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 […]

Totally a lie, right? We all know travel is possible […]

We can all name destinations that are near and dear to our hearts. For example, I’ll always cherish Scotland since it was my very first solo trip and changed the course of my life. These places touch us, making them far more valuable than a pretty “insta-famous” vacation destination. Marco Island is more than a tropical Florida […]
If you’ve read my “Destinations” page, you can tell I love traveling to Europe alone a lot. Some of you probably wonder if I’ll ever add different continents to my (ahem out of date) destinations list. I will, I promise. New Zealand has beckoned for ages. So has Peru. And Japan. However, I ADORE Europe – especially for solo […]
Valentine’s Day lurks on the horizon, wayfarers! Chocolate, flowers, gift lists, and overpriced dinners everywhere! At least my favorite color is pink (if you couldn’t tell from my blog’s layout) so I don’t mind that part so much. Haha, in school, I hated this holiday so so so much. I thought it was too sappy, gooey, and […]
Remember last year when I told new travel bloggers it was okay to make mistakes? It was difficult to take my own advice this week. “Wow, Rachel, that’s melodramatic,” you might be thinking, “What happened?” Basically, I was a member of a travel blog sharing group for two or three weeks. A couple days ago, I […]
