My Travel and Blogaversary: Year Two thumbnail

Yesterday marked a very special anniversary for me: Two years of remote self-employment, two years blogging away here at Meihoukai in Wanderland, and two years of living nomadically. It’s been a trip, in every sense of the word. From attempting drysuit diving in the frigid waters of Iceland to becoming a Divemaster in the warm seas…

Happy Sunday, everyone! I hope wherever you’re reading this post is as beautiful as where I’m writing it from — my sunny backyard in Albany, New York!

Greetings from Toronto! I’m posting from TBEX, the travel blogging conference that I gushed about last year in Colorado. This conference has well and truly been a whirlwind, and I’m glad I’ve set aside the next week to decompress at a desk and try to put into action all the inspiration and ideas I’ve felt bubbling…

My European Bucket List Part II thumbnail

Back in January, I posted a mini European Bucket List when I realized that I did have some must-visit destinations in the continent that usually sits at the bottom of my wanderlust list. I loved the discussion that ensued in the comments and all the ideas you guys gave me — clearly, I’m in the minority…
