Should You Take a Work Sabbatical to Travel?

It’s often a huge challenge to prioritize taking trips or a holiday. A budget that offers options and a little indulge is lovely, but not all of us have this luxury. On the other hand, we might have been squirreling away funds for a while to visit a new destination, but simply can’t find the time from our employer to make the journey significantly worth it. In fact, New research by Opodo reveals more than a third (38%) of Brits said their company offers no flexible working benefits as part…

Getting Ready! Planning a trip to Thailand for the Winter

Flights are ready for two weeks in Thailand! But not a single other thing is planned. We could wandering from noodle food stall to food stall for two weeks as far as anything has been arranged. I like to get the flight in the books first though, then worry about the detail later. Not to mention, I’m used to last-minute trip for work, so having several months to plan something feels like an insane luxury. I am super tempted to keep the trip going and book Delhi to Bangkok flights,…

The WORST Kinds of People on a Plane

I can’t even right now. I’m sitting on the aisle seat on my way to Athens, and the couple next to me is about to fuse together. They take turns laying in each other’s laps like golden retrievers, entertaining each other like a couple of toddlers. Now I’m all for free love, but if this guy elbows me one more time to kiss his girlfriend with big, loud smacking noises, I might just accidentally dump my molten hot airplane coffee all over him. Or maybe down the crack of his…

My yoga practice is going just peachy, but let’s be real. I got to move my behind way more. Stretching and asanas made me feel active and worked well for a while to keep my heart rate pumping. But as my mental health began to improve, as my desire to be social, get out and, well, eat. And drink. I’ve noticed my weight creeping up again, which is discouraging after I had been working so hard. I wanted to find something to do in the city I could enjoy on…

How to Survive The City in the Fall: What to Wear

It’s one thing to gear up and brave the outdoors on purpose, but fall and wintertime means a whole other animal to city dwellers. The streets can get pretty precarious as the temperature drops, which means the winter weather gear has to surface. Choosing clothes that are warm, sturdy and can handle almost any conditions for those who often commute by foot or brave the elements on a daily basis is essential. Layer, Layer, Layer If you’re a public transport warrior, you know how it can be breezy on your…

Seattle’s Stranger Side: Unusual Things to Do

As soon as I stepped foot in Seattle, I could sense something special. There are not a lot of cities I feel at home immediately in, but this west coast oasis surrounded by dense forest is magic. It’s full of people who have landed in a space that’s wonderfully welcome to everything that’s just a little weird. When hot entertainment consists of talented drag queens and art translates to a wall covered in gum, you know you’re in for a wild treat of a trip. Someday I’d love to go…

Is the IAmsterdam Card Worth the Trip?

A polarization of beauty and sin, bicycle bells and flowing canals to windows filled with scantily clad women; it’s amazing this city functions so well. In fact, it seems to be exactly what we all should aspire to – adopting the idea of live and let live. No one seems to be scandalized by the tolerance of soft drugs and prostitution at all in Amsterdam. In fact, it makes the scenic areas of the city even more pleasing, as it shows how harmoniously sophistication and a little hedonistic fun can…

Tackling Business Travel like a Boss

Business and pleasure go hand in hand for me these days. I travel to write, write to travel and have beautifully blended the art of work hard, play hard. It works great for me personally, as I’m able to travel for my freelance job and also take time to relax while on the road. What’s great about trips under both the guise of work and vacation is that I get to stay at a variety of properties. From lavish luxury resorts to humble B&Bs in the countryside, I’ve seen a…
