River Cruising in Your 30s is Unexpectedly Awesome

By Guest Poster | August 14, 2017

So…you know you’re…umm…a bit younger than the typical demographic, right? That’s my 60-something mom speaking, giving me a gentle warning over Facetime that my husband and I quite possibly just signed up for an 11-day float down the lower Danube with a boatful of octogenarians. When I went on mine, even I was on the […]

Alex Pollack is originally from Memphis, Tennesee and is starting this fall as an MFA student at The University of Central Florida. In 2007 and 2008 he spent a year teaching English in Bundang, South Korea, and experience he chronicled on his truly excellent blog Gorilla Teacher: Diaries of a Young American in South Korea. […]

Preparing to Move Abroad- Part One

By Steph | August 2, 2017

We are roughly 90 days out from our big move to Italy, so I figured it was time for an update. As with most big trips, there is a lot of small progress over time, then a huge rush of activity before departure. We’ve been trying to get as much as possible done as early […]

#PackYourImpact + Travel More Sustainably

By Megan Stetzel | July 28, 2017

Let’s get real here for a second and talk about something that should certainly be on everyone’s radar more than it is as travelers of the world. We are people that see nooks and crannies of the world that many wouldn’t dare venture into, that many can’t even fathom exist. We are the spokespeople for […]

6 Ways Traveling Together Can Strengthen a Relationship

By Guest Poster | July 24, 2017

There are so many ways to keep your relationship strong and to grow alongside your partner. For me and my husband, our preferred method is travel. I first met Nathan in a hostel dorm room in Edinburgh, Scotland. It was 2011, and I was on a European backpacking trip just after college, traveling with my […]

Having Kids Doesn’t Mean an End to Adventuring

By Guest Poster | June 19, 2017

Did you spend your 20s traveling and exploring the world? Both my husband and I have long had a love for travel and spent a fair share of time in our early 20s on quick getaways both in the US and abroad. We’d pack our backpacks and go — for 36 hours if it meant […]

The New Normal: Traveling with a Baby

By Steph | June 14, 2017

To tell the truth we haven’t really done a lot of travel with Marcella yet- mostly because we are trying to save our money for the big move in October. We will have ample opportunity to travel once we’re based in Europe (and she might even remember some of it).  We’ve done a few weekend […]

How To Travel The World As A Dancer

By Guest Poster | May 15, 2017

If you were to ask a group of Millennials how to “travel and get paid to do it,” they’d all pull up their Instagrams and their blogs and show you analytics and affiliate links. And THEN, they’d probably try to sell you an e-course, a nomad guide or social media planner…To each their own, but […]

The Best Travel Backpack for Your Next Adventure

By Megan Stetzel | May 4, 2017

I recently had a friend ask me for suggestions for a backpack for her move to Southeast Asia coming up. I spent a year living in Bangkok, Thailand myself and have spent ample time backpacking around the world and have learned what goes into picking the best travel backpack out there. There are a couple […]

Why An IUD is the Best Birth Control for Travelers

By Steph | April 26, 2017

Do you ever discover something and then seriously kick yourself for not knowing about it earlier? I’ve felt like that about many things: Breaking Bad, stand up paddle boarding and Sri Lankan food for starters. And now I feel this way about my IUD. IUDs are having a bit of a moment now, thanks to […]

Best Coffee Shops & Cafes To Work From In London

By Megan Stetzel | April 4, 2017

I’ve been happily living in cold, chilly, and downright frost-bite inducing London for the past couple months. I also happen to work entirely remotely. And as cute as my apartment is, I am not one who can get work done whilst laying on the couch.   I prefer one of the other three ‘C’s instead: Coffee […]

Solo Female Travel… in Iran?

By Guest Poster | February 14, 2017

At times like this, talking about travel can seem trivial. Of course, traveling abroad is about so much more than pretty vacations and sightseeing. One of the most important things that travel does is put a human face on foreign people. This seems more important now than ever. For the next few weeks, we will […]
