The HUSH Project: Travelling the World in the Name of Love

•••
Let me tell you about a guy from New York City. He is a singer/songwriter and self-proclaimed hopeless romantic – a species of which there are quite few among the city's 8 million souls. Like most people, this guy once went through a crazy love story which would drastically change his life. And, like some other inspired artists, this guy used music as an out[...]

6 Top Things to do on Koh Tao, Thailand

•••
The Urban Dictionary defines the term ‘Paradise’ as a version of heaven minus the clouds, harps, angels etc, but typically seen as an ideal place of beauty such as a massive lush garden with every known exotic plant, animal and bird. This seems to describe the little island of Koh Tao perfectly. However, take this idea of paradise and factor in a long list o[...]

Lighting up the Night Sea

•••
Have you ever heard of the fluorescent plankton that lurks out in deep waters? The kind that lights up and glitters when you move through the water? To those who haven’t it may sound like some exotic magical occurrence, and even though I had vaguely heard of it, I had never quite fathomed what it would look like. But lo and behold, on my recent trip to Thail[...]

The Little People Project

“Abandoning Little People on the Streets since 2006” is the project's slogan, which is pretty mysterious and intriguing… but when you begin exploring this little blog, The Little People Project, the adorable art and photography that take the miniature figures around the world is captivating and you can soon lose a good couple of hours trawling through the ar[...]

FREE Women Traveling Solo Workshop in San Francisco on June 7

Traveling can be as scary as it is exciting, and even more so as a woman. When you think of taking that step and leaving the known for the unknown for the first time, I'm sure a lot of different questions flash through your mind. Where to even begin? It's a lot. I know. I've been there. I've chased my thoughts all around my head in circles worrying about[...]

The Parador: The Epitome of Jungle Luxury

•••
I spent my weekend surrounded by jungle. I saw a white faced capuchin during my morning walk. I ate lunch with an iguana beside me. I swam under a waterfall in the afternoon. I did yoga with tropical birds. I watched the sunset over the ocean as I ate dinner. The best part?  I didn't even leave my hotel. Travelettes, I have a terrible confession to make. Whe[...]

DIY: killing time during layovers with Sky Mall

•••
The Sky Mall catalog is always one of the most interesting ways I find to occupy my time during long plane rides. I have this game I play with myself where I choose what item I would give to what friend. You know, if I was the kind of person who wanted to spend money on totally useful products like a cell phone wrist carrier instead of traveling. If you’[...]

Learning Bahasa Indonesian in Paradise

•••
When traveling to foreign countries where the language is literally so foreign, I found many tourists speaking LOUDER and s.l.o.w.e.r to the locals in a bizarre attempt to get understood. It seriously annoys me every time I see a traveler rudely turn their back to the waiter/market stall owner, throw up their hands and announce to their partner, “He just doe[...]

Around the World for Free

•••
Have you heard of that show ‘Around the World for Free’? I hadn’t until a few days ago, and when I saw that it was ex-reality stars being filmed to travel, I wasn’t very impressed… until I found out the details: 'Around the World for Free' (ATWFF) is a reality series that challenges an individual to get all around the world with absolutely no money and one c[...]
