The Day I Told Work I Was Leaving

Ever since I made the decision to travel I’ve been dreading the day I had to tell work I was leaving. Perhaps if this had not been my one and only full time job since shrugging off my student lifestyle and budget, it would have been different. All I knew, I was as nervous about this day as I had been when I was sitting in the back seat of […]


My First Overseas Trip Part 1

Some 4 years ago I ventured off on my first trip overseas. As green as a first time traveler can be I headed to Hong Kong for Christmas, then Singapore for the New Year.

I mean you’ve gotta be tight when your getting all angry with the street vendor over what works out to be 50 cents right? One way I hope to keep the daily […]
