Prepping for an international trip: Some things to keep in mind.

If you’re a newbie to traveling abroad, you may be wondering just where to begin. Don’t let the fact that it’s a little more involved stop you…it’s really not so hard and the rewards are well worth the effort. That’s why I wrote this guide to help you with all the things you’re going to need (or want) when you leave your country to visit another…


Wanderlust Wednesday: Sofia, Bulgaria

I haven’t posted a Wanderlust Wednesday in a while, but today I wanted to start it back up again with a post on the beautiful European city of Sofia, Bulgaria.

If you’re in Southern California like me, you might be looking for good campsites that aren’t too far from home. Sure, it’s fun to go camping at Sequoia or Yosemite or Big Sur, but those places are a pretty long drive to get to, and sometimes you just need to get away for a weekend.
