Saving Money For Travel When You Are A Single Parent

I must admit, I am quite envious of some of the blogs I read. Most of them are single and free people and don’t have the obligation of raising children. Especially not on their own. I see blogs of families who go off on never ending adventures and yeah, I’m a little jealous at times. But, I have to remind myself that things aren’t always what they seem. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side. I know for a fact that it takes a TON of work to run a blog or business while on the road. Sure you can work whenever you want, but you still have to work!

My Favorite Quotes To Inspire Wanderlust

We all know that when Wanderlust bites, it bites hard. Hanging on and never really letting go. There has been some debate as to wether there is actually a gene that causes certain people to want to be vagabonds. I’m not sure if this is true, but one thing I do know, is that the urge to travel runs deep in my family.

A Weekend Adventure

Here I am, it’s Sunday and I’m busy around the house cooking and cleaning. Just doing my usual Sunday stuff. Yesterday, however, was a different story. The little Ginger and I had a little adventure. I knew we had to go to Hattiesburg to return G’s flute. (If you don’t know what that’s about, check out my post on Bullying.) I wasn’t really sure what we were going to do after that. We originally were going to go for a hike on the Long Leaf Trace. The little Ginger didn’t feel like hiking, so we compromised and hit the zoo.

The Least Visited Countries In The World Part 2: Asia Pacific, South East Asia, Oceania, and South Asia

Welcome to Part 2 of my Least Visited Countries In The World Series! This series is definitely putting me to work. I don’t usually write this sort of post, but I thought I’d change things up a bit. Writing this series has really opened my eyes to just how little I have actually seen of the world. It makes me a little sad really, to know that I will probably never visit every single country in the world. I do have a list of places to visit and experience, but it seems that list is ever growing.

Butterbeer and Hogwarts

There is no denying the magic of Harry Potter; “The Boy Who Lived”. J.K. Rowling created an entire world that has enraptured millions of people around the world. I am one of those millions. My brother introduced the books to me when I was in my late teens/early twenties, and I’ve not looked back since.
