“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 [...]

What it’s like to Date Around the World

What it’s like to Date Around the World

It always cracks me up how eager people are to hear about my dating life, especially since I started traveling internationally.  I've played coy and kept the juicy stories for "Girls Night" with close friends, but with so many of you asking, let me share a little bit with you- you know, woman to reader.

Four places to Eat, Pray, Love (beyond Italy, Bali and India)

Four places to Eat, Pray, Love (beyond Italy, Bali and India)

There are so many special places on this planet, and I've been fortunate enough to discover many of them.

Lost and Found at Sea- My Experience with Viking Ocean Cruises

Sorry for the overused, hashtag-ery title but it's more than fitting for this post and, try as I may, there's no better way to describe the theme of these past two weeks.  I embarked on a true journey when I got on board the Viking Star and not just one about travel.  It turned out [...]

Heartbreak and Skipped Flights 

Heartbreak and Skipped Flights 

Today I skipped my return flight to Cape Town and boarded a different one instead. If you follow me on social media you probably know where I'm headed...and it's not to return to my ex-boyfriend in South Africa. As you all know, I first traveled to Cape Town as a tourist a year ago, fell [...]
