I’ve been pretty absent from blogging these past few months. Mostly due to lack of motivation. I’ve been overwhelmed with the amount of bloggers, both senior and nascent, involved in the travel blog niche. I realize that my blog is in no way up to the same standards as other travel bloggers so I lost motivation when I questioned my motives for this blog. Continue reading “A work in progress.”
There was so much to love about Thailand despite my awkward adjustment phase, as mentioned in my previous post, Adjusting to a new life in Thailand. It’s easier to reflect on the positives now that I’ve moved out of the country. A solid three months during the low season in this top travel destination taught me a lot about myself as a traveler and made me hungry to see more. I always get asked for my favorite things about the places I visit, and I like to have a well thought out response. So, here it is for Thailand! Continue reading “7 Things I loved about my life in Thailand.”
I want to share some of my favorite photos from the past three weekends. I’ve made it a goal to see something new every weekend to keep my travel spirits high and healthy. After spending some time abroad I realized I had explored very little of the place I call home. Continue reading “Exploring California.”
Yup. I’m about to share some pretty personal information. All for the sake of … sharing. Continue reading “I’m hella broke…”
So on Christmas eve I got a craving for adventure. I did some Google searching and discovered a few lists of beautiful viewpoints in San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area. I decided to knock a few of them out in one day and Christmas day seemed to be a perfect time since the forecast was clear skies and no rain. Continue reading “Exploring San Francisco.”
Ok, so finally a happy post! I feel like my last two were written during some rough times, but hey, that’s life. Luckily, my time in Prague turned around quite incredibly and I ended up having the time of my life. Once I reminded myself that I was in control of my happiness, I started to relax and I really worked on myself mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Plainly put, I needed a chill pill. Continue reading “Finding peace in Prague.. with alcohol!”
So, I’m back in the San Francisco, Bay Area! What an amazing journey it’s been. My last post wasn’t very uplifting, and I’m not sure if this one will be either, but my next post will be dedicated to the awesome time I had in Prague once I relaxed and let things happen naturally. Continue reading “Protests, police presence.. I’ve returned to America.”
So it’s been almost two weeks since I left Thailand. Now that I’m gone, OF COURSE my brain starts racing with thoughts of sadness and loss. (The grass is always greener…) I feel like my time there was too short. Continue reading “Thailand withdrawals and bitter realizations.”
I really appreciate the honesty of this blogger. I personally don’t know if I’ll have kids in the future, so it’s nice to see other people who’ve made a choice and stand behind it. Kids are not for everyone. I’m sure many travelers wonder if they’ll have kids or put off having kids in order to travel. As my travel and life goals list becomes longer, I feel this idea gaining more power.
I’m fairly open about private life events. Actually, I’m 99% certain that I seriously overshare private life events. With that said, I’ll just get on with all that oversharing business.
I’m 24 and I got a tubal ligation just over a week ago. In case you’re not hip to what that means, I’ll explain: a doctor got all up in my guts, removed a piece from both of my fallopian tubes, and literally burned that bridge so that little man sperms can’t get to my eggs. In other words, I’m sterile – of my own accord. Kind of extreme, right?
I’ve known that kiddos were not for me since I was about 12 or 13. At that age, it was a lot of grown-ups exchanging amused but knowing smiles. “Oh-hoh, you’ll change your mind!” “Well, not now but when you’re grown up and have a husband…” But every year, without fail…
