    The Dark Side Of Traveling Solo
    Remember my recent post on why you should take a solo trip? well I am going to talk about the side that not many people talk about, the dark side. Solo traveling can be fun, excited, and adventurous because you have the ability to adapt and go with the flow. Solo traveling can also be an emotional drainage. How you may ask? I have taken a few solo trips and my last one got me thinking if I could continue to do this for the rest of my life, traveling by myself, not having a permanent home,

    How To Deal With Stress
    It is normal to feel stress. I would even say the right amount of stress is healthy. In today's world, we deal with stress sometimes only for a day, sometimes for months because it is part of life but we can reduce stress and learn how to deal with them. There are two types of stress, the type of stress that encourage you to get things done such as working towards your goals and then there is a type of stress that will bring you down to your knees and scream at the man above you "Why Me!"

    There are moments that change your life and there are books that change the way you perceive the world.  This is one of those books. This is not a book review, rather, it is a way to express the message this book has passed to me. The Alchemist The boy's name was Santiago.

    Road Bumps: Journey to Niagara Falls
    Since I had been back from Thailand, my schedule had been really full and it had been a while since I'd had a few days off. There was a free weekend approaching and a part of me wanted to relax but the travel bug came and bit me. I couldn't resist making the best out of the following days by going on a trip. The trip started with phone calls like most of my trips did. I called my friend Sophia and said "Hey! I am planning to go to Canada the next time we have a few days off, are you down?"

    The One Thing I Wouldn't Travel Without
    A few days ago, my friend missed his flight due to a situation that was out of his control. Navy piers at Naval Norfolk Station shut down due to bomb threats: No foot traffic on nor off naval ships until the security team said it was safe to get off. Fortunately, he bought travel insurance, his flight was covered. But unfortunately, he did not get reimbursed for the hotel because he didn’t buy the insurance that covers hotel costs. This type of incident happens all the time. While traveling,

    Ways To Live An Adventurous Life
    “Are you adventurous?” Many of us get asked this question. But what does it really mean to be adventurous? Is it a type of life full of excitement, danger, and exploration? Growing up, I was shy, stuck to a small group of friends, and insecure. Confidence was something I could only dream of. I would wonder why other people seemed to be lucky enough to travel to other countries. Or why it was that the boy in my 8th-grade class could enjoy the roller coaster while I could only sit on the bench,

    Self Commitment And Its Importance
    It is New Year's Eve and thoughts of how much weight you want to lose or how many places you want to travel to this year run through your mind resulting in excitement that fills your mind and body with energy. The type of energy that is unlimited, the type that makes you feel like you can take on the world. The first day of the year has arrived and you are ready to work towards your new goals.

    Journey To Koh PHI PHI
    “The only source of knowledge is experience.” -Albert Einstein As a note 1 U.S. dollar = 34 Thai baht. My story begins at my place of stay in Tonsai Beach: Chill Out Bungalows. These bare-boned bungalows cost $22 dollars a night. Each bungalow provided my friends and I with our most basic needs: a bed with a mosquito net, a toilet and a single roll of toilet paper, and a shower with water that could only be set to cold. Although, I was delighted to find that the bungalows came with a built-in
