“Travel helped me with my eating disorder” by Lydia Jane Alice

“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 [...]

“How traveling redefined my priorities and outlook on life” by Hayley Jones

“How traveling redefined my priorities and outlook on life” by Hayley Jones

I can never remember a time growing up when I had a clear focus of what I wanted to do with my life.  My brother and I were very different in that way!  He was exceptionally focused and knew from a very young age that he wanted to be an entrepreneur.  Now at the young [...]

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. [...]

Ending 2017 with Forgiveness

Ending 2017 with Forgiveness

As we all turn introspective and reflect back on 2017, I'm lingering on a single word that holds more weight than I can bare... Forgiveness. There were times this year when forgiveness felt like a dirty word. Packed with implications of pain, loss and emptiness, it felt like forgiveness meant I would be condoning whatever [...]

A Panamanian Woman with Third World Problems and First World Happiness

A Panamanian Woman with Third World Problems and First World Happiness

I met the most amazing woman a few days ago in Bocas Town, Panama. It'd been a long few days staring at my computer screen and not interacting with anyone.  I was feeling antisocial- I get like that sometimes.  When I finally emerged from my dark hole of silence, I was hit by blazing sunlight [...]

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 [...]

“You don’t have to go abroad to experience travel” by Toni Elston

“You don’t have to go abroad to experience travel” by Toni Elston

I have been unable to travel the world as I would like to yet, but I can still say, without a doubt, traveling has been my saving grace. Growing up, most of the traveling I did was with my mom to whatever base she was living on- my mom was in the military but I wasn’t with her all the time. I think that’s where my love for travel and exploring comes from. Being able [...]

Can travel heal depression?

Can travel heal depression?

  Throughout my travel journey, from inception of the idea to booking the ticket and following through to now, I have had my fair share of crazy looks from people.  I've experienced judgement on judgement in all forms, coupled with praise.  Like all other things in life, you take the good with the bad, right? [...]

Don’t be afraid to be a Black Sheep if it means following your dreams 

Don’t be afraid to be a Black Sheep if it means following your dreams 

Isn't it funny how deep conversations can get at your hair or nail salon, ladies?  It's always been an interesting concept to me- the whole "tell a stranger your whole life story" thing- and never is that idea more prevalent for women than at their salons.  This concept applies to taxi drivers and bartenders too- [...]
