"You have a snake?" my friend asked as she gasped and gave me a look of pure horror. Unfortunately, this was not the first time I had gotten this reaction from someone when they find out what I keep in my room as a pet. In fact, before I get my snake my dad told me that I shouldn't post anything about my snake on social media because "people wouldn't understand and they would think I'm weird." Harsh, right? I certainly thought so.
Ride-share services have become quite the norm. People would much rather call an Uber or Lyft driver than an old fashioned taxi. However, Uber specifically does not do a background check on their employees or meet them for an interview prior to hiring them (currently). The requirements Uber drivers need to meet are not steep, and most people with a car that was made in the last decade can apply and expect to be hired. But how safe really are these ride-share services? You decide.
So you have made the wonderful (but sometimes scary) decision to travel the world. Deciding to travel for the first time can be a huge step, and one that is not for the faint of heart.

In 1894, an Italian serial killer was born. Leonarda Cianciulli never had a perfect life, and little is known about her childhood, but it is documented that she attempted suicide twice in her adolescence and then married a man her parents strongly disapproved of. In fact, Leonarda believed that her marriage to an office cleric was cursed because of her parent's strong content for their union. Leonarda was married in the 1930s and ran a small shop out of Corregio, Italy. What did the shop sell you might ask? The answer is soap.

Traveling doesn’t have to be crazy expensive and there are many ways that people have found to travel the world with little money. I could tell you hundreds of ways to save money on traveling, but instead, I will show you how I recently traveled on a budget and was able to travel for less than $500. This story begins when I asked a friend of mine to travel with me a few months ago. We wanted to go somewhere cool, but cheap since we were both a bit tight on money. After all of our planning and budgeting, we were able to travel to Portland, Oregon from Phoenix, Arizona for less than $500 a person. Let me break down exactly how we were able to do this.
