My Favorite Places to Eat, Sleep and Beach in Bocas Del Toro, Panama

I am just a Hippie Island girl at heart, and nothing has ever made that more apparent than my stay in Bocas del Toro, Panama this month.  My heart felt so full as we first arrived on the Caribbean side of the mainland in Almirante.  It was the first time I'd seen the Caribbean!  We hopped into a long tail boat that reminded me of the ones I became so accustomed [...]

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 lately letting the fact that I am actually homeless mentally "marinade."  I knew this all along...sort [...]

Unforeseen costs of long-term travel (and why I don't care)

Part 1: American Wino in Africa (and five South African wineries not to miss)

I'll admit it, I have "wino" in my blood, and sometimes it shows- particularly during my time in South Africa. Myself, my boyfriend and my cousin (who came all the way from Louisiana to visit!) all enjoying our  4th- maybe 5th, who knows!- glass of wine under the South African sun.  Life is good in Cape Town! If you follow me on Instagram, you know I love a good [...]

Weekends away on the Western Cape (and how to satisfy a grounded traveler) 

I have to admit...after traveling around the world the past year and a half, constantly being on the go and experiencing newness, I have found myself addicted to the thrill of moving around.  It's a high unlike any other that brings on a special type of bliss.  Travel is- among a million other things- addicting. After staying so long in one country I find myself pining to see/do/experience more. Often, I've missed [...]
