“Travel helped me with my eating disorder” by Lydia Jane Alice

Travelling really opens up your eyes as to how small we are on this big planet. It makes us realise that, in the grand scheme of things, trivial things we worry about at home are truly irrelevant. To me, it has been a fundamental feature in changing my life for the better. When I was [...]

“How Hiking The Colorado Trail Helped This Mom Find Her Way Back Home” by Emilie Sagle

It’s so early. I’m barely awake at 5:00 AM, yet I’m rolling out of bed.  I had the opportunity to sleep-in; My kids are having a sleepover at my folk’s place for a few nights, so I should be having an especially restful sleep.  But I ‘m feeling a little anxious this morning. Because today’s [...]

“I got kicked off a train and unexpectedly found myself in Dijon, France” by Ella Kim

One of the best trips that I ever took was to Dijon, France, although I was really on my way to Italy. I dreamt of eating homemade pasta by the ocean and taking a gondola ride on the canals but ended up in a city that is known for manufacturing one of the fanciest mustards [...]

There were times this year when forgiveness felt like a dirty word. Packed with implications of pain, loss and emptiness, it felt like forgiveness meant I would be condoning whatever [...]

A Panamanian Woman with Third World Problems and First World Happiness

I met the most amazing woman a few days ago in Bocas Town, Panama. It'd been a long few days staring at my computer screen and not interacting with anyone.  I was feeling antisocial- I get like that sometimes.  When I finally emerged from my dark hole of silence, I was hit by blazing sunlight [...]
