World Traveler Jun. 28th, 2011 @ 11:35 pm

Wow...so I randomly stumbled upon this community and it seems pretty amazing. I wish I had found it a year ago but I guess better late then never. So as I was reading through all the posts I honestly feel like I could reply to most of them.  I just finished a world tour and I am just starting to document everywhere I have been, I still have a lot to write but I've finished the first few countries!

I did New York, India, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, England, Germany, Holland, Belgium, France, Spain and...I think thats it, might have missed a few. But I have also been to Peru and most of the caribbean and I'm from Toronto. I'm more then happy to answer any questions or to help people out. Living out of a backpack for a year has definitely taught me to budget and still I managed to really enjoy my travels. If you have any questions or want any advice on anything, read my journal or give me a shout!

Hope you enjoy your travels as much as I did :)

I'm looking to go to Peru at the end of August. I am in my mid 20s, female, and would be traveling solo. I've traveled throughout Western Europe before, many portions by myself, but have gotten mixed reviews about how safe this would be in Peru.

Thoughts from ladies who have also done it?


Thanks in advance!

Is this a good tent? May. 15th, 2011 @ 03:48 pm
