This ain’t your mama’s travel blog.
I once had a teacher tell me, “Rebekah, you’re a very unusual girl.”
I really liked that she said that, so in keeping with the theme, this is a very unusual travel site!
What I love most about traveling are the stories – the stories I collect, the stories of fellow travelers, and especially the stories of locals I’ve met and gotten to know along my journey.
To me, getting hotel discounts and racking up airline miles is kind of boring.
We’ll talk about it, sure, but I’m much more interested in hearing about the time you got scammed in a Vietnamese poker game, or telling you about the time I ran my motorbike rental into a tree, or introducing you to my friend who cycled through India all by her damn self.
SOMETIMES YOU WANNA DIG DEEP…..
Each blog post and video contains a juicy narrative travel tale that I hope will inspire and entertain you. If you’re in the mood to dive in and indulge your escapist fantasies, click the “dig deep” button next to each post.
SOMETIMES YOU WANT IT QUICK AND DIRTY.
If you’re busy, or stressed, or just need-some-information-now-dammit, I totally get it.
At the end of every story, I’ll include a quick+dirty takeaway section where you can get all the practical info you crave, like
* how much the hotel will cost
* whether or not you should take a taxi from the airport
* which neighborhood is creepy at night, and
* where you can find a great vegan restaurant when you’re in the middle of nowhere in Nepal.
Simply click the “quick and dirty” button at the top of the post and you’ll be magically whisked away to the bottom of the page, where you can get the info you need and get your questions answered in the comments section.
