Coming back to the states was a strange feeling. I didn’t want to come back… at all honestly. But there were a few reasons I felt I had to. The first was the two of my incredibly inspiring and amazing friends were about to have a bad-ass wedding in Denver (and who wouldn’t use any … Continue reading But How Do You Afford To Travel Around The World?!
Quick note before I begin this post: This might be a little bit of a rant and I apologize beforehand. If you refer to yourself as a backpacker, if you are obsessed with the Thai islands, if you overly love to party, etc. be ready to be slightly offended. But it's time you realize something, … Continue reading I’m Not a Backpacker; I’m Just Traveling with Backpacks
Day 58. I was cutting it close. After missing my first flight to Singapore… Wait, quick side note. So I had my first visa run flight booked before I even got to Indonesia (since I had to have proof of departure for the type of visa I was applying for). Fast forward two months, and … Continue reading 48 Hours in Singapore: The (Almost Missed) Visa Run

And while I didn't mean to take forever to catch you up on the … Continue reading A Solo Female’s Journey from Casablanca to Marrakech
