Lia Pontarelli - Living Audaciously

Hi! I’m Lia. I’m currently a 38-year-old living in Iowa. By living audaciously I’m pushing beyond a comfort zone to have those unbelievable experiences many only dare to dream about!

I’ve lived in Iowa for the majority of my life, with the exception of 6 months when I tried moving to Southern California. I didn’t want to be that girl from Iowa who always regretted never moving away, so I left, and I came right back! I love it here!

Oh, the places you’ll go!

However, I love to travel. When I was younger my mother would make sure that my brothers and I got to experience other cultures. She had grown up in Europe, and it was really important to her that we see some of those areas. I stopped traveling for a while, besides the yearly trip to North Carolina or random other state-side trips, as I got older. I just let life get in the way and made other things a priority. Well, enough of that! I want to see the world! A trip to Isla Mujeres and jumping into the ocean with whale sharks truly revived my love for travel!

My Other Loves

While I thoroughly love traveling, there are a few other things I love even more! One of them would be my furbaby, Wrigley. She is my child. There are also 6 children that I get to call my nieces and nephew. While 4 nieces are blood-related, one niece and my nephew are actually my best friends’ children, but they are very much a part of me!
