I consider myself a bit of a frequent flyer. I am in an airport somewhere around 8 times a year, which is more than most people but less than some.
I now expect certain things from an airline, especially when I am traveling internationally. I have flown on some pretty great airlines and some pretty bad ones like this blog discusses. Continue reading Airline Frequent Flyer Problems
Attending my first blogging conference was intimidating. I had so many questions. Was I jumping the gun? My blog was (is) just a baby and I still feel like I don’t know the blogging world at all. Will it be worth flying all the way to Europe? Would I learn anything? Continue reading Tips on Attending a Blogging Conference
Every time I go abroad people act surprised when I tell them I will be staying at a hostel. They ask me if they are safe or how I know they aren’t dirty. I realize that too many people have watched the movie Hostel and consider that real life. Continue reading Tip: Why I prefer hostels.
In November I was set to go to Turkey with three friends from home. Last minute I decided to make a detour to the World Travel Market in London. Which meant that I had to change my flights and not go with all of them. One of the other girls I was going with had to change her flight too.

This week I am headed to London to hang out with some friends and it got me to thinking.
I have started to really enjoy traveling alone. I spent most of my youth travelling with my best friend. Bouncing around from city to city getting on each others nerves and laughing at things only the two of us would think was funny ( sexy priest calendars in Italy, the abundance of mannequin stores in Istanbul, the amount of dogs in Egypt, you get the point) Continue reading Tips: Solo or Partner Travel?
