Tweet Something I’ve struggled with for as long as I’ve been traveling is having it all: both a close relationship with my friends and family and the thick skin required to travel the world solo. I find myself justifying my extended jaunts because “no one really notices when I’m not there” and that I’m not […]

Tweet When I decided to add Darwin to my itinerary, I immediately started looking for tour companies that led trips to the national parks, Kakadu and Litchfield. There are lots of tour companies that range in levels of luxury and in length of trips, but many didn’t operate during the rainy season at all. Thankfully, […]
Tweet Australia makes me do stupid adventurous things. If I can say one thing about my time spent in Australia, both in 2011 and now in 2014, is that it’s been exciting. It started with sleeping in the open in the Outback with dingoes roaming around nearby. Then the riding a motorcycle through rural Queensland. And […]
Tweet I’m always looking for unique local experiences when I travel and my trip to Melbourne was no different. While I had some bad luck the last time around, I was excited to try again and see the city in a different way. When I read about Melbourne Urban Adventures’ nighttime kayaking tour of the […]
Tweet When planning my trip back to Sydney, I knew I wanted to take Sammi to the Blue Mountains for a day hike. She’s the outdoorsy one of the three of us, plus I wanted her to see the famed Three Sisters. We looked at a number of options, but really wanted the flexibility of […]
TweetI’ve told you all where I’m going, but there’s so much that goes into a trip like this. Traveling for three months means you have to be prepared for anything and the places I’ll be visiting need visas and vaccinations. This trip has been two years in the making, so now it’s time to finalize […]
TweetI alluded to an upcoming trip to Australia and Asia when I talked about my upcoming year in travel, but now it’s official. I’m going back to Australia. It’s a day I’ve been thinking about ever since I left Sydney on December 1, 2011. And this time, I’m taking my sister Sammi along with me. […]
TweetA man chases a green flash, bounding through the forest. He doesn’t let the iguana out of his sight and doesn’t want to miss the chance for a nice dinner, as it is a common source of protein in this part of Mexico. It slithers through the leaves quickly, but the man won’t be outsmarted […]
Tweet We all have one (or many) places we’ve always dreamed of going or experiences we want to try. It’s the picture framed in our bedrooms, our screensaver on our computers or the “most pinned” image on our Pinterest boards. It seems like something you will do “someday,” when the time is right. But if […]
Tweet I’ve been skinny for most of my life until the last four or five years. I developed cushioning in places I never had it before, namely on my hips. I’m not overly self conscious about my appearances, but I certainly think I have work to do in terms of getting in shape. I’m not […]
