5 Tips for Doing Disney World Alone
In the Spring of 2018, I embarked on a magical adventure of a lifetime! I became a Disney World Cast Member through the Disney College Program. The DCP is a "paid internship" that allows college students to work at Disney World while getting some of the most valuable customer service experience in the world. While on my program, I worked at Colombia Harbour House in Magic Kingdom!
All I Could Do Was WOOOO
I frequently find myself asking, how did I get here? This exact moment in time, about to do something really stupid? In this case it was definitely peer pressure. I was about to jump out of a plane in Namibia.
St. Andrews, Scotland
It is a sight straight out of a fairy tale. Towering church steeples line the few streets with cobbled stone pathways and tunneling alleys with architecture dating back to the 8th century. With a coastline that wraps the entire town and castles that line the beaches, you truly do find a sense of awe and wonder when you walk these tiny Scottish streets.
5 days in the Scottish Highlands
"What shall we do? "... come back tomorrow?" "Come back tomorrow, 100%". We laughed as we turned around right at the beginning of the Old Man of Storr walking trail, passing another couple who shared a knowing glance and a chuckle, as the two of us in our shorts, seemingly unprepared for the gailforce winds and rain, made our way back to our rented Land Rover to instead tackle the trail the next day.
My Dream Destination: The Republic of Tatarstan, Russia
For the last seven years of my life, I had one dream that I refused to let go of: to visit Russia. Although my brother and I plan to go when the pandemic has calmed down, I may not be able to see all of the republics during my first visit to Russia. Due to its level of hospitality, cultural enrichment, spirituality and uniqueness, there are several republics that I want to visit more than others, like Tatarstan.

3 Very Real and 3 Very Fictional Places for My Solo Trip
First things first, 2020 has really put a damper on my traveling plans. I have not gotten the opportunities in life to travel a great deal. In fact, I have never even been on a plane!

So, looking forward to 2021, I have 3 very real and 3 very fictional places I would love to go on a solo trip to.
Surroundings The wind whispering, the night sky filled with stars, and the sound of being alone. In Hagerstown, Maryland, these three things were hard to come by. They were especially difficult to enjoy as the sounds of my latest arguments with my stepmother echoed in my ear. Her constant criticism affected me greatly, and being outside subsided my insecurities she’d placed in my head. I would feel complete as I gazed out into the night, at least for a little while.
Solitude, Snow and The Glacial Call of the Wild
When I was 23, I finished university and got an admin job in local government. My friends, on the other hand, went travelling.

Back when times were easier, calmer, and less scary, after my A-Levels and my boyfriend's first year of University, we planned to go on holiday as a reward and break for all our hard work.
In the Passenger Seat of My Discovery
The concept of a hometown is a broad idea. Some people find solitude in the places they were raised, others in the places they found along the way. But for some of us, the hometown idea is not only a hard one to grasp, but a hurtful one to think about.
The Holy Dip
There’s a saying in Hindi, “Sab Tirath Bar Bar, Gangasagar Ek Bar.” Its english translation means “All pilgrimage can be done many times, but Gangasagar pilgrimage is an experience of a lifetime”.
Growing up Caribbean 🌴
Being Caribbean means a list of things to me but for starters , I'll say that it means growing up in a strict household with rules on top of rules that are set in stone from the time you're born. I swear . Lol. Okay maybe I am exaggerating a bit but not really.. It really felt like that anyway .

1/22/2021 for vocal.media Little Black Book “Hey Mom. How long are we going to have to stay here? It’s getting kind of boring and nobody wants to listen to my stories anymore.” Mikey sighed and looked his mom with a hopeful expression. “Well, we have to wait until we get the next deposit in the bank. We kind of ran short last month and had to play catch up this month. Can you be patient for another two weeks or so? I will figure out what we can do when we get the money and we also have two craft shows these next two weekends coming up.” “I guess I can. I will try to draw more pictures to sell. I think I have $28 dollars saved up.” Mikey was such a good kid. Sarah was twenty when she had him. His personality drew people in since he was tiny. He was still small for his age and his beautiful brown wavy hair always inspired complements.
The Feeding of the Street Cows
It was the winter of 2019, and I was finally embarking on a journey I had been wanting to take for several years. I was finally going to India - the land of wonder, and the birthplace of yoga. Even with modern aircraft, the journey to the other side of the world is a long one. Our first stop would be Japan for a one night layover, then off to Delhi, India the next day. Arriving at the Delhi airport was nothing spectacular. Lack of help for arriving passengers and a dismally slow line to check the printed visa-entry requirements (it wasn't electronic) was the norm. Still, I was finally in India with my wife. We made it.
Home is You and I
Google says home is the place where one lives permanently, especially as a member of a family or household, but that changed for me at the age of 16. I had to leave the people, places and the very things that I called home. Joy filled my heart at the prospect of being able to get a higher education, I packed my bags with things that would remind me of home in hopes to mask the pain my heart was also feeling.
