On top of the wide array of adventure (and relaxing) activities available, this country could not be easier to travel to. If you’re American, then you’re  in luck – I didn’t have to exchange a dime of my US currency!

Blogger Update: Plan To Change Your Plan

Plan To Change Your Plan

As a natural-born planner, the hardest thing for me to do is veer off course of a well thought out plan. But guess what? Life happens! Things are always going to come up that you didn’t plan for. A lot of unnecessary anxiety can be completely bypassed by going in the with right mindset. Plan to change your plans!

Note-Taking Blog Post

Over the past few weeks I’ve discovered that anyone can become a workaholic when you love what you’re doing.

Researching this blog and travel adventure has given me life again. I find myself in an almost OCD-like frenzy plugging away on my keyboard at all hours, and I like it. No, I love it. I’m excited.

If it takes me the whole year that’s fine, if it doesn’t and I get to my goal early, then I’ll happily depart abroad ahead of schedule.
