Don’t Do It for the Gram

Are we Instagramming because we travel, or do we travel so we can Instagram? I was struck by this question in the opening of a recent Robb Report article, titled: Instagram is Changing the Way We Travel (and Not Necessarily for the Better). While I won’t give you a full summary of the article (read …

Do the Things That Scare You (Like Bungee Jumping in Switzerland)

There was a time in my life when I swore I’d never go bungee jumping. Never ever ever. I was open to skydiving, but falling head first, hooked to a cord, with the ground so close and no parachute? Noooo thanks. That was my solid stance on the matter until two years ago. Until I …

Adventures in Fashion: My Charleston Fashion Week Volunteer Experience

Fashion Week. Attending the Holy Grail in NYC is every fashionista’s dream. Mine included. Easier said than done, though. I once stood outside one of the NYFW shows, watching all the VIP ticketholders arrive. But being one of those ticketholders? Pretty sure I'd need to know somebody AND save up a whole lotta cash to …

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 …
