Travel Inspiration Series: Zoe Tuckey

Travel Inspiration Series: Zoe Tuckey

One of my favorite aspects of travel is the friendships I build with fascinating people from all over our sweet world. Zoe is one of those friends who inspire me as a writer, a traveler, and a lover of life. I had a chance to chat with Zoe about some of her experiences and I walked away in typical fashion: stirred in my soul. JG: You’ve had quite a fascinating, dare I say exotic, childhood. Tell me a bit about your family and where you call home. ZT: When people say things like this I always find it strange because I don’t see anything unusual about my upbringing until someone points it out. Yes, I guess I have had a fascinating childhood! My parents moved to India when I was about 2 years old. I’ve done a bit of moving around since then but have found myself back where I started. I think I will always call India home, but also like to see myself as some sort of world citizen. That is if the world will have me! JG: Having grown up in an Eastern culture, what values shaped you and where does travel fit in those values? ZT: People […]

Korean Cosmetics: A Beginner’s Guide

Korean Cosmetics: A Beginner’s Guide

If there’s one thing I’ve been turned onto in Korea (besides blunt bangs) that I’m positively obsessed with it’s beauty products and beauty chains. They’re absolutely amazing – which is hardly a surprise considering Korean women and men have envious perfect porcelain complexions. For the longest time I’d thought their smooth skin was a matter of genes, and I sulked that I hadn’t won the gene lottery.

Unexpected Journeys of Travel

Unexpected Journeys of Travel

We stepped onto Australian soil an hour before the New Year’s fireworks. We had friends here. We had a place to stay. We had a timeline for our stay. We had absolutely no idea about anything else. Where would we work? What would this year as temporary residents involve? Who would we meet? How would a year in this city shape us? It’s nearly August now, but the journey plows forward as unexpected as any I could have imagined on the plane ride over. Not only am I a writer and a traveler, but I am now a manager of a small business in the food industry. I never saw it coming. Then again, do we ever? Isn’t that kind of the point of travel? On Initiative January, 2014 The days are long and hot. It’s summertime in Australia. We spend much of our time easing into a working life: applying for tax numbers, opening a bank account, looking for reliable transport, job searching online, writing cover letters. Setting up a new life takes time. Waiting, though, is seldom as easy as it is humbling. The world doesn’t turn on our time, it seems. Once the foundations were set for […]

5 Tips For Strong Expat Relationships

5 Tips For Strong Expat Relationships

I’ve been hesitant to write this article for sometime now. Mainly because I hardly fit the bill of being able to give any type of love advice when my own journey to a relationship was filled with tears, heart ache, and too many pints of ice cream to honestly admit. Despite my lack of expertise on the subject, I’m going to try to tackle it anyway because the number one question I get asked in emails and Facebook messages is “Judith, how does one make an expat relationship work?”

The Secret Wealth of Travel

The Secret Wealth of Travel

My wife and I were in the process of selling and storing the great majority of our accumulated possessions. At the same time, we were meticulously choosing the handful of items we would carry with us across the world. I discovered in the tensions of storing, simplifying, and selecting, that there is a sacredness to our possessions.
