgh, PA where he enjoys watching sports, going to concerts, and exercising. Due to COVID_19, Tyler has had to put his career as a Travel Consultant on hold, but has turned this negative into a positive by throwing himself into all things Dreams Abroad.
