I’ve had a few people ask me to write about my experience at TBEX – an annual travel blogging conference that happens in 3 regions around the world every year.
So, since you asked for it, I created this monster of a post to cover all the bases behind TBEX and my overall trip to Florida. Make some tea and settle into a comfy seat to get through this beast. If you’re just looking for tips as a travel blogger, skip down to the bottom. If you’re just a reader who wants to know more about Southern Florida, start reading from Miami. Otherwise, enjoy and read on!
Are you lost for what to get that avid traveler in your life this holiday season? It may seem like a funny concept – a gift guide for the wanderlust soul – since many of us value experiences over products. Rest assured; however, these gift ideas are either practical or way too fun to pass up, even for the most ascetic of us travelers.
There’s no doubt about it, Los Angeles gets a whole lot of slack. I’ve been around the world and I’ve heard people praise California, but they always have to mention their one exception was L.A. Yes, it’s smoggy, sometimes slightly shallow, and there’s a lot of traffic and bad drivers. If you can get past all that though, there are an large amount of activities and sights to see around the city.
I have to be honest with you guys, I’ve been putting this post off for months.
I try to start and every time I stare into the blank page, the cursor blinking back at me, taunting me to begin. The truth is, Christchurch is a hard place to talk about because it’s not a place that I enjoyed. It’s a difficult statement to make for me, because it’s a city that has been through so much and one that I wanted to support and love with open arms.
But, in the spirit of sincerity, I thought it was finally time to share with you all what I really thought of Christchurch.
I have to admit, I don’t have many pictures from this week. I’ve been having issues with my iPhone and the Verizon store has had to reset my phone twice now, which took away any hope that I’d have many pictures to share with you guys. I know, first world problems. So, I’ll share with you what I have, but this week has been a fairly low-key one in any case.
I looked at our map which probably hadn’t been used since 1980. I traced my finger up the California coast through all the spots I knew so well and stopped just north of San Francisco. Point Reyes. It sounded familiar, a place that my friends from the Bay had mentioned countless times before, I’m sure, but one I had never ventured to myself.
