A Day Trip to The Golden Rock (Totally Doable!)
Travel

Day two in Yangon was actually a weird bonus day, because when I arrived, I had asked my hostel to help me book an overnight bus to Bagan, and the next available bus was one night later than I had in my “plans.” However, the beauty of traveling by yourself and with no *real* plans […]

My City Tour in Stone Town Experience
Travel

My first day in Zanzibar started with a very exciting Ferry ride from Dar Es Salaam, which you can read about here. After debarking from the ferry, I was scooped up by a desk attendant from The Pyramid Hotel, where I had pre-booked for two nights. He whisked me off on a short but dizzying […]

Safari in Serengeti & Ngorogoro Crater w/ 7Wonders
Travel

Even though I arrived in Arusha, the literal FIRST order of business was to immediately go on Safari to Serengeti & Ngorogoro. I had pre-arranged everything through one of my friends from the Girls Who Travel Facebook group, so I was all set and ready to go! That said, the Serengeti/Ngorogoro Safari was nothing if […]

Remember that day a few weeks back when the Perfect Ten was in Swakopmund and we went sandboarding and skydiving and it was this insane, expensive, adrenaline-filled, epic day? Well, today was crazier. Day 19 started with our final breakfast as Acacia-ers at 6am, and then we were headed to our activity pickup in the […]
