Why women should all eat alone | The Blog Abroad

Many of you have probably seen the BBC News article floating around this week about a restaurant in New York (Nello is the name if you’re curious) that told a woman she couldn’t sit at the bar alone as the owner was wanting to, and I quote, “crackdown on hookers.”

How considerate. *eye roll*

But it brought attention to the much bigger picture of the stigmas placed around a woman who, by choice, wants to do something alone.…

The good, the bad, and the ugly sides of influencer marketing | The Blog Abroad

Fun fact: Many breakfasts die a cold, slow death due to the deadly-long waiting times from these kind of Instagram photos.

There’s only one of three reasons why you clicked this article: either you’re an influencer, you’re a brand, or you’re just really nosey. Ha! I humbly welcome the audience of all three, because with all the negative press the influencer industry has been getting lately, I thought I’d chime in with some thoughts to hopefully balance out the conversation and add some perspective to both sides.…

How dare you bother to be concerned with your looks and your photos while you’re traveling.

How To Avoid Being Dragged Off A Plane By United Airlines

While the title and my subsequent text might make it seem like I’m making light of someone else’s trauma, I think it’s also important to find ways to use jest and humor rather than outrage, so we don’t further perpetuate the declining popularity of business as usual in America.

After all, this local viral uproar has become international news overnight.…

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.…

Now before we dive into half the reason you all clicked this article to begin with (hi pervs), it’s hard not to laugh at the boldness of the gorgeous, and too-aggressive-for-my-taste, ways of some of the Italian speciMEN of this world.

“365 countries, 12 continents, 1 billion cities, 2 planets, and counting!”

…one might read on a douchey traveler’s Instagram bio.

There’s always a heavy debate within the travel community about why you should or shouldn’t count your countries. And even if you secretly did, why that number doesn’t need to be flaunted around like a status symbol.…

Cat-calling. The foolproof way to spot men who were dropped on their heads multiple times as babies.

As a solo traveler, I’ve encountered them in every shape and size, as they shamelessly pursue and annoy the living crap out of women who are simply minding their own business.

Their goal is to get your attention, make you uncomfortable, and beg for acknowledgement of their oversized ego that unmistakably compensates for their undersized penis.…
