One thought on “Media Coverage

  1. Love your blog. As a vegetarian traveler with chronic asthma and allergies travel often has some challenges but they are all 100% worthwhile. I grew up being afraid of a lot of things but getting out of my comfort zone and ‘leaping’ often helps to keep those in check. Love to connect through stories of adventure. Safe and happy travels. (
