The tales of life as a travel blogger
My Horribly Awkward Travel Photos
To ask, or not to ask: that is the solo traveler’s question. Getting decent photos of yourself while traveling is really hard, especially if you travel on your own. Should you get a selfie stick? A tripod? Hire a professional photographer to follow you around all day like a fabulous travel model? I would so do the […]
I’m Moving to Beijing!
So the unthinkable just happened… I GOT A JOB! It feels like just yesterday, I was having a quarter-life crisis because at twenty-three years old, I didn’t know where I wanted to live or what I wanted to do with my life. I guess turning a year older does make you wiser because now I’m […]

My friends are all starting careers, developing relationships and decorating apartments, and here I am with no career prospects, a master’s degree and $20k USD in debt…. Help me. I’ve always […]

As I spent the evening packing for my trip to Cambodia tomorrow, I thought about how much has changed in the last three years. My life is so completely different now than it was back […]
2014: A Crazy Year of Adventure
As this year comes to a close I can’t help but think back on all of the crazy adventures I’ve had. This time last year I was struggling with my teaching placement in the Chinese countryside, wondering if I would abandon my contract half-way through and go back to America. I was lonely, a little […]
