Zero Waste is a scary word, but when I think about it I imagine a future where the ice caps are no longer melting, plastic bags aren’t being trashed into our oceans, and we make ourselves accountable for the pain we’ve caused to the planet. Call me a dreamer, but I believe this is possible. While we could talk about all the ways this is not just about the consumers but the companies who take advantage of our innocence in the hopes of bigger profits, a small difference can be made by making simple switches to daily life.
Living life with PTSD
“Pack your bags and move cities and countries. Nothing will enrich you than travel does.”― Nikita Dudani
I don’t want to lie to you, I’ve been procrastinating finishing out this post because of the sensitive material I want to talk about. This is more than just a list of items that has made my life as a traveler easier, it’s about why I started traveling in the first place, and most of all it’s about why I’ve taken two solo trips in the past 6 months, and why I’m leaving for another in a little over the week. This will make absolutely no sense to some people, but first let me explain. Solo travel teaches you about who you are as a person. Whether you’re young/old female/male, I’d recommend it. But as someone who has gone through their worst day, and can finally see the light after 4 years of just living I want to explain.
