Travel Tales: Buenos Aires

Travel Tales: Buenos Aires

Before Buenos Aires, I was in Chile. Click here for my Chilean adventure recap!

I didn’t plan to go to Buenos Aires.

No, I was meant to go to Mendoza, a town that was a 6-7 hour bus ride away from Santiago. The bus was supposed to take us up the Andes and through the border crossing to Argentina. Mendoza was the first big city over the border and famous for its wine. L and I were looking forward…

Travel Tales: Chile

Back in November (or was it December?) my childhood friend L contacted me out of the blue. She was one of my best friends in high school, back when I lived in Australia. Since I moved back to the States, we kept in touch sporadically over Facebook.

(Both my friends and L’s…

Link Love, Vol. 62

Link Love, Vol. 62

It seems like I’ve only just gotten back from Chile and Argentina and already, I’m on the move again. Tonight, I depart for a week-long trip for work. While I’m not going far (only a state away), it’s still a week away from home and on the road.

While my time in DC between trips has been brief, I have enjoyed being back. I could do without the swelteringly hot temperatures, but I can’t have…

Blogging Is My Hobby. It Isn’t My Job.

Blogging Is My Hobby. It Isn’t My Job.

If you couldn’t tell from my previous post, I’ve been thinking a lot about blogging. Specifically, how and why I blog.

The more eagle-eyed among you will also know that I’m blogging from a new domain name: musicalpoem.me.

I’ve been blogging for so long that I can’t imagine NOT blogging. I love this little space on the internet I’ve created for myself, one where I can write to my heart’s content…

A Day in the Life: July 2014

A Day in the Life: July 2014

On a designated day each month, I post a linkup where bloggers can showcase what “a day in the life” that month is like with photos, text or a combination of the two. For more information about this project, click here.

I’ve been thinking a lot about this linkup lately, especially since the dates for June and July bookended my trip to Chile. This was unintentional, of course; the original date…

8 Things I’ve Learned Since Graduating High School

8 Things I’ve Learned Since Graduating High School by @anotherpinkblog

Today, Kelly is gracing Break the Sky with this humorous post on the things she’s learned since graduating high school. I love reading the lists Kelly writes on her blog, so I’m flattered that she’s chosen to share this one with us.

Earlier last month while graduation ceremonies were being held, I reflected on the things I’ve accomplished in the past 8 years (how has it been that long?!) At the…

When Travel Stirs the Soul

When Travel Stirs the Soul by @femmefrugality

The lovely Femme Frugality is taking over the blog today with this great guest post about how travel experiences can move us in different ways, even stirring the soul. Take it away, girl!

One of the greatest things about travel can be the way it affects us. Travel can transform our perspectives, our opinions, and sometimes even our souls.

And then sometimes it doesn’t. At least not in the way we…
