Today I embark on my first journey. It started with the front drivers side window unable to close after opening for the toll. My driver and I had absolutely no interaction as we both pretended to ignore the problem. johennesburg I'll see you tomorrow at 8:40.... read more

When my parents dropped me off at the airport to leave for Ecuador we all choked back tears and then failed as we separated at the security gate: me on an adventure of independence and them to go back to life as usual, but without their baby. This trip has had such a gradual departure it's lost the surreal air a big adventure can have. Somewhere between the bus ride from Philly and arriving at JFK 6 hours early for our triple delayed flight, the excitement became something more natural. What hasn't changed though is that this is still a journey towards claiming independence and embracing my freedom. With only a backpack and a friend in tow, I'm sooo ready for this this. It may be an escape, a break, a taste... I'm not trying to ... read more

Over two years ago me and my husband Scotty moved from San Francisco, CA to his native New York. In these last two years he keeps telling me: Soon, we will move back to California. It's not that I don't like New York, the seasons are so romantic and I've made some wonderful friends. But to be honest, I do miss my native California. About two months ago we decided to move in October! We got the blessing from his mom to drive the family's Kia Sedona from Queens to Los Angeles. We could do a straight shot- but wouldn't it be more fun to stop in different places along the way? I think our trip will take about a month. We love yoga so the plan is to visit one or two yoga studios in ... read more

We debated for a while whether or not to stay in Hilo or Kona for our Hawai'i Island portion of the trip. Kona is apparently the resort area; the place people think of when they think of vacationing in Hawaii. Hilo appears notorious for rain and clouds, but it is close to the parks we are so interested in and the hotels are so much cheaper. I think economical decisions are wise at this point; I'm leaving my job early to prepare for my move (which means a month of rent without income), the move itself will be a bit of an expense, and we would like to start saving to purchase a house. And so we decided on Hilo; we will tough out whatever weather comes along, and the second portion of our trip on ... read more

I am currently writing this from home, which I guess is a bit strange for a travel site, but I never knew this place existed until today. I do intend to use this journal to record my future trips--and maybe write out some memories from past adventures--but I think the majority of my first few posts will revolve around my move to Canada, which is in 3 months. I married a Canadian, and we decided it would be best for me to emigrate North. I'm very excited! But first, to familiarize myself with this website.. ... read more

April 22, 2014 JFK Airport New York, NY Well I'm sitting at Tigin in JFK so I guess you can say that my journey has begun! I am enjoying a beer and watching the Yankee's play the Red Sox at Fenway. There is not much that is more American than baseball and beer and since this will be my last time in America for the next week I might as well enjoy it. I will be traveling to the motherland, Italy. This journey was a year in the making and a welcomed retreat indeed. In just a few hours I will be in Milan where I am meeting a Mr. Raymond Soha. I know little about my new travel companion but that only adds to the excitement of my adventure. He was the friend of Fr. ... read more

I am currently a senior at the University of Central Oklahoma. I decided to take this class called the New York Media Tour. During fall break our class would be going to NYC and touring Clear Channel, CBS, the IRTS Foundation, and the PaleyCenter. Wednesday I arrived at the airport in OKC at around 10. Our flight was scheduled to leave at 12:20. The flight took off and we arrived in Atlanta. A few of us ate at Chiles in the airport. After that it was soon time to board for New York. That evening we arrived in New York. We took a shuttle to our hotel in Queens. We stayed at the Comfort Inn just for that one night. Jade, Kacey and I decided to go find dinner. We ended up going to eat dinner ... read more

...in the form of rain greeted us when we woke up in NYC after our little sojourn in Washington DC which cooled things down somewhat so we didn't complain. Having been told by Kerrii & Seb what a great movie "Moonrise Kingdom" was (which they'd been to see while they were childfree) we too decided to check it out. Starring Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, Harvey Keitell & others, it was an excellent and extremely funny movie. From there we headed off to the Apple Store on 5th Avenue as I had to get something sorted out with regards to downloading photos onto the iPad. Business sure is well in the Apple world if the amount of people in there was anything to go on; it was almost wall to wall people! Anyway I got ... read more
