Madrid, Spain

There is absolutely nothing sexier than speaking a second language. To me, it’s the closest thing we’ll ever get to having a super power.

Koh Phangan, Thailand

I blame the media. I blame society. I blame our country.

Collectively, they’ve succeeded at making the world out to be this terrifying space of rapists, assaulters, and creeps. And I’m not just¬†talking about¬†Donald Trump’s residence.

But outside of that and our country, the idea that the world is something to be terrified of, especially if you venture alone is something I want to try to help debunk, because the reality is the fears we have only exists inside our heads.…

Hug attack by the cutest little humans

One of the secrets most travel bloggers won’t tell you, is that a lot¬†of them started off as English teachers to be able to afford to live and travel abroad.

And there’s¬†some pretty amazing companies out there like English First, that are a TEFL certification away from landing you in a country like¬†China, where they not only pay for your flights there, but also give you a signing bonus and travel voucher to get you started!…

Donald Trump Is Everything Wrong With America | TheBlogAbroad.com

If Donald Trump were a flight, he’d be a one-way ticket to hell.

Yet half the country has already boarded the plane, and despite the terrible turbulence [his track record], unstable engine [his mind], and a pilot so unqualified to run anything besides his mouth, we still have people willing to take¬†flight to Mount Misogyny anyway.…

While I’m 100% aware of how fortunate and blessed I feel every morning to wake up and do what never really feels like work, I think there’s a voice¬†missing from the conversation that’s so important, especially if you’ve ever found yourself scrolling through my¬†or another traveler’s¬†Instagram¬†feed, feeling inadequate about your own life.…

Ultra Europe Music Festival | TheBlogAbroad.com
