“Love, Loss and Passport Stamps” by HMD

“Love, Loss and Passport Stamps” by HMD

I've had many people point out to me that they "can't just hop on a plane and go heal their broken hearts in Italy, Greece or Peru.  Who will watch the kids for God's sake?  Who will pay the mortgage?" I hate the fact that I have been kind of tunnel-visioned as I globe-trotted away [...]

“What Happens When You Travel Alone As a Mother” by Paige McEachren

Having children is life changing. The love you are capable of having for your children is unimaginable. This undying love is what causes many mothers to pour so much of themselves into caring for their family that they forget to do things for themselves.

Returning home after travel brings up many emotions including, but not limited to, angst.  It's all very weird after the dust settles and you've made your initial "rounds" of reunions with friends and family.  People are "super excited your home!" until life goes back to normal and it's business as usual.  You're excited, too, and [...]

“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 [...]

Becoming a Student of Life through Travel

Becoming a Student of Life through Travel

In two and a half years of travel I've met many a lost soul... and even more that had been recently "found." People that travel, like I have, aren't just looking for their next passport stamp.  They're typically on a quest for something greater- something more fulfilling and life-enriching than a global checklist.  Many of [...]
