Getting Social With NASA Changed My Life

I’ll never forget my first time. The ground shook beneath my feet. A roar rumbled in my gut. Goosebumps tingled over my skin.

Reasons to Date a Female Solo Travel Blogger

Reasons why I think you’d want to date a female solo travel blogger. A pair of dinner theatre tickets sit in an envelope above my wine rack, which is filled with dusty bottles of wine from near and far travels.
