Not sure where to start? Here’s a sampling of some the most popular topics on this blog (along with a few others I just love). On the practical side, I hope you’ll find some useful information on working holidays — or career breaks, or gap years. Whatever you call them, I’m a huge proponent, and this blog is largely about my own experience working and living away from the “real world.” I’ve also got the low-down on taking public transportation in countries with dirt roads and questionable safety standards, finding vegetarian food when you don’t speak the local language, learning what long-term travel is really like, and forcing yourself to skydive/hang glide/surf/rock climb/ride a motorcycle even if it sometimes brings you to tears. So have a browse and see what suits your own whims!
(P.S.: For lots more topics, check out the category cloud near the bottom of this page. You can also browse by destination here, read my all-time most popular posts here, or ignore the numbers and just trust me on my own favorite posts here).
