Week In-stagram Review Sri Lanka

4 Comments 21 November 2014

I went backwards in time from fall to summer this week and crossed continents into Asia. I landed in Sri Lanka for my third time to attend a Travel Blogging Conference and to soak up a little warm weather before I entered back into the heart of winter for the holidays. The conference included a [...]

Fabulous Fredericton

5 Comments 18 November 2014

“What? Why would you go to Fredericton?” – that seemed to be the most asked question when I told people we were flying in/out of Fredericton in New Brunswick Canada.

Three times every day 50+ people sit down at wooden tables with colorful plastic plates piled high with food at Project Peru, the refuge my niece and I had been volunteering at outside of Lima for a week. I knew it was no easy process to put food on those plates every day, as kids [...]

Week In-stagram Review Wild Atlantic Way

4 Comments 30 October 2014

I moved a bit quicker through 3 counties along the Wild Atlantic Way this last week. My driving moved up yet another level closer to ‘local’ as I zipped past tourists and tractors on the small winding roads that reminded me of ribbons blowing in the wind. At one point I actually decided that I [...]

How do you find good, legitimate volunteering opportunities when you travel? I get this question all the time and like most things in life – it takes some work and some luck.
