My niece is spending a semester abroad in Nepal. In honor of her adventure, it’s time I finally publish our adventure in Nepal... from… ahem… two years ago. So yeah, that pregnancy and baby thing really set me back on our travel posts. Better late than never!
Muscat was an interesting place to visit. We stayed at Safeer Plaza, walked around the National Museum of Oman (which unfortunately was closed the day we were there. But the grounds were lovely) We visited Riyam Amusement Park and the Fort across the street from the Riyam monument. We checked out the Marina Bandar Al [...]
Jordan was my absolute favorite part of our time in the middle east. The people were incredibly friendly, the food was DELICIOUS, the ruins spectacular and the Dead Sea so much fun for muddy floats. I highly recommend a visit here! My Mom joined us on our trip which made it even better. We stayed [...]
One of the many surprises in Sri Lanka were the opportunites for close encounters with rare and beautiful animals. One of the highlights of our trip was a visit to the the Sea Turtle Hatchery in Habaraduwa. During our visit we learned that decades after their own hatch-day, female turtles return to the same beach where they were [...]
Sri Lanka. The clean, majestic, natural beauty of this country left me breathless and there is no better way to experience this than from a window of the train. This day was out of a dream. Maybe it’s my love for period movies combined with a deep yearning to be back in nature but this experience is one I will never forget. It's worth a trip to this country just to ride the train.
I am gitty. Heart fluttering over the moon freakishly happy. I want to jump up and down and yelp! Something in my soul yearns for accents, diversity and newness and I’m here. It’s here. With each person I see that is on the surface, so different from myself, I feel like I’m experiencing something so very special. For so long I have craved more variety in my life and environments where I can walk out the front door and be confronted with opportunities to learn and grow. To me, it feels comforting to hear different languages and accents, different colors and clothing. It makes me feel like I am a part of something. There is so much of this beautiful world to see and explore, that even the few minor frustrating moments of traveling, are so deeply worth it when in the end it’s pushing my square or small perceptions of people and culture.
