It took me awhile to hear about what happened in Ecuador with the female who were raped and murdered but I learned how the world responded, I had to share my story.   #viajosola   #backpacker   #violenceagainstwomen   #rape   #solotravel   #femaletravelers  
Yesterday, I shared on Facebook Leah McLennan’s article “Why I’ll never stop traveling solo” which was written in response to the rape and murder of two Argentine female travelers in Ecuador earlier this month. I didn’t follow the actual incident closely at the time because I stay away from depressing news but basically Maria Coni, 22, and Marina …

“You live like this, sheltered, in a delicate world, and you believe you are living. Then you read a book… or you take a trip… and you discover that you are not living, that you are hibernating. The symptoms of hibernating becomes dangerous and might degenerate into death: absence of pleasure. That is all. It appears like an innocuous illness. Monotony, boredom, death. Millions live like this (or die like this) without knowing it. They work in offices. They drive a car. They picnic wiith their families. They raise children. And then some shock treatment takes place: a person, a book, a song and it awakens them and saves them from death. Some never awaken” –The Dairy of Anais Nin
I know I've been terrible about writing for the past few months and even this post isn't particularly timely but better late than never, right?

Have you just relocated?  Here's some tips for finding happiness in a new city or new country, based on my first 1.5 months as an #expat in #Auckland   #NewZealand

I’ve met others who have been for years and still doesn’t feel completely adjusted. Whether you’ve moved to a new country or just relocated to a distant new city, you’re …

I've been living in Auckland, New Zealand for a little over a month and the transition was somewhat rough.  But with a change in mindset, I'm finally starting to appreciate this quirky little country. #expat   #auckland   #newzealand  
“When you travel, remember that a foreign country is not designed to make you comfortable. It is designed to make its own people comfortable” -Clifton Fadmiman It seemed that my last post made people conclude that I’d be happier with ex-pat life here if New Zealand had more issues. Not exactly, I don’t wish more pain and …

Don't do what I did... traveling Central America
My recent trip to Central America proves that no matter how much you’ve traveled, there’s always more to learn. Despite having visited approximately 60 countries at this point, my Central America trip was embarrassingly poorly planned. Once I arrived, I realized it was actually really easy to get around, but the lack of clear information online led …

"I never knew of a Morning in Africa when I woke up and was not Happy" -Ernest Hemingway
Every country I visit in Africa seems to be my new favorite but Malawi will always have a special place in my heart. Who can resist its adorable children, relentless sellers of unnecessary paraphilia that successfully got us to take off our clothes and men with crazy marriage proposals?
