5 Best Websites for Finding Cheap Flights Without A Specific Destination

Let’s face it; we’ve all had those moments where we just want to get the heck out of dodge. Just say “Screw it!” pack our bags, book the cheapest one-way ticket to the middle of west Podunk nowhere, change our names, and start anew.Ok, maybe that’s a bit dramatic.Perhaps you’ve wanted to just book a flight to some random, far away beautiful place, because, why not; but your bank account was more like, “Mmmm…how about you take a stroll to the park instead?” Trust me, I’ve been there, felt that. Given that, I am absolutely...

One thing about Southeast Asia (SEA), it is the mecca of all things cheap, making it a top destination for backpackers and budget travelers.I have done quite a bit of solo travel, but my jaunt around SEA was the first where I visited multiple cities and countries in a relative short amount of time.4 weeks.This is all the time I had to venture across 4 countries. For some people a definitive plan is a must. They book every flight, bus, hotel, and excursion well in advance. Me, on the other hand, I break out in...

36 Hours in Ho Chi Minh City

Ho Chi Minh City (HCM), also known as Saigon, is a whirlwind of a city, and a vibrant mix of old and new. You can easily be engulfed by the city’s modern skyscrapers, and walk a few blocks over and be taken aback by its awe-inspiring, well-preserved, colonial buildings. Despite it’s gripping past of being at the heart of the Vietnam War (known as the American War in Vietnam), it is evident just how resilient this city is and its will to overcome even the worst adversities. Forty years, post war, and HCM has become...

9 Must-Try Atlanta Restaurants

No matter how many exotic countries I visit; delectable, international, dishes I devour; or incredible people I meet along the way, there is no place like home. For me, home is none other than the sweet Peach State of Georgia. The place where everybody is referred to as honey, sugar, sweetheart, and baby; where southern charmers will leave you feeling like you’ve just made a new BFF in the span of a 20 second elevator ride; and where iced tea is unmitigated blasphemy. It’s sweet diabetic coma inducing tea, or nothing at all (this is not up...

As a novice blogger, I’ve quickly learned that writing from the road isn’t as easy as it seems, ESPECIALLY when you have a month jam-packed with non-stop travel and adventures. I’ve also learned that if ever Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs should be revamped, modified, made anew, it should be NOW! I mean, right now…at this very moment, and the first level of need should be Wi-fi this is not up for debate. For about a week and a half it was a pain in the arse luxury to be able to even check my email, let alone upload large-file...

That One Time I Went Scuba Diving…

I’m not the type that typically freaks out. Well…except maybe when it comes to bugs…and furry and/or non furry four-legged animals that can scratch, bite, or claw my eyes out…and always every now and then the dark…and needles.Ok, so maybe I am the type. But, whatever, that’s not the point. The point is, when it comes to things like jumping out of planes, or zipping through the jungle strapped to a harness on a line, and swimming with nurse sharks, I’m all good. No worries. No fears. So, when scuba diving in Boracay left me...

Off The Beaten Path: Hoi An

Woman in cone hat walking along rice paddies

Street photography is probably my favorite style of photography. I love the candidness and authenticity of it. It allows me to become a visual storyteller. However, I will be the first to admit I am the biggest coward when it comes to making these types of photos. I feel like it's such an awkward intrusion, for both myself and the subject. So I'm usually THAT person who stands off in the distance snapping photos, then scurrying off before the subject has a chance to object lol. But, I'm challenging myself more and more to step...
