I’m passionate about A LOT of things which made narrowing in on one ‘subject’ for this blog initially hard. Until I actually started it a few months ago and realized what I like writing about (and what I like reading)…
I consider myself a generally disorganized, spontaneous person. But when it comes to visiting a new city or a new country I love extensively researching everything I can about where I’m going to visit. I want to know where the best restaurants are, what the must-do activities are, and what I should pack!
It also occurred to me that I travel a fair amount myself and instead of just mooching off of the great internet of information I should contribute my own experiences which might help other people as they extensively research their own upcoming trips.
In fashion people talk about “high-low” dressing which is mixing in high end designer pieces with cheaper pieces. I wonder if people use that terminology for travel? Because I think that describes my travel style quite well. When I visit somewhere new I don’t spend much time in hotels and $400/night on a hotel room starts adding up quickly. So for accommodation I’ll typically go the budget route. However I’m an experiences gal and will splurge on things that are worthwhile (eating out at great restaurants, trying fancy cocktails, bungee jumping!)
I’ll write as often as I’m in a new city (or retroactively dig up the deets on a trip I’ve been on previously). I do have a full time job (and a half) so won’t be effortlessly traipsing around the globe (#wanderlust) but will share as often as I explore – I hope you’ll come along for the ride!
P.S. 15,000 miles later refers to the distance between places I’ve lived (not traveled) London – Vancouver – Princeton – Boston – Lusaka !
