Use the Power of Questions to Prompt Writing Topics
Traveling, visiting landmarks and eating cuisine of new regions ignites my senses. However, getting to the destination tests my patience. During the hours of driving, my interest wanes requiring me to get creative to stay awake. First up is the alphabet game. Once each letter has been spotted on road signs, I begin to find a license plate from every state in the union. Then I torment my husband by exclaiming, “I spy!” and describing some obscure item. He plays along until we both lose interest and move onto other stimulating games like listing animals whose names start with every letter of the alphabet.

Most travel bloggers give the worst advice: spending a week in the birthplace of humanity.
I just read an article on Colombia and traveling here that was the worst advice I have ever read, and it was by a very, very, very popular OG travel blogger.
I challenged myself upon arriving to Washington State that every week I was going to do something. Whether that being big or small, I just did not want to stay home.

The striped jackal is the smallest of the three species and is widespread throughout the world, including Southeast Asia, Africa, and Southeast Europe. The golden jackal is the largest of the three species. They can survive in forested places but prefer open ecosystems such as savannas, deserts, and grasslands.

While the Side-striped Jackal is common in central and southern Africa, the Black-backed Jackal is found in Southern and East Africa.

They forage and eat fruits and insects in addition to hunting small mammals such as furry animals and birds. It is said that golden jackals have this talent. Jackals are noted for their distinctive howling behavior, which helps them communicate with each other within established territories, and their ability to consume almost anything, including domestic pets. They are animals that live in packs of up to 10 people, with male and female dogs predominating. They work together to hunt, defend their territory, and care for their young jackals. They live in monogamous relationships, meaning they mate for life with the same person. Jackals' lifespans vary depending on the species and the environment they live in. They usually have a lifespan of 10 to 10 years. After 12 years of living in the wild, they are still vulnerable to various problems, such as habitat loss and human abuse. The most famous and beloved of the three species is the golden jackal, which is also the most targeted for persecution. Humans frequently hunt and poison them because they are believed to pose a danger to farming and hunting animals. In addition to being hunted for their fur, black-backed jackals are also a nuisance. Although the side-striped jackal is not as endangered as the other two species, it is still at risk of habitat loss. Various conservation efforts are being made to protect jackals in their natural environment. Many groups are trying to spread the importance of jackals to their ecosystems and activities.
