These have mostly been other travel bloggers, whom I’ve been able to connect with on a personal level, through a shared interest in travelling, and blogging about our experiences.

Culture Shot: Fika

In September 2010, I went to Sweden to visit a friend of mine who was on exchange at the university in the northern Swedish town of Umeå.  During my six days in this university town, I was introduced to the Swedish custom of fika.   Fika is, in the simplest term, a coffee break to […]

Keeping in Touch After the Breakup

November 24, 2010

Sex and the City‘s Carrie Bradshaw incessantly asked questions in her newspaper column about relationships.  As I sit here by myself, learning about things that the ex is now up to, I can’t help but wonder today “ever regret keeping in touch after the breakup?” My ex and I promised that just because we were […]
