I started out the year on such a run and with big goals. Sadly, you’ve probably noticed that my daily posts have disappeared, and before that my daily photos were kind of minimal. Phooey.
Through the process, I’ve realized that there is only so much one person can do, and the daily posts brought me to a very… Read more
Most of us live lives of routine, and that routine makes it so we never really forget what day of the week it is. Monday is awful, always; Fridays are a write-off; the weekends… we live for the weekends. And Sunday, well, it can be hit or miss. I used to live in a world of routine where Sunday was… Read more
It only takes one kind person on our travels to take a crappy experience and turn it around. It’s because of those people, the nice ones that go out of their way, that we find our hostels or are helped to find the right bus when the other ones would otherwise take us to the middle of nowhere.
I remember… Read more
For four days I have been frantically writing posts. As each day passes, I have been yet another day behind and I honestly have too much going on to keep up this back-blogging. So, I did it. I combined four days of posts into one to start fresh on Monday and start blogging again in a… Read more
I’m not one for housekeeping, but this site definitely needs a good touch-up. One of the pages that is on the list is the Questions page which is, at this moment, full of basic questions from long ago. I’d like to fill it with more meaningful questions and answers, so do please ask away!

When you’re a budget traveler, you’re always out for the cheapest price on everything: accommodation, tours and transport. Airfare typically becomes a place where I go for cheap, regardless of the amenities on board or if it costs me an extra hour or two. Heck, I’ve flown Aeroflot before from Ukraine to Moscow to Bishkek because it was… Read more
Scary movies, haunted houses and paranormal TV shows: These are all things that I was subjected to at a very, very young age, and even though I bawled my eyes out from fear on my first haunted house experience at age… 3 I think, I literally became a spook addict from that… Read more
Do you ever get so caught up in an idea that you find yourself getting lost in thought for hours, unintentionally, trying to figure out how to make it all work out? Oh, I have, big time. I’m the worst at thinking about things… too much… to the point where I often lack getting real work… Read more
I like being resourceful, and apparently I’m not the only one. I asked my readers what they’ve done to be resourceful and save money for and during travels, and the list that’s been compiled is awesome. It ranges from daily life decisions, packing tips and travel gear hacks. Have a read, be inspired and learn… Read more
Long or short, a holiday is a holiday, right? Well, yes and no. A holiday’s basic definition (to me) would be the escape from normal life, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s a relaxing and do nothing sort of ordeal. A holiday means different things to different types of travelers; it’s… Read more
Day 71 was not St. Patty’s day, but I went to a party that was all about celebrating it on a weekend evening. It was a killer party, and everyone was wearing green — my favorite color. Since I am lacking photo evidence of my own from the gathering, I thought… Read more
