Dangers Of Traveling While Female

Ireland - KL

"Travel is little beds and cramped bathrooms. It’s old television sets and slow Internet connections. Travel is extraordinary conversations with ordinary people. It’s waiters, gas station attendants, and housekeepers becoming the most interesting people in the world. It’s churches that are compelling enough to enter. It’s McDonald’s being a luxury. It’s the realization that you may have been born in the wrong country. Travel is a smile that leads to a conversation in broken English. It’s the epiphany that pretty girls smile the same way all over the world. Travel is tipping 10% and being embraced for it. Travel is the same white T-shirt again tomorrow. Travel is accented sex after good wine and too many unfiltered cigarettes. Travel is flowing in the back of a bus with giggly strangers. It’s a street full of bearded backpackers looking down at maps. Travel is wishing for one more bite of whatever that just was. It’s the rediscovery of walking somewhere. It’s sharing a bottle of liquor on an overnight train with a new friend. Travel is “Maybe I don’t have to do it that way when I get back home.” It’s nostalgia for studying abroad that one semester. Travel is realizing that “age thirty” should be shed of its goddamn stigma."

Bike trip in the morning!

With the ever-so-fabulous Swartz.

I’m about to graduate high school and go off to college I just finished my third year of college and will be returning in the fall for two more years - but sometimes I wonder what it would be like to just quit school and travel the world.  I think I would learn more that way.

"What is that feeling when you’re driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? — it’s the too-huge world vaulting us, and it’s good-by. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies."

Jack Kerouac "On the Road"

I miss friends who actually want to hang out without interwebs and phones.

Though I obviously use both, technology really kinda grosses me out sometimes. 

Someone go on an adventure with me where no social media-esque items are allowed?
