Four days spent solo traveling in Venice - what I expected is not at all what I found.
Getting out of the routine to daily life is what makes long-term travel both exciting and exhausting. But what if it’s also great training for living?
Bulgaria is beautiful - but the initial reception here seems as chilly as the November weather. How I learned that smiles aren’t everything, and why I’m getting to like traveling alone in Bulgaria.
Right now, I'm in the middle of two very different…
Lower prices, lower crowds, and a whole lot less going on (for better or worse).
On knowing an ancient version of a modern language, and the challenges of a different alphabet.
Finding the beauty in the unexpected on Greece’s largest island - tiny cats, friendly locals, and too much incredible food.
Visiting Athens as a solo female traveler is heaven - friendly strangers, safe streets, excellent coffee. Just watch out for those scooters!
Santorini is a hot modern destination for travel - but the ancient mysteries of Minoan Akrotiri is more interesting to me than pool selfies and hot clubs.
Visiting Dijon and Lyon, two of France’s loveliest cities, I learned to be open to what’s new instead of clinging to what’s behind me.
