You Can Travel Alone, No Matter Where You Are In Life

Take a chance. If you travel for work or must take a trip for other reasons, go ahead and go alone. Yes, it can be a hassle to arrange childcare, pre-make dinners and all the rest of the stuff your family thinks just magically happens. Still, it's worth it. Traveling alone lets you remember who you were before you were the key cog in a family. You don't have to go to Australia to achieve this. They have wine in Pittsburgh, Toronto and Phoenix.

The mine's tunnels stretch for hundreds of kilometres under the island and adjacent bay. The last miner walked out in the mid 1960s leaving most of their equipment and tools behind. When the mine was shut down, the pumps were turned off and it flooded. Eventually the water levels rose, covering more than a hundred years of mining history.

In our eyes, and in our kids' eyes, uncles truly rock.

How to Snap out of Being Risk Averse

Acquired Risk Aversion Syndrome seems to be everywhere these days. That's what I'm calling the tendency of people to get less adventuresome as they go through life. I don't mean to create panic but ARAS is alarmingly prevalent and I keep running into more people who are suffering from it.

Maxing Out Our Happiness

nd I'd give myself a solid 8/10 at life. It's just that remaining 2/10 that's sometimes missing. This other 20 per cent is, in my opinion, the zest of life. It's those moments you get caught up in and find yourself wondering if this is really your life -- is it actually possible to be this excruciatingly happy?

How I Got My Money Back From the Boogeyman

I was at a workshop the other day about personal finances. Instead of the usual blah blah blah about investment opportunities and admonishments to save more for retirement, this one took a very different tack. The moderator wanted us to consider our emotional relationship with money. The first question she asked was who's in control?

Are Your Friends Cheerleaders or Fearleaders?

The enthusiasm requirement is a biggie, because excitement is infectious. Cheerleaders can get worn out just like the adventurer they're supporting. When you've been whining for two weeks straight or copping out on doing what you've got to do to make it happen, they need to be so keen on your success that they'll keep pushing you right on through it.

You really, really want to quit your job, go live in Paris, take up belly dancing, dye your hair pink, or jump out of an airplane (with a parachute). But you can't because...Whatever you've been dreaming of but not actually doing, chances are you've got some really solid reasons why. Which would be fine if they were actually true.

What I Learned Travelling in My 20s

Heather Magee | Posted 05.28.2014 | Canada Travel
Heather Magee

My 20s were all about three things: hustling, partying and traveling. Hustling to move forward in my career, partying with my ever-growing network of friends, and traveling as much as my bank account would stretch. My values and motives haven't shifted too much in my 30s, but my approach to travel most certainly has.

My travel companion was my two year old Atticus (a man of few words) who surprised me by declaring enthusiastically: "Mexicooooo" as he looked out the window in wonder. No, we weren't headed to some coastal gated community or beachside all-inclusive. We had touched down in central Mexico.

Crossing the Darien gap was a pleasure. Sure getting to this point was a touch stressful at times, but the actual voyage was a delight. Getting the bikes OFF the boat, however, was another story.

Don't Judge Haiti By Its Media Coverage

I had no idea how strongly my friend and many other Haitians feel about this uneven representation of their island until I posted a picture of a pile of garbage in Port-au-Prince and her brother told me off. Haiti is treated like that girl who can't shake the bad reputation she got in high school.

Ultimateride: A Tale of Trying to Leave Panama with two Motorbikes, by Boat

Philip Davidson | Posted 01.23.2014 | Canada Alberta
Philip Davidson

Crossing the Darien Gap isn't easy. There's no road, (I double checked) so you can't ride, thus the options are to fly or to sail. Flying costs about 700$ per bike, plus whatever it costs for you. There are many sailboats that take bikes, but they cost over 1000$. Each. To travel about 200 nautical miles.

Ultimate freedom, waking up late, working in your pj's and taking a spontaneous day off. It sounds like the dream job, doesn't it? Well, if running your own business is that glorious, why doesn't everyone do it? The fact is, being an entrepreneur is probably the hardest thing you will ever do. It will consume your thoughts, your relationships, your sleep and your life. You may never have a "day off" again. Still interested?
