On finding parking in Los Angeles.

There’s something you should know if you’re planning on coming to Los Angeles: it’s a difficult place to find a parking spot in.You might laugh and think, no big deal…I can deal with that. Seriously though, I’m telling you: parking in Los Angeles is hard. Really hard. Telling you that it’s hard might be the understatement of the century, actually. Let me re-phrase that:

Finding parking in Los Angeles is an extremely, incredibly frustrating activity.

I mean, come ON. Who builds a city that has such crap public transportation that the entire city is forced to get around by car, and then NOT build in suitable parking? Honestly!

Hungry? Try one of these sandwiches from around the world.

Ah, the humble sandwich. We’ve all eaten them, and we’ve all enjoyed them. However, a sandwich is more than just something you might wrap up and pack in your lunch box. Cultures around the world have taken the sandwich and brought their own distinct flavor to this culinary staple food, so it’s possible to travel all around the world eating sandwiches and try something completely new each time. Let’s discover some amazing sandwiches from around the world, shall we?

It Might be Time for a Staycation…

We can’t all travel all the time. I wish we could! However, that doesn’t mean we can’t have fun lives full of new and exciting experiences, relaxing getaways, and fun filled weekends. I tend to lean heavily on the staycation as a means to get me through the boring parts of life between “real” travel experiences.

Wanderlust Wednesday: Orlando, Florida

Although I tend to gravitate more towards cities with historical significance, a different culture, or perhaps just some incredible nature than I do “tourist cities”, I do find myself curious about Orlando. Would I like it? Would I not? I suppose one of these days I’ll have to go check it out for myself and find out. For now, let’s take a look at what Orlando has to offer on this Wanderlust Wednesday…

On Big, Scary Australian Spiders

“Oh, don’t worry Love. That’s a golden orb weaver. It’s totally harmless.”
I had been standing still and gaping with a horrified look on my face as I beheld one of the largest spiders I had ever seen when I heard the voice behind me. I spun around to find a pair of the most adorable little old ladies I had ever seen, out for a leisurely stroll in Sydney’s Royal Botanic Gardens.
The smaller and frailer of two went on to say, “It’s the small ones you can’t see that you need to worry about!”

Career options for digital nomads.

So…you want to be a digital nomad? There is no time like the present to start taking steps towards achieving your dreams!

If you’re sitting here scratching your head and saying, digital whaaaaat?, a digital nomad is a person who has taken their careers completely online so they can work from anywhere in the world, as long as there is an internet connection.

Ok, so maybe that beautiful beach in the photo above isn’t likely to have an internet connection (in fact, I know it doesn’t, because I took that photo in Australia and it was a pretty remote place that involved a drive down a long dirt road to get to).

Still, if you have an internet connection and the right career, you can travel without having to quit your job. Pretty cool, right?

Wanderlust Wednesday:Paris

Anyway, my love for Paris leaves me constantly dreaming of those beautiful Parisian streets as I imagine myself sipping un café au lait at a sidewalk cafe. That’s why today I’m going to indulge in my Francophile desires and devote this Wanderlust Wednesday to my favorite city: Paris, France. Special thanks to the following Instagrammers for fueling my Wanderlust…
