Seegs Quarterly Oct – Dec 2016

The fourth and final Seegs Quarterly of 2016 is a little late this time, but here’s what I was up to recently: Hong Kong I found my footing in Hong Kong during these months. I successfully got a semester of graduate school under my belt, with two more to go! One of the best parts of pursuing this path in Hong Kong was meeting so many like-minded people. I’ve had more interesting conversations in the few short months I’ve been in Hong Kong than I’ve probably had in the past 5 years. Hong Kong has one of the best expat communities…

My 6 Best Travel Moments of 2016

I started last year with My 5 Best Travel Moments of 2015, so why not kick it up a notch this year to My 6 Best Travel Moments of 2016?! This year was more about living abroad, and adjusting to an expat lifestyle, instead of traveling, and it has undoubtedly been one of the more important years of my life. While last year was more about solo travel and looking inwards, many of my favorite moments from this year were spent with others: both strangers and friends, and of course strangers who became friends. This year was all about connections,…

Being Patriotic via Instagram

I think it’s possible to be anti-Trump (and the incoming administration) without being anti-American. With homesickness starting to kick in and simultaneously having to hear so much anti-American sentiment lately abroad (including from myself), I think a reminder of how amazingly beautiful, colorful and diverse my country is would be perfect right about now.

It’s time for the second Seegs Quarterly! I’m looking back on these past few months with lots of gratitude. Gratitude for the experiences I’ve had, for the patience to know that hard times don’t last and will eventually turn to good, for the interesting people I’ve met around the world, and for my unique lifestyle that wouldn’t have been possible years ago. I spent the first part of the quarter wrapping up things in Taiwan. I was pretty whiney towards the end of my time in Taipei and couldn’t wait to leave, but that was unfair of me. Because I knew…

My 5 Best Travel Moments of 2015

This year was personally one of my greatest years on record for traveling. Even though things were a bit rocky at times this year, it always makes me feel so grateful to look back and be thankful for the journey. I feel so incredibly lucky to have had the experiences I’ve had, as well as the resources to make it all possible (even if it took some sacrifices along the way). Getting right to the point, here are my top 5 travel highlights of 2015:   1) Road tripping the Pacific Coast Highway This is one of the most beautiful drives on Earth. I…
