A Mini Guide to Canggu, Bali

Hiking the Camphuan Ridge Walk

I recently returned from a trip to Canggu (pronounced Changgu). I didn't think it was possible to fall in love with a place before even stepping foot on its soil but I did. Once in Canggu, it didn't take me long to realize this love was justifiable. It is a laid-back beach town, far enough removed from bustling, and tourist trap ridden Seminyak, yet lively in its own hipster way. Surfing, yoga, beach bars, restaurants, and cafes makes up this charming town. Here's my mini guide to Canggu to help you along on your visit. Need to Know Language:...

8 Unforgettable Things to do in San Pedro Belize

8 Unforgettable Things to do in San Pedro Belize worldofawanderer.com

This time last year I was enjoying a post birthday trip to Belize. Why post birthday? Well, one of my friends was planning a trip to Belize and Guatemala for a family member’s graduation, and my friends and I decided to invite ourselves along, because why not? It happened to be around the time of my birthday and another friend’s birthday so it all worked out as just one big celebration. I didn’t have any expectations for Belize because, quite honestly, I didn’t know much about this small Central American country beyond tropical weather and the wondrous...

36 Hours in Ho Chi Minh City

36 Hours in Ho Chi Minh City

Ho Chi Minh City (HCM), also known as Saigon, is a whirlwind of a city, and a vibrant mix of old and new. You can easily be engulfed by the city’s modern skyscrapers, and walk a few blocks over and be taken aback by its awe-inspiring, well-preserved, colonial buildings. Despite it’s gripping past of being at the heart of the Vietnam War (known as the American War in Vietnam), it is evident just how resilient this city is and its will to overcome even the worst adversities. Forty years, post war, and HCM has become...

9 Must-Try Atlanta Restaurants

No matter how many exotic countries I visit; delectable, international, dishes I devour; or incredible people I meet along the way, there is no place like home. For me, home is none other than the sweet Peach State of Georgia. The place where everybody is referred to as honey, sugar, sweetheart, and baby; where southern charmers will leave you feeling like you’ve just made a new BFF in the span of a 20 second elevator ride; and where iced tea is unmitigated blasphemy. It’s sweet diabetic coma inducing tea, or nothing at all (this is not up...

Hoi An: Part 2

As a novice blogger, I’ve quickly learned that writing from the road isn’t as easy as it seems, ESPECIALLY when you have a month jam-packed with non-stop travel and adventures. I’ve also learned that if ever Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs should be revamped, modified, made anew, it should be NOW! I mean, right now…at this very moment, and the first level of need should be Wi-fi this is not up for debate. For about a week and a half it was a pain in the arse luxury to be able to even check my email, let alone upload large-file...

Off The Beaten Path: Hoi An

Street photography is probably my favorite style of photography. I love the candidness and authenticity of it. It allows me to become a visual storyteller. However, I will be the first to admit I am the biggest coward when it comes to making these types of photos. I feel like it's such an awkward intrusion, for both myself and the subject. So I'm usually THAT person who stands off in the distance snapping photos, then scurrying off before the subject has a chance to object lol. But, I'm challenging myself more and more to step...
