Spring in Austin is a real treat. As you guys already know from my monthly news post, I was fortune enough to spend part of my spring break in the artsy, fun, and vibrant capital of Texas. Despite some, erm, erratic weather, spring in Austin was an awesome choice for me, because it served as a reminder […]
Argh, you guys, full disclaimer … this wasn’t an easy post to write, even if the title “solo travel helped my anxiety” is a positive one. I value honesty on this blog, because I truly want to help others and cut through all the fluff. “Keeping it real” is a code of honor in New […]
As some of you already know, Canada’s beautiful national parks are free in 2017. So, if you’ve always wanted to visit Canada, now’s the time to pack your hiking gear, book your plane tickets, and experience the trip of a lifetime. Additionally, Canada is an awesome destination for solo female travelers for many reasons. I took […]
March Highlights Usually March is my LEAST favorite month of the year. Why do I hate on March so much? Oh, let me count the ways, darling. No school breaks (at least not this year – Easter’s in April), daylight’s saving time (I wake up at 5:30; I don’t need darkness in the morning), and […]
You know what, I don’t want to sound arrogant, but I’m pretty damn cool. Despite struggling with anxiety on a regular basis, I still push myself to the furtherest limits. I, especially, like to stretch my mental boundaries when I arrive in a new exciting location. For example, I’ve paraglided off mountains in Slovenia. I’ve snorkeled in frigid waters […]
St. Patrick’s Day is today! Exciting, huh? If only I didn’t have a million inches of snow outside my window and could actually go to a parade, but oh well. I’ll live. Instead of wearing green and cheering in the streets, I’ll settle for sharing a couple amazing photos that will inspire you to visit Dublin […]
If you’re a first time traveler and female, you may feel overwhelmed by your decision to travel alone. Knots in your stomach. Doubts racing like horses through your mind. Mumbles of “am I crazy?” under your breath. It’s easy to fall into the trap of self-doubt. Is the world safe for solo female travelers? Ladies, I […]
February Highlights I can’t believe February’s already gone. Is it just me or is this year flying by? Gah. I want time to slow down. I’m going to be 30 in May and cannot handle it. Anyway. Over all, this was a good month. My blog’s stats rocked, even though February’s short, and I had […]
I’M RETURNING TO SCOTLAND THIS SUMMER!!! Sorry for the bold capital letters and abuse of exclamation marks, but this is major, major, amazing, travel news! You probably already saw details about my summer trip splattered all over my social media channels, but I just had to write a spontaneous post, too. Editorial calendars, be damned. Scotland’s […]
