Traveling was instilled in me during childhood: whether it was a summer in Kenya, a weekend trip into the countryside of Burundi, or a road trip to the nearest town to enjoy an afternoon by the lake, my Mother made sure that we traveled and ventured out.
That love for traveling and exploring has stayed with me over the years.
This will be the first time since I was 17 that I will be unemployed. I have no idea what a budget is but I will soon learn. I know I can live with a lot less than I'm used to. I've already gotten rid of all my possession and my car will be the last thing to go. However, I'm determined to travel the way I want for as long as I feel the desire.
I am starting my year travel plans with a trip to Haiti. As I am preparing for this 10 day, 3 city tour. I will show you how to pack lite, find inexpensive lodging, eat and play like a local and give you an opportunity to purchase goods from Haiti. I also will be blogging and vlogging my trip while in Haiti to show you why you should visit Haiti. Follow my blog (HERE) for more updates.
Hiking, A Love Story.
Don't backpack alone, is the prevailing advice from backpacking books and government agencies. They say the risk is too great if you were injured or got lost with no one to go for help. And they are right - the risk is there, and a person backpacking alone has a responsiblity to be very careful to avoid trouble.
