Borjomi vs. Atlanta: A Tale of Two Georgias

Borjomi vs. Atlanta: A Tale of Two Georgias

August 8, 2022: People ask me here sometimes, as they often do of foreigners everywhere, where I'm from. "America," I reply. Then they ask about the state. They usually offer guesses like California or New York. I disappoint them. I reluctantly supply the answer,...

Sierra Leone – A Diamond Road Trip

Sierra Leone – A Diamond Road Trip

I don't know what day it is anymore. Time is something marked as the sun passes through the sky and then it is night and the dogs start to bark, and then it is light again. My world is three colours, the blue vast sky, green dense jungle, and red sticky soil....

The Fabled Island of La Digue

Gorgeous beaches and relaxing vibes are two things that an ideal Island holiday is comprised of. This is exactly what I anticipated before visiting the Indian Ocean gem, Seychelles, a couple of years back. And what the island of Mahe gave me was at par with my...

Italy May Have Invented Pizza,
but Di Fara Perfected It

New York is one of my favourite cities. I first visited the city four years ago, and it made a vivid and broad impression on me. I could not get enough of the towering skyscrapers, Times Square, Central Park, and New York-style pizza. Yes, I never knew that I would...

Finding Warmth when Amalfi is Cold

Finding Warmth when Amalfi is Cold

My thick sweater and blue jeans reflected the London winter I left several hours before. Amalfi’s sun now broke through my warm clothes, bringing out a forgotten stickiness. After nearly twenty-seven hours of traveling with two buses, a plane, and a train ride,...

Thailand’s Koh Chang

Thailand’s Koh Chang

Bang! Bang! Bang! After an interval of 5 seconds, I caught it again -- the brief and strange metal banging noise that sounded like two pieces of sheet metal hitting each other. I could hear nothing else than that. It was peacefully quiet and hot like in the middle of...

Imágenes de Merida (Mayan Capital)

Imágenes de Merida (Mayan Capital)

  Centuries-old conquistadores' colonial architecture of Merida.   Some kind of indigenous-inspired mural. Like the feral redheaded kid in Talladega Nights said of anarchy when he went buck-wild on the neighbor with the garden hose, "I don't know what it...

Traversing Neverland: Ha Giang Loop

Traversing Neverland: Ha Giang Loop

I've had an out-of-body experience or two in my life. At the very least, a brief spiritual awakening. My first was being front row to a Red Hot Chili Peppers show. A feat I accomplished by staying glued to the railing for six hours prior to those first few...

Antalya day trips – Duden Waterfalls and Phaselis

Kiribati: A Ring in the Pacific

Kiribati: A Ring in the Pacific

"Tying up to a pier and disembarking through the passenger gangway isn't an option," our Captain said. Never did I imagine I would one day work onboard a cruise ship for almost seven months. Let alone sail away to an atoll that for me and for any other well-traveled...

Essex Street in Salem: Discovering Witches and Mariners

Essex Street in Salem: Discovering Witches and Mariners

Salem in Massachusetts, abounding in Puritan and American history is perhaps best known for the 1692 witch trials. My knowledge was restricted to magazines and websites which variously have described it as having a "witchy heritage, a haven for fans of "the occult and...

A Few Solo Female Travel Tips

A Few Solo Female Travel Tips

Since I was little, I dreamed of seeing the world. I grew up Googling pictures of ancient sites, making plans for when I was going to visit famous cities, and dreaming of adventures around the globe. I was completely wanderlust. My patience ran out by the time I was...
