Tweet From the moment I saw pictures of Pamukkale, I was excited to visit. The World Heritage site in southwestern Turkey means “cotton castle” for the terraces made from carbonate minerals. You can see the white pop out against the otherwise brown and green landscape from miles away. It’s also home to the ruins of […]

Tweet If you’re planning your first trip to Europe or your Grand Tour of sorts, you have a lot of options for the best ways to see Europe. Each option benefits a different type of traveler, whether you’re traveling alone or with friends, on the cheap or splurging, and planned out or winging it. While […]
TweetThis is the second installment in a series about my experiences traveling through Turkey with BusAbout. For part 1, which covers the overland Turkey Adventure, see this post. Before I even thought about traveling overland through Turkey, I knew I wanted to sail there. I had heard about the Sail Turkey trip that BusAbout offered […]
Tweet When I was planning my trip for this season, I knew I wanted to go to Turkey but didn’t know how to go about it. This was another trip where I felt more comfortable joining a tour rather than traveling alone. Once I saw that BusAbout, one of my favorite tour companies, offered a […]

TweetI am now a quarter century old. This is old news, as it happened back in July. But a lot has been going on in my life these past few months. I’ve started to get consistent freelance writing gigs. I was a bridesmaid in my best friend’s wedding. It may be a quarter life crisis, but […]
Tweet I used to get excited about telling people about my travels in daily conversation. These days, when people ask what I do, I rarely mention my blog or travels, but rather say, “this and that,” and describe my string of temporary jobs. I’m proud of my travels, so why I am I shying away […]
Tweet Many “independent” travelers are immediately turned off by the word tour. They picture large groups huddled around a tour guide with an umbrella or worse, a portable microphone, spouting out facts about whatever random attraction they’re standing in front of. They picture fanny packs and knee high socks and massive tour buses. The hear […]
Tweet If you’re visiting the United States for the first time, you might skip Washington DC in favor for the big spots like Los Angeles, San Francisco, Las Vegas and New York. But it’s a surprisingly budget-friendly American destination, as I recently found out on my #Tweet2Toronto journey. I hardly spent any money on my […]
