Living like a Local in Leeds, England

Living like a Local in Leeds, England

In February, with plans to head back to the states by the end of March, I had about 5 weeks left to explore more of Canada (I was in Montreal), but I was really feeling the need to slow down before beginning the journey home.  The project I worked on in Canada was over and [...]

Finding Bliss in a Blizzard

Finding Bliss in a Blizzard

Note to readers: I'm trying something new.  You can now watch this article in video form on Youtube!  Click and subscribe here. It's below zero degrees outside and I've found myself in Montreal, Quebec, Canada of all places, in the dead of Winter.  I'm looking out the window at white covered everything, wondering how I'll [...]

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 [...]

I've been in Montreal for just over one week and my face hasn't fallen off yet, which continues to shock me.  Colder than any weather I've ever experienced in my lifetime (I'm from California where we just "opt out" [...]

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. Like every other "basic" girl from the states, I watched Eat, Pray, Love years ago (saw it twice in theaters) and was even more inspired to travel than I already had been.  It's hard not to [...]

Happily “Homeless”

Happily “Homeless”

It's funny how it's taken all of 840 days, 4 continents and 31 countries plus a visit to California for certain things to REALLY set in.  Sometimes you're moving so fast you don't realize the full gravity of what you're experiencing.  Have you ever been there?  I have...recently, quite a bit. I've spent many days [...]
