A Backpacker’s Guide to Paris

A Backpacker’s Guide to Paris

Ahhh Paris, j’adore…my dream city ever since I can remember. I had some mixed feelings about coming to Paris, since it was somewhere I’d always dreamed of going, and I wondered if it would feel much different traveling here than if I hadn’t already backpacked around remote parts of the exciting developing worlds of India, Nepal, and SE Asia. I wasn’t going to let any past travel experiences get in the way of me having a new and wonderful experience, so I…

If you’re like me and new to England, and one of the many who live outside London, it can sometimes be a hastle getting back before it’s too late and the trains are no longer running and you end up stuck.

Tips for Backpacking Mysterious Myanmar

Tips for Backpacking Mysterious Myanmar

Myanmar (AKA Burma) is a country that was completely cut off from tourism until just a few years ago when it finally opened its borders to foreigners after decades of military-imposed isolation.

The ancient city of Bagan has more than 2,000 temples, some of them over…

The Killing Fields

The Killing Fields

Phnom Penh, Cambodia   I got to Phnom Penh by bus from Siem Riep in the late afternoon, so I didn’t end up getting to see much of anything. It was a really rough 8 hour journey with constant random stops where they let people come on the bus to sell us things like fruit or drinks. At one of the food stops they were selling fried cockroaches, which I thought was really disgusting! They were also selling fried maggots and beetles….

A strong sense of spirituality saturated the entire place, and I hadn’t even made it out of the airport yet. When…

I decided to get rid of these useless ‘things’ we think we need every day, and packed almost everything I owned into one suitcase. It was truly a weight off my shoulders, and I felt much better after getting rid of…
