Bohemian Trails Gets Physical

Commercial – Skiing It’s been about five years since the last time I skied so I didn’t want to challenge my skills too much. I’ve only ever skied in the US and most of those times involved artificial snow as opposed to real snow in Norway. After a few runs on the Bunny Slopes, I

Review – Timeshares and Travel

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

Why Travel Writing is Misunderstood

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

Defending Hostels

This post is by Kay Boatner, one of our contributors. I blame Hostel.

Travel as the New Social Clique

After a long but productive day I had come to the realization that I wasn’t going to make it out of my apartment as most people my age would on any given Saturday night. In an effort to clear my head a bit, I turned on the television for a few minutes of mindless stimulation.

A Day with the Dolphins

If you asked me at five years old what I wanted to be when I grew up you would have heard something like this: “I want to be a marine mammal trainer and work with killer whales!” A few years later, my Dad traded in an extra day of waiting in Disney World lines to

Backpacking: The Bohemian’s Vacation

This post is by David VanArsdale, one of our contributors. I don’t understand the people who buy express passes at amusement parks. They pay extra to skip the lines and walk straight to the roller coasters. Yes, waiting in those zig-zagging lines sucks. Yes, you’re sweating so much that your underwear is sticking to your
