It’s simple. Us earth wanderers love the planet and all it’s stunning sights. So why ever would we not want to protect it? As travelers we have a responsibility to look after the earth as much as we can, and what better way than to swap out all our single use plastics. In just underContinue reading “How easy is it to be plastic-free whilst travelling?”

April was no better

Science is about spotting trends emerging in data and extrapolating to predict future patterns, right? Well, after February’s high, March and April have kickstarted an exponential downwards curve and I’m not sure I want to know where May is going to take us. A disclaimer: you know that scene in Brooklyn 99 where Rosa saysContinue reading “April was no better”

Blogging interview #8: Poky Little Wanderer

Kelly is, in her own words, “a sassy bookworm from Buffalo who’s just trying to see every corner of this world”.

Journals from Ecuador and thoughts from an inside-out month

I’m writing this at 10pm on a Thursday night having just eaten 3 packets of crisps with a glass of wine. Because time doesn’t exist anymore, and clearly, neither do social norms. This month started with intense anxiety about travelling that seemed all-consuming at the time – to the point of literally crying at workContinue reading “Journals from Ecuador and thoughts from an inside-out month”

The trip of a lifetime: San Cristóbal Island won my heart

A quick note: I wrote this post day by day, so I had no idea that my week would change so drastically. I’m also writing on mobile, so excuse the formatting and I’ll edit it all when I get home.

A bit of introspection

As we were pulling weeds as part of our volunteer work this morning, Abe and I agreed that after only 24 hours on San Cristobal island, we love the place.
