I'm not sure how or why it happened but somewhere along the line I got everything I ever wanted and so much more.In all honesty, I’ve been mulling over whether or not to make this announcement at all. I know other writers who quickly shared their happy news with their readers, and while I admire their boldness for doing so, I wasn’t sure this was something I wanted to do myself. Believe it or [...]
 
 
The holidays never fail to lift my spirits. There's something so beautiful about Christmas lights reflecting off snow-covered streets and sipping warm, hot-chocolate as I gaze outside my apartment window. I'm not as crazy about all the commercial hoopla pushed down our throat but I understand that like every industry, the holidays is a business and I just need to accept it for what it is. That bei[...]
 
 
Deciding to spend the first week of July in Paris, I officially revelled in my "vacation". As a travel blogger, I am on-the-go much of the time and while I can hardly complain about this, there is always something on my mind. In fact, sometimes I find it hard to travel the way I did a few years back. Now, I'm always looking for story angles, snapping photographs of inspiring street or learning mor[...]
 
 
My recent articles about finding peace through travel and bohemian cities that feel like home really got me thinking about revisiting many of these destinations. As a budget traveler, I usually choose to stay with either local friends or at inexpensive hostels wherever I go, but in certain cities where I feel at peace, I find myself craving more of a "home" environment.So this week, I'm review[...]
 
 
I'm sure we've all had our moments when we feel misunderstood. I can only speak for myself but I've had many of these moments in the past year alone.Pursuing a career in the arts already puts me at a disadvantage compared to those who have a more stable and safe job. I sometimes feel that my family and friends don't completely understand my life and while I am fully aware that I've taken the r[...]
 
 
Living a Bohemian Lifestyle doesn't mean you are a legit gypsy asking tourists for money outside of Notre Dame Cathedral. I remember my first time in Paris I was shocked to find rather disheveled looking gypsy types at every corner. My naive 21 year old self just assumed they would all look like Esmerelda from Disney's portrayal of The Hunchback of Notre Dame. My mistake!Anyway, here are 10 si[...]
 
 
One of the challenges of being bohemian traveler is finding balance between satisfying my wandering cravings and feeling settled in my everyday life.This time last year I was working 9-5 in a city I loved and yet I often found myself day dreaming about where I wanted to travel to next. Since I was no longer enchanted with my life, there was really nothing holding me back.  I pushed fear aside [...]
 
 
Someone asked me the other day how many countries I had been to and after thinking for a few minutes, I realized that it was 22. Considering I recently turned 25, I'd say that's not too shabby so before heading out to a few more countries this year, I've made a list of where I've been and included some of my favorite memories.UK and EUROPEEngland: London was my home for a few months in 200[...]
 
 
The holidays are fast approaching and with New York City shining bright, I’ve decided to highlight 5 cities I’ve visited during Christmas that know how to decorate right.CuscoBy far the warmest destination, I spent some time traveling through South America just a few days after Christmas. Their seasons are opposite what I’m used to, so it was certainly a strange sensation to be sitting in [...]
 
 
(original article is from Megan's Travel Column, entitled Weekly Wanders on Life2PointOh)It's hard to pick just one city to visit in Europe, which is why few people actually do. Luckily for the savvy and sophisticated 20-something traveler, getting around Europe is pretty simple, especially when you think about how accessible it is to go from one city to the next. From London, you can arrive i[...]
 
 
This post is by emily Banyard, one of our contributors.Like many Australians, my foray into travel started off as a ‘gap year’. A rite of passage - ‘gappers’ take time off between/after High school or University and journey as many places as possible usually on a shoestring.Late 2008 after finishing college in Sydney, I booked a three month return ticket to London with the intention of vis[...]
 
 
(article from Megan's Travel Column, Weekly Wanders on Life2PointOh)I’ve officially been in Santiago, Chile for less than a week and although I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, there is actually a lot of action going on here. First of all, there have been student protests taking place in the streets but it hasn’t gotten out of control as far as I can tell. From what I hear from my window, the[...]
