I’ve wanted to write this story for three months now. It’s the reason I haven’t written anything on this blog since November. It blurred my thoughts and drained my creativity, so I waited – unable, or perhaps just unwilling, to write about anything else in the meantime. The story finally has a conclusion, which means …

"Dress for Success" is the best tip. I often trick myself into thinking I can work in my pajamas, but I have yet to succeed in being productive that way.

It’s no secret (if for no other reason than my infrequent posting over the last few months) that 2015 got off to a slow start for me. Brent and I were dealing with the fall-out from our house sit in Spain, our resulting abrupt return to Canada, and trying to figure out what was next. …

Have you been to Melaka? If you haven’t been, what have you heard about it?
Eclectic architecture, friendly people, and mind-blowing food: Here are a few reasons why I think Melaka should be on everyone’s SE Asia bucket list.

I started out volunteering with Workaway and Helpx, which is a great option if you have a little bit of money saved. I also taught English for a couple of years, which is an awesome way to make some money and travel at the same time. Eventually, my blog helped me find jobs travel writing, so now I freelance full-time to make money (and pay for a place to sleep!). Shoot me and email if you have any more questions.
