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…

What You Didn’t See On Instagram

Of course on my social media accounts, you’ll only find beautiful photos of the seemingly fun times and beautiful landscapes while I’m traveling. However, I have to admit there’s always a lot more going on behind the scenes. Things that I don’t necessarily know how to convey to people who repeatedly tell me how envious they are of my travels. So here’s my attempt to relay some of what was really going on behind some of my Instagram posts:   I took this photo in Vietnam, approximately 4 minutes before I tripped and twisted my ankle, while tumbling down the street like a rubber ball.…

Travel Moments I’d Rather Forget: A Thai Taxi

As everyone should already know, traveling isn’t always laying under palm trees sipping cocktails and having amazing life affirming moments worthy of writing whimsical blog posts about. In fact, a majority of the time it’s the exact opposite. I have a pretty significant amount of travel memories that I’d rather forget. Travel Moments I’d Rather Forget will be a new series here on SeegsTravels. I haven’t figured out the frequency yet, but I’m going to share some of my own anecdotal stories that are of this very nature. Maybe they’ll make you laugh. Maybe they’ll shed some insight for your own travels. Either way, I…

Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award

I am so honored to have been nominated for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award by someone I respect so much, Nicolette Orlemans. I met Nicolette through Mackenzie of Mac on the Fly (also nominated), and have immensely enjoyed participating in her #CultureTrav chats on Twitter ever since. The #CultureTrav chat is co-hosted by Jessica Lipowski every Thursday at 2:30 PM EST. It’s a wonderful way to connect with travelers around the world, compare war stories about your travels, and get a new perspective on the unique ways people are making travel possible in their lives. I’m proud to be a part of this…
