I often get asked, “where is your favorite place you’ve been?” Lebanon. My #1 favorite country in the world (that I’ve visited, so out of 57 countries, Lebanon #1). WHY? Vibe. Beirut is the main spot, but there’s also so much outside the capital. Lebanon is Mediterranean and so you get that crystal blue water, […]Read More Adventure with Aly: Lebanon
If you’ve ever sat next to me on a flight, as many of you have, I am sorry 😉 Thank you for letting me jump onto you, hug you, hold your hand with my excessively sweaty palms, shake uncontrollably, curl up in a ball in crash position, maybe even hit your arm really hard to […]Read More Confessions of a travelholic: I am TERRIFIED of flying
Here’s the scene: I am sitting on top of my Patagonia backpack, on the floor, in a small little ticketing room, in the New Delhi Airport, cracking up at this little situation I’m in. They won’t let me in the main doors of the airport. My Uzbekistan Airways ticket confirmation email says my departure flight […]Read More Stan #6: Uzbekistan!
You Did What? Are you crazy? Do you know what you’re doing? Is this really a smart idea? Have you consulted other’s opinions on this? Those are just a few of the questions I got, along with a lot of raised eyebrows and judgey, yet jealous, eyes, when I share that I quit my job […]Read More Three Keys to Quitting My Job and Traveling for a Year(ish)
(Spoiler: I did leave India, despite what some people may have thought: I didn’t decide to live there forever…plus Lebanon was coming up so of course I left for that…) Have you ever been on holiday and having so much fun, your heart is so full, that you would do anything to not get […]Read More I didn’t want to leave India, so I didn’t!
I cannot remember the last time I stayed in the same place for an entire month. It has legitimately been 7 years (since I started working at Epic). Even though I didn’t travel for work in Dubai, I went on a trip at least once a month, if not twice, or three 😉 – every […]Read More April: Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh
While hiking Adam’s Peak was the bucket list item for me in Sri Lanka, my day at the Elephant Freedom Project should be on everyone’s list when visiting Sri Lanka! One of my goals while traveling is to spend some “karma yoga” time in the country (definition: Karma yoga can be applied to everything you […]Read More Elephant Freedom Project
Getting there: I booked Sri Lankan Airlines from Kochi. When I booked the ticket, they have that option where you can bid for an upgrade. At the time I was still in fulll-swing job mode with salary…I bid the least amount of $60. Totally forgot I did that, and turns out I got upgraded. $60 […]Read More Adam’s Peak Pilgrimage: 5,550 steps of adventure
If you had told me two years ago that my last day at Epic, I’d be jumping on a plane for a DHA+IBM+Epic trip….well I don’t even think we would’ve been at the laughing stage yet, probably would’ve all given quite a dirty look… This trip is really special because I get to travel with […]Read More Kerala: Work family to travel family
Well, that’s a good question. Truth is I’m not sure, and that’s the adventure of it. What I know as of March 19, 2018 I’m a full-time nomad. I have the first few steps planned out, spending time on some personal goals and spending more time in countries I fell in love with over the […]Read More What I’m Doing
