The First South American Country I’d Visit

You may or may not know that I used to be a competitive swimmer {/I still am, considering I’m getting back into it?}. Anyway, that being said, a few destinations have stumbled onto my bucket list for this very reason. I was thinking to myself how I’ve never been to any country located in South America, and immediately I knew if I have the option to choose, Chile is going to be the first South American country I visit.  Continue reading “The First South American Country I’d Visit”

An Open Letter To My Perfect Travel Partner{s}

When you travel with people, you’ll find some people are better at travelling with you than others.

It’s fun to travel in groups, and it’s fun to travel solo. For me, I find it best to travel with one-two people, as long as I’m travelling with the right person{s}. Travelling with another person is such a tricky business. It can literally make or break relationships of any kind. Just because we may be best friends, doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll be my perfect travel partner. The perfect travel partner is found through trial and error, and when you finally get it right, it’s truly an amazing experience! Continue reading “An Open Letter To My Perfect Travel Partner{s}”

This day happens every year on the third Sunday of June. I was intrigued on if the day is celebrated around the world, and where it is, how they celebrate their dads. Come find out what I learned!  Continue reading “Feature Friday: Father’s Day Edition”

The Most Important Lesson I Learned While Travelling

“Life lessons will catch you at moments you would never expect. They don’t announce themselves, or come with a tag.”

I’m going to tell you a story…one that occurred in a very unlikely place that will be stuck with me forever.

My best friend and I were at the beach. I can’t remember if it was spring break, or if we met up in the summer. I can’t remember if it was Oak Island, Myrtle Beach, or some other beach on the east coast. What I do remember from that trip, is having a conversation with a shop owner that changed my life. My friend and I walked into the store with the intention of buying a couple of souvenirs for family and friends back home; what we left with was so much more.

Where Are You From?

‘Where are you from?’ Such a simple question for most, but a complex one for me. Read on to find out why!

“Where are you from?”

This is one of the questions that I dislike the most; a question that baffles me to no end. To each person who asks it, it has a different meaning. To each person to whom it is asked, it is interpreted differently. How does one even begin to answer a question such as that?! Let me give you some insight on what goes on in my head when someone asks me that: Continue reading “Where Are You From?”
