How to Get Back On your Backpacking Budget

While going through old photos to work on this little blog, I’ve come to realize I had slept in some very strange and small places. Some places were fun like castles, fancy hotels (occasional treat from my boyfriend), and cool French houses, but some were failures, like attics, floors, and McDonalds benches. One of the

Boutique Gems of Ashwem beach

Ashwem Beach is a very hip little spot in North Goa. Near Mandrem and Arambol, it’s known for being less spoiled than others, as well as being populated with turtles and dolphins (although I've never seen any in four years so, hmmm).

8 Reasons to Try London Again

I was lucky enough to go back to England, and I am so excited to tell you about it. I wasn’t going to mess up this re-do, it was a second chance in London. I had already seen “what you’re supposed to see” years ago. London was the first city I went to in Europe.

Thanksgiving Dinner in a Toaster Oven in India

I didn’t think Thanksgiving food in India was going to be possible in Goa. We don’t get Campbell’s Soup. How can I make green bean casserole? Not a chance I’d ever find Stove Top stuffing. No one sells turkeys unless you order ahead of time (we’ve already ordered one for Christmas). But the biggest obstacle
