Italy Itinerary for a Thrifty Traveler

Italy Itinerary for a Thrifty Traveler

DAY 1: Milan Hitch-hiking in from Charmonix, France, I was immediately blown away by Italy. From quaint Northern towns to the bustling grandeur of Rome, Italy is a destination that many people flock to from all over the world. I would like to share with you my personal expenses and experience in traveling the region! […]

Learning Hindi in India

Learning Hindi in India

I never really knew what I would choose if it came down to a superpower. As a kid, that seemed to be a popular game. But now, I know what I would pick. Hands down, ability to speak any language. If I could walk down the street and eavesdrop on what people were saying, I […]

Traveling France on a Budget

Traveling France on a Budget

I walked off the flight from Delhi, India to Paris, France and was surrounded by a whirlwind of change. Traveling on the low in Europe requires a lot more expertise than traveling in a third world country, believe it or not. Although you have tons of infrastructure to make you super comfortable, mistakes are expensive […]

The Tour Du Mont Blanc… Well Almost

The Tour Du Mont Blanc… Well Almost

Woah. Europe has been a ride to say the least. So far I felt challenged to survive outdoors, extreme love and warmth, budding new friendships, and awe of all sorts of landscapes. But last night was one of the most challenging yet. I fell asleep after a big warm meal, tucked in my sleeping bag […]

A Bit Aimless Lately

A Bit Aimless Lately

I’ll be honest. Traveling has it’s ups and downs. Ups are the freedom, the level of independence, the belief in spontaneity, and a feeling of purpose. The purpose stems from feeling present and feeling like I’m pursuing some of the qualities that lead to my definition of success in a life. But I also miss […]

Mom In India

Mom In India

Holy cow! And what an appropriate phrase. My mother in India was the funniest and most wonderful experience of all time. Funny from the moment she got off the plane and a little girl gawking at her came up wanting to just shake her hand to being mauled by a passing-by cow to the sheer […]

Touristy Thailand

Touristy Thailand

“It’s so touristy here,” I found myself telling me mom on a whatsapp call last night.”Oh I see, like Mexico?” She asked. “Yes! Exactly… like Spring Break in Cancun. Every where I’ve been, the entire infrastructure is made for tourists. 10 hotels on one street block, and 5 bars, it’s insane!” I said. Acording to […]

Check-in

Check-in

I thought I would be tired and worn out traveling, but I actually feel like I’ve tapped into this endless supply of adrenaline. I have been so comfortable in the places I’ve stayed. I just finished a 4-night stay at this lovely hostel with comfy quilt comforters, white sheets, and dark wood bunkbeds. The stairs […]

Never Really Alone

Never Really Alone

I think that the biggest myth of human existence is that we experience this entire life alone. But, we are actually infinite beings. I had this thought as I was slapping mosquitos and on the verge of tears because there’s no tampons for sale in Thailand and I had to buy cotton balls, and I […]

Day 1 Feels

Day 1 Feels

The second my dad drove away from the airport it hit me. I am free. My heart flooded with warmth and my cheeks were flushed trying to hold my enormous smile. I am alone. I am alert. I am me. The entire 25 hour flight (that’s including the 3 layovers) went by like a breeze. […]
