Travel Writing Round Up [March 2015]

Over the last nearly four years that I’ve been offering the Travel Writing Round Ups, I’ve been asked about why I started them. It began as a way to show that there are travel writing opportunities that pay, not just the Huffington Post “pay for exposure” model. I’ve received a lot of great feedback (and […]

Photo Friday: Hilton Head Island, SC

My four years living in Charleston meant I never went to any other beaches. And why would I? I could be laying on the white sand of Sullivan’s Island within fifteen minutes of leaving my house.

Scenes from Rural Kentucky

As much as I’m a city girl, sometimes it’s nice to get out into nature. This was certainly the case during my trip to Kentucky back in November. Most of our visit was spent in the city of Lexington, but the final day brought us to the Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill in nearby Harrodsburg. The […]

#JustOneRhino: Why It Matters

Photos from the Morgan Library and Museum

Every trip to New York, I try to build in at least one day of exploring. I lost my day off this trip due to the snowstorm, but I woke up early before I flew home so that I could visit the The Morgan Library & Museum, which I’d read about on my friend Christine’s blog. […]

Traveling with Food Sensitivities

For the past year, I’ve been nearly completely dairy free. I’d heard that eliminating it from my diet could help with my eczema, which has grown worse over the last two years, especially made worse by weather, stress and other factors. I first noticed the flare ups in Australia and they came up again while […]

My Go To NYC Restaurants

If there’s one American city I’ve been to more than any other (that I haven’t lived in), it’s probably New York City. In the last few years, I’ve gone every six months and have my own little home in Hell’s Kitchen, particularly the few blocks between my hotel and the Javits Center. One of the […]

A City Girl’s Favorite Rural Experiences

I may have grown up in the suburbs, but I’ve always been more comfortable with the anonymity of cities over the wide open spaces. But my grandparents moved to the country when I was young and regular visits to see them started to make me comfortable with that environment. In my travels, I try to […]

There are so many great things about traveling alone. It leaves you open to possibilities, changes in your plans and new friendships. It teaches you a lot about how you handle situations and what you’re capable of. Some of my most rewarding travel experiences have been when I was solo. But there are a few […]
