22 Hours in Tokyo with DokiDara!
Real Life, Travel

There’s something incredibly euphoric about starting a new trip. Truth be told, I’m actually terrified of flying — probably for the same reason that I hate driving… There’s a lack of control associated with being piloted around in the sky that’s similar to having to trust that everyone else driving a vehicle on the road […]

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 […]

Symphonie Natural in Kinshasa
Travel

When you’re a suburban kid living in a big city, one of the first things you learn is how to get to a place that doesn’t feel “like the city.” When I arrived, Kristen handed me the link to Azadeh’s blog, which is all about living in Kinshasa and what to do and see…so of […]
