Traveling is an art form. It can be impossible to perfect, but it helps to read about other people’s experiences, and mistakes, before you leave. That way you can laugh about all the mistakes you’ll make, and get to know the area of the world you’re traveling to a little more intimately. The following post is compiled of essays and books I’ve read, and think everyone should read before, or during, their next adventure. Continue reading “Travel Essays to Read Before Your Next Trip”
What’s better than reading about travel? Watching travel videos on YouTube, of course! It’s free, and the quality of these videos is above and beyond anything I find on cable tv.

Whether it be the U.S.A., China, South Africa, Japan, these videos have it all. Continue reading “My Favourite Travel Youtube Channels”
Not much has happened in the past week, besides the fact that I was sick all last weekend– aka why there is no normal blog post this week. I have a couple ideas cooking, but found myself unable to really sit down and write down my thoughts. So, instead of writing, I spent my time on (you guessed it) Pinterest.

So, if you’d like to follow me there you can do so here, and if you just want to see my blog posts, you can follow this board only.
Next week (probably Monday) there will be a new post!
See you all then,

Before this summer, and the three English courses I took during it, I’d never given much thought to walking across the world. Yet, after reading Cheryl Strayed’s award winning book, Wild, walking is all I want to do. Continue reading “Book Review: Wild by Cheryl Strayed”
Back in March, during Spring Break, a friend and I visited Caprock Canyon, in Briscoe, Texas. The only other canyon I’ve ever visited is Palo Duro Canyon, but that was when I was eight years old, so Caprock is the first canyon I’ve been to that I can actively remember. It’s also the first canyon I’ve hiked in; which was an experience. Continue reading “Capturing Caprock Canyon”
