Being Home After Travel is Hard

Being Home After Travel is Hard

It’s been about 3 months since I’ve been back in America after my adventures in Asia. It was an exciting move back, an endless week or two of welcome home parties and storytelling. Now that the dust has settled, life has become, more or less, a routine. Work, exercise, dinners, drinks.

What Your Instagram Says About Your Travel Habits

What Your Instagram Says About Your Travel Habits

While not every aspect of our lives on social media is true to a tee, I think there is something to be said for the type of content we actually upload. Much like the clothes we choose to put on our backs every morning, what we choose to put on Instagram sends to the world a message about us. What do your photos say about you and your travel habits?

5 Reasons You Should Learn Chinese (Part 1)

5 Reasons You Should Learn Chinese (Part 1)

An actual conversation that occurred shortly before I moved to China in 2010: My Friend: You’re moving to China? Me: That’s right. My Friend: You’re crazy. Completely nuts. (making “cuckoo eyes” at me) Me: Why? Why is that so crazy? Lots of people do it. My Friend: Because they all speak Chinese there! You’ll probably die. Or maybe get killed. At the very least you’ll get maimed and put in jail. You’re doomed. Me: I’m already learning Chinese! I’ll just get better and better once I’m there. My Friend: I’m not visiting you in jail in China. Here, maybe. In China, no. Me: Whatever. I’m going to learn Chinese. Now, much to the chagrin of my “friend”, I have yet to step foot inside a police station (except to do residency paperwork, I swear!) after three and a half years in China and Taiwan. Neither am I killed, dead, or maimed. Have I learned Chinese? Yes! Am I fluent? Well, not exactly. But I can get around just fine, make conversation with most people, and read a little. Reading is the most difficult part, if you ask me. Once, I even talked my way out of a traffic ticket. Learning Chinese- […]

Inspirational Travel Quote of the Week: Ryu Murakami

Inspirational Travel Quote of the Week: Ryu Murakami

First things first! Where did you see your most memorable sunset?  My most memorable sunset was the very first sunset that my husband and I saw together. That was back in 2005, before we were husband and wife. We had just arrived on Koh Phanghan, Thailand and checked in to our private bungalow overlooking Haad Rin Beach (which literally translates in Thai to Sunset Beach). Just as we had dropped our bags off and stepped out onto our balcony, we were rewarded with the most magnificent sunset I’ve ever seen. The sky was washed in brilliant oranges and yellows. That was the first of many sunsets together, but it remains to this day one of my favorite moments together. About the quote: This apt travel quote was written by Japanese novelist and filmmaker Ryū Murakami. Although Ryū shares the same last name with his contemporary Haruki Murakami, the two writers are not related, but they do share a love for American pop culture. The above-mentioned quote can be found in his novel Coin Locker Babies, which was written in 1980. The story is about two boys who are abandoned in their infancy in coin lockers in a Tokyo train station during the summer of […]
