Traveling alone can be a big fear for people – especially introverts like me. But when you travel, you never have to be alone. You’ll meet plenty of people and in this post, I explain how.
Returning home after a long trip can be tough. Sometimes, home doesn’t exactly feel like home. Sometimes, readjusting is harder than we think – especially when you are coming home to America…
You never know what might happen on the road. Stepping out your door into the unknown is what makes travel so exciting. Each day brings endless possibility, but that possibility is for both good and bad. What can you do to mitigate those unfortunate possibilities? Be prepared!
Wondering how to explain your recent gap year or career break on a resume? Employers will want to know just what you were doing during that time, so you’ll need to highlight your travels in the best possible light. The question is, how do you do that?
Last year, I talked about how travelers are often chasing ghosts. We revisit places, trying to capture that initial amazingness we felt while we were there.
