In my ongoing quest to show you the full spectrum of travel,I wanted to share another,more recent travel fail of mine.One that saw me miss a river cruise to see bats in favour of a visit to urgent care.The day I got a bit cocky and fell off a Lime in Austin.
If you want to travel but it intimidates you,maybe some of these stories will make you think,"well,hell if she can do it,so can I!" And if so,then my job here is done.For this story I'm going to take you back to Barcelona in 2014 when I was still a relatively new solo traveller.Fakin' it 'til I makin' it…
I sat at the kitchen table,staring at a small paper bag,filled with dried purple seaweed.This time I would try it.The briny smell of the ocean floor wafted from the bag.You could smell it from six feet away,easy.But it was time.No more excuses.At the age of 39,it was high time that I tried dulse for the first time.
There are many things that could stop me from travelling.Age.Being solo.Fear.Money.But I'm doing my best to not let any of them put a stop to my travels.The world is wide and I want to make some memories.I won't stop traveling until I've seen the sun set on every coast.
Have you ever had body image issues plague you while on a beach vacation?It happened to me in Costa Rica.For a few days I had arguments with myself when I couldn't seem to shake the negative thoughts.I'm sharing now how I went about 万博官网getting back to feeling like myself.
Costa Rica is a great place to relax.It encourages you to slow down and appreciate your surroundings.To enjoy the little things.To go with the flow.But Santa Teresa takes it to a whole other level.For me,it was the town that was all flow,no go.
Costa Rica was the scene of my first international solo trip back in 2012.With my imminent return I started thinking a lot about that trip.I was such a baby traveller back then.Everyone has some misconceptions and makes some silly travel mistakes when they first start travelling.I was no exception.
Globally,2017 has been a bit of a dumpster fire but personally it's been a pretty good year.Especially when it comes to travel.I got to visit four new countries,met great new people,and had some amazing experiences I'll never for万博官网get.So I thought I'd share some of my favourite moments with you.
"I'm trying to 万博官网get to Comino." "You can get there from Gozo." "I don't have a ticket.I need a ticket." "It's ok.Just go,the gate is closing.Go." I was still half asleep from the hour long morning bus ride so I just followed the crowd.I followed the crowd off the bus.I followed the crowd into the terminal.I followed the crowd onto the ferry.I followed the crowd to Gozo.And that's how I found myself accidentally island hopping in Malta.
I'm sitting on a bean bag chair in one of the hostel's common areas trying desperately not to scratch any of the 20+ itchy bug bites I've picked up in two days and listening to the thunder outside grow closer,putting a damper on my activity planning.Malta,we've gotten off to a rocky start.
For the past couple of months masses of people have descended on a small farming community just outside of St.John's,hoping to change their lives at the local parish hall.They're not religious fanatics on a pilgrimage.They're chasing the ace.
Based on the name of this site,you'd assume that camping wasn't my thing.And… well… you're not entirely wrong.But I decided to put that to the test with a friend recently backcountry camping in Terra Nova National Park.What could possibly go wrong?We'd commune with nature,spend a night in the fresh air,and wake up to birds chirping next to a pond.What could go wrong?
Geri Coady is a freelance illustrator and designer based in Nottingham,England.She's also an expert on colour accessibility who has previously written a pocket guide on the topic with a new book in the works.We recently caught up with Geri after a whirlwind trip to Japan and got the low down on her travel style.
Kelly Lawson is the #girlboss behind Saint John,NB start-up,Ella – an app to let women post and sell fashion items that they no longer wear.Think fashion swap meet for the iPhone age.I caught up with Kelly in between business trips to find out more about her travel style.
It's that time year again.There's just one more day left in 2016 and I thought I'd take a bit of time to look back on where I've been this year.In every year,there are ups and downs so I thought I'd share a few of my memorable ones with you.
