Taking ‘gender’ out of the travel equation

Gender equality and social views on women are issues that places all over this world still struggle with. So it is to no surprise that when a woman is traveling alone, it’s conceived by most to be more dangerous and risky than it would be for a man.

In this interesting Huffington Post article by Elizabeth Sharma, What men need to know about women who travel solo, she shares her insights after encountering a man who attempts to inform her of the danger she could find herself in during her stay in South Africa.

New York City: a Mini-Vacay done right

What a better way to kickstart a new week than by introducing my newly added series, Monday Mini-Vacay Recap!

For those who enjoy a nice weekend getaway like I do, you may also enjoy indulging your coworkers on how unbelievably awesome your trip was come Monday at work (or for myself & the other unemployed millennials, it’s more like sharing them with your pet).

For my first Monday Mini-Vacay Recap, I’ll be sharing my weekend trip up to the world-renowned New York City!

Europe through a panoramic view

Since I am playing catch up on writing about the final leg of my European trip, I wanted to share a project I’ve been working on that will help paint the picture of my time abroad.

Under the Travel page, I’ve added the subpage Europe. There, you will find all of the posts and projects from my European trip. My most recent project, Europe through a panoramic view, gives the ultimate highlights of my trip through panoramic pictures I captured on my iPhone 6.

Since I am more of a visual person/learner, what better way to illustrate the beauty I was subjected to on this trip than through photography? Although my pictures don’t come close to seeing these phenomenal views in person, I hope they captured a sliver of their beauty for you all to enjoy!

Gettin’ back to business

My 4 month excursion through Europe has sadly come to an end and after a 6 week hiatus from my blog, it is time to get back to writing!

Moving forward, be on the lookout for weekly posts about more shenanigans from my trip, what I’m getting into this summer, and what I have cookin’ up for the future.

Reflection Time

As I surpass the halfway point of my trip, I decided to write a reflection piece on Forever En Route. In this piece, I highlight a few of the challenges I’ve faced, insight on other solo female travelers I’ve met, and a handful of life takeaways I’ve learned through traveling.

To read more, wander on over the Traveling Solo Dolo page and you’ll find my reflection piece, Come meet me half way.

Also, I’m always looking for ways to improve my blog, writing, images, content, etc. Any and all feedback is encouraged and welcomed!

Thanks fam!

Don’t worry, I didn’t forget you Copenhagen!

I apologize for how long it’s taken me to write about some of the cities I’ve been too. Traveling to 3 new cities back to back within 2 weeks & jotting notes down to blog about later presents it’s difficulties!

Nevertheless, no excuses. I want to share with you the main highlights of my trip to Copenhagen. I will be adding this piece and one for each city I’ve visited for you to check this out on the Forever En Route‘s Travel section. Continue reading “Don’t worry, I didn’t forget you Copenhagen!”
