I’m the first to admit that I’m not a runner. I don’t even really like exercise, but I do my best to keep myself in shape. So when I got the idea to do a half marathon a few years ago, it seemed like something distant and in the future. But my friends finally talked […]
Five years. 60 months. 1,825 days. This is the time that has passed since I sat at my desk in my Charleston apartment and typed out my first post on my recently created Blogger site. Looking back on those posts, I feel so silly, as they’re nothing more than photos and typed journal entries from […]
I’d been traveling overland around Turkey for over a week and was constantly surprised at how much I was enjoying myself. I’d gotten to know my fellow travelers and we seemed to be getting along. As we drove further and further away from Istanbul, I was falling more and more in love with the country. […]
In 2012, I had the pleasure of interviewing one of my travel idols, Rick Steves. Today I’m pleased to interview his son, Andy Steves, who has become a travel expert in his own right with his company Weekend Student Adventures. He organizes tours for study abroad students and travelers in Europe. What made you want […]
Mexico is to me like Bali is for Australians and pretty much everywhere warm in Europe is for Brits. It’s an easy and cheap vacation spot that is commonly ruined by tourism. But there’s plenty of beauty in it. In fact, many of my travel blogger colleagues have made their homes in the area because […]
If you saw the last few editions of Travel Writing Round Up, welcome back! There are a lot of great opportunities this month, so I hope you will take full advantage of them. A lot are repeats from last month as well, but new posts are denoted with stars. I have checked all the links to […]
I’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 […]
I 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. […]
I’ve never been a fan of big cruises because I always wish I was spending time at my destination rather than out at sea. They don’t allow for much independent travel, apart from excursions. But my most recent trip may have changed my mind, as everyone books a cruise vacation for different reasons. Some people […]
A 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 […]
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 you […]
If you follow me on Instagram, you’re probably confused as to why there is a picture of snow followed by a picture of the beach. I had been back from New York for a little more than 48 hours when it was time to pack up and head out again. My mom, a school teacher, […]
