Bloggers Burnout vs Bloggers Balance

That moment when you login to the admin screen and see the notifications on the right hand side : 127 comments, 7 plugins, 14 updates and that’s not even including emails. Shit. Where do I start? There’s a million things pressing into the back of my mind like a trick birthday candle that just won’t go out. I used to be a reader – I remember those days when I saw a fat book, dripping with character calling to me from the bookshelf. Please – read me, let’s take fast and free adventures together. Just 30 pages,...

Want To Volunteer With Elephants? Read This First

Brandy says: Today, I am happy to share a guest post from the lovely Laurine Robb -Horning. I had the immeasurable pleasure of meeting Laurine in Chiang Mai, Thailand and the serendipitous friendship serves as a constant reminder to me that travel works in mysterious ways.   When Laurine and I met, I naturally gushed to her about the unbelievable beauty of the Elephant Nature Park but Laurine countered with a well informed point of view on why she wouldn’t be participating in any elephant tourism in Asia. Regaling me...

An Elephant Never Forgets

  Girl Meets Elephant I’ll never forget the moment I first met an elephant. A good friend and fellow blogger, Diana Edelman, had invited me to her job in Chiang Mai, Thailand. We got on a bus and made the windy drive to a lush camp in the Mae Taeng area. As we drove past the river, I looked to my left and saw a procession of elephants, making their way back to camp. Their proximity turned the beats of my heart up, and as we arrived at the park I struggled to contain my sheer childlike giddiness. Feeling like a kid in a candy store,...

Date A Girl Who Doesn’t Travel

Everyone in the cafe was turned to look at me. “MHMMMM” I said, with more oomph and soul than a Holy-Roller preacher woman. I licked my finger and flipped the page, devouring the words. The article, “Date A Girl Who Doesn’t Travel” by Debra Ly, was the perfect mixture of honesty and boldness. While we all have ideals of what makes a perfect mate, there’s no denying that the “traveling” breed are one of their own. What do you think : does being a traveler / nomad make you an impossible...

Stepping Away From the Sugar Coating

It’s frighteningly easy to hide yourself behind a blog. Sure, we’re public people who write and photograph our hearts out, but there’s no honesty breathalyzer that we have to blow into before being allowed to hit “publish”. Sometimes, this leads to certain people filtering out parts of their personality that they imagine are less desirable or relevant to their audience. (yup, I mean me)   For some reason, I got it into my head that having a female travel blog meant every post needed to be enthusiastic like a cheer, and...

Thailand : Don’t Get Farang Poisoning

Sure, we all know how to avoid Food poisoning in Thailand, but there’s another condition that’s not given enough attention : Farang Poisoning! Farang is the Thai word for “alien” and you will hear it used while walking the streets, in the night markets, or when streams of children pass by, fingers pointed “farang! farang!” Some farang flock together, magnetically attracted to each other’s Chang tshirts and dreadlocks, and other farang flee from each other, never making eye contact and hustling past...

What Are You Willing to Do for Free Accommodation?

  Brandy says: Do you know what some free accommodation can cost you? James of The House Sitting Couple is here to let us know the price you can wind up paying for a free night’s sleep. I won’t ruin the story, but I will tell you that I won’t be shaking his hands any time soon!   I was going to tell the story about when I couchsurfed with a nudist because it meant free accommodation. It was a very cold January in New York and it made me question firstly whether nudists should be so dedicated...
