Traveling in an era of terror: Overcoming Fear

•••
Reading the news in today’s climate can be depressing. Sometimes I feel that the state of the world is in disarray and hostility has become so endemic in global affairs that the future of our society seems doomed. The repercussions of this cascade into various aspects of life, and I really feel it when traveling. Even the most experienced and passionate trav[...]

3 Ways You Can Help Stop Rainforest Deforestation

•••
Even if you're at the opposite side of the world to South America's Amazon Rainforest, or maybe have not even touched foot on the continent at all, it doesn't matter - you can still help to prevent the devastating destruction of the world's largest forest from wherever you may be. The Amazon is one of the most bio-diverse habitats in the world, a refu[...]

A Lesson in Dorm Sex Etiquette

•••
We’ve all been there, right? It’s 3.00am, and that pretentious fool with the guitar and dreadlocks is looking like a pretty great idea from across the beer pong table. We’re only animals, after all. A hot topic of debate amongst the backpackers of the world: is it okay to have sex with someone in shared a dorm room? And how, if possible, does one even[...]

Destination: Discrimination

•••
Destination Discrimination. It’s a real thing. When I was eight years old, I was thoroughly disinterested in the idea of our family trip to Mexico, and wanted to know why Disney World wouldn’t be getting our business yet again. Similarly, during my junior year in college when I told my parents I was one click away from booking a three-week trip through Vie[...]

How to avoid travel burnout

•••
Travel burnout? I hear you cry. What a very privileged concern to suffer from. But let me set the record straight. There is such a thing as the well documented ‘rat race’ in the real world, so of course it exists in the travel world. ‘How could I ever get sick of travel?’ Yep, that’s a good question. I’m not necessarily saying you’ll get sick of trav[...]

The Rise of ‘Eco-Anxiety’ and How It Could Shape the Future

•••
For me, it struck hardest watching David Attenborough's latest series 'Our Planet'. The polar bears struggling to survive, the altered migration paths of whole species and the devastating decline of wildlife by 60% across the world. It filled me with overwhelming guilt and disgust at not only myself, but the whole human race. However it was one of Attenb[...]

A Love Letter to Ugly Shoes

•••
Dear Hiking Boots, We’ve been together for just over a year now, and I think it’s about time I tell you how I really feel. When I first sat on the metal bench at the now-closed sports store in Kiel, Germany, and the kind, sporty shop assistant pointed at a pair of poop-brown boots with electric blue accents (what a combination), I cringed. I like pret[...]

Tips for Traveling with Anxiety

•••
Some people want to make us believe that travel is the cure to everything and can heal anything from a broken heart to mental issues. I don't believe that to be necessarily true and sometimes quite the opposite takes place. While travel is a big part of my life as a digital nomad, I have come to realize how hard it can be to deal with certain issues when I a[...]

Vale: The Four Letter Word You Need More Of

•••
It’s a dog, it’s a plane, it’s… Vale. Pronounced Bah-Lay, emphasis on the first syllable. We all need a little more “vale” in our lives, and I’ll tell you why. After a recent stop in the coastal city of A Coruña, Spain “vale” is my new favorite word. What does it mean? To be honest I have absolutely no idea. I first heard this four-letter nugget of a wo[...]

Cruise Confessions (Part One)

•••
When I was 16, my mom broke the news at the dinner table that we’d be going on a European cruise with her extended family, and I was convinced it was April Fool’s Day. We weren’t “cruise people.” My entire childhood was filled with trips to the jungles of Costa Rica and skiing the Rocky Mountains. We were a family of outdoorsy adventurers, not fluorescent ca[...]
