Caravan Sonnet: Travel Adventures

Travel Adventures

"Traveling- it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller."
-Ibn Battuta

It has been a joy to explore this beautiful earth and to discover new places, new friendships, and to find grace in everywhere I visit. Travel to me is not escaping or "finding myself" but instead is about enormous joy and grace in new places. 

I began sharing about traveling and taking adventures on the blog when I was extremely sick and looking to find the joy and hope in everyday. I have been so blessed to travel and see parts of the world I only once dreamed of. I hope though that the places that are listed and shared here will inspire you to visit and help in a small way your own planning. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me! Happy Adventuring friends!

If you are a brand or business and would like to collaborate on an upcoming travel project, work to create a new travel collaboration, or ask for a review post you can find out more information the services I offer on the "work with me" tab at the top of the website. If you would prefer to contact me by email you can do so HERE. I look forward to working with you!

  1. Hmm!! This blog is really cool, I’m so lucky that I have reached here and got this awesome information.
    Last year i visited Germany and found Germany as one of the best place for walks, cruises and family adventures to trekking and cycling journeys, Book your Germany Visa now and get deep into this incredible country, discovering its natural beauty and cultural treasures.
