What IS adventure, really?

You know why I adventure. (Or maybe you don’t, so READ IT.) But, adventures themselves aren’t one-size-fits-all. What constitutes an adventure for me might seem too boring, dangerous, odd, uncomfortable [insert word of choice] to you. And vice versa. And, guys. I love that about adventuring. It is what you make it. So, real quick, …

To All My Fellow Bucket Listers: Are you Dreaming or Doing?

We’re only one quarter into 2018, and I already feel like I’ve adventured enough for half the year. No complaints, though! Enough is not a word in an adventurer’s vocabulary. There’s no such thing as enough, only what’s next? But, as much as I’m always itching for the next, I also enjoy reflecting. Not just …

2018: The Year of Bucketlisting

Where to next? I get that question a lot, especially after traveling solo to Europe three times in 2017. And, to be honest, I actually already have three trips scheduled between now and mid-March. That’s right. I’m not wasting any time in 2018. But the short answer? San Francisco, mid-January. Back in November, I snagged …

Serious About Adventuring

Today, I felt like reflecting. I guess you could call this a #flashbackFriday -esque post. But really, it felt like time to take inventory of the adventures I’ve experienced since I got good and serious about adventuring. Good and serious back in May 2016. Prior to that point, I adventured. Oh sure! But I wasn’t …

The Nomad’s Life for Me

Do you ever think about becoming a nomad? I do. Only every single day. Being nomadic perfectly fits that arrow life I’m always striving to pursue. Though I only just recently adopted the ‘arrow life’ label, it’s truly been my heart’s desire since I was a wee girl in tiny town Michigan, USA. I’m so …

The YOLO Lifestyle

YOLO or FOMO? I randomly asked myself this question the other day. Not even sure why. But random thoughts pop into my head so often that it doesn’t even phase me now. So anyway, YOLO vs. FOMO. This prompted me to ponder the idea behind each one – beyond the obvious cool factor of using …
