It’s daunting staring at a blank canvas. It’s even more daunting starting a new blog living in the world of social media-rich and Instagram-famous.
I have blogged off and on (although, more so ‘off’ as of recent years) since 2009. My old blog holds nearly a decade of ramblings, a lot of growing up and life lessons are in those site stats, a lot of weird, awkward early-twenties stories too. It isn’t that I’m trying to erase them, I just want something more like a clean slate to tell my tales.
I always knew I loved wandering, what I was slow to realize was that others wanted to know how I wandered. Whether it was hearing stories about what I’ve seen and where I’d been to tips on how I even got there, I’ve been fielding questions for ages now and it only seems to make sense to start leaving those tips and tales, the resources and regrets all in one place for anyone to grab at their disposal.
In all honesty, I don’t know what this site will become. If you’re hoping for a Frommer’s type of guide, I’m not your gal. If you’re hoping for a few laughs and maybe some decent suggestions, you’re in the right place! Mostly, I hope to be able to look back one day and go, ‘Oh yea! THAT was the place we had that amazing burger in Fiji’ and maybe someone else stumbles over there to try it one day too.
Feel free to jump on board, and enjoy the ride!
