Tweet I had no idea how I would be able to top 2011. I was in Australia for crying out loud. I did everything to the extreme, from bungy jumping to scuba diving. How could I possibly keep up that momentum in 2012? I wouldn’t say 2012 topped 2011, but I sure as hell tried. [...]

Tweet Sometimes you just can’t win. Your train is late. The hostel loses your booking. Your bag gets stolen. It starts raining on your walk to the hostel. Nothing seems to be going your way and you want to curl up in a ball and ignore the world. These days don’t stop happening when you [...]
Tweet I’m interrupting the (out of order) Europe posts for something a little more personal. For the last few months I’ve been going through my own personal drama. I went from seeing and talking to someone every day for almost two years to completely cutting them out of my life. I tried to act like [...]
Tweet For the last three years of my life, I’ve worked in the hospitality industry. Hotels, restaurants and bars have been my life when I wasn’t traveling and even when I was. I like working in hospitality because the jobs are easy to find in between my various jaunts around the world. I like meeting [...]
TweetThroughout my travels, I’ve learned that sometimes it’s not about keeping things as cheap as possible. It’s the experiences, not expenses that you remember years later. Some travel splurges are worth making. While I may stress at the time about adjusting my budget for those tours, accommodations or meals, I am always glad I did [...]
Tweet One of the problems with being a sketchy flaky “free spirit” like myself is that you find yourself having difficulty making deep connections with others. I try not to get too close to people because I know one of us, probably myself, will eventually leave. I know a lot of people living in every [...]
Tweet I’ve long considered Charleston more of my “home” than Atlanta. While I was raised in Georgia, Charleston is where I did most of my growing up and what made me into the person I am today. It’s where I learned to live with others, where I balanced work and play, where I found out the [...]
Tweet I read a post on Wandering Earl a while back about how he’s been able to travel for the last 12 years almost continuously and my friend Margo just reminded me of it. So how have I been able to afford to travel? In most people’s terms, I can’t. I’m not a trustafarian with parents bankrolling [...]
Tweet The EasyJet Inspiration Initiative offers a great concept, asking travel bloggers what our travel inspirations are. I was nominated by Heather of There’s No Place Like Oz, whose blog was a major source of inspiration for me when I was planning my year in Australia. I have an inspiration board in my room where I tack up [...]
Tweet As I mentioned when I was talking about my anxiety, I’ve used alcohol as a way to suppress it for entirely too long. I don’t drink that much anymore, but I definitely spend too much money on it. I’ve thought about taking a break from drinking for almost a year now, ever since I [...]
