One Year Anniversary

One Year Anniversary

I did it! It has officially been one year since I first left the states to embark on this crazy, insane, around-the-world adventure.  To say it is unbelievable that this year has come to an end would be a vast understatement.  It is unfathomable that time can go this fast.  I can't quite wrap my brain [...]

The Goodbye Girl

The Goodbye Girl

Saying goodbye has never been something I was good at.  Yes, it’s hard for everyone.  I know.  But...dare I say it?  I may just take goodbyes harder than the next person.  I dread them.  I have nightmares about them.  I hate them and feel their pain before they even happen. Perhaps it's my abandonment issues...my [...]

I Skipped my Flight…

I Skipped my Flight…

Time to come clean. As some of you know, I decided to forgo my flight out of South Africa which was booked for the 8th of this month.

The Pillow 

The Pillow 

For over six months I've traveled along 14 countries, met countless people, experienced more things than I can list, grown more than I thought possible, and I've taken only a backpack... And my pillow. I've gotten more shit over this "frivolous" item than anything else from people- especially pro backpackers.  "Are you kidding me with [...]

Taxi Cab Confessions

Taxi Cab Confessions

As I roam around meeting people I feel like a sponge- soaking in every little piece of wisdom and inspiration.  Every person I meet is interesting in some way.  Even the ones I have not been particularly fond of... are interesting.  The guy working at the front desk, the woman on the train, the guy [...]

Eat, Pray, Whatever

Eat, Pray, Whatever

Eat, Pray, Love. Surely, you know the book (and movie starring Julia Roberts). The super famous one about the broken hearted woman who traveled the world for one year and found love, peace and carbohydrates? Elizabeth Gilbert's story spoke to me- loudly- just like it probably did for many of you. She inspired me and, [...]
