When I was approached last May by Maria ( A Seat For One) I was thrilled! Thrilled to be apart of a collective story of women solo travelers. "Some of the best nights of my life were spent alone, in a new city. I met a lot of wonderful people on my travels. Surprising enough, every woman, who I met that was traveling on their own as well...I was always met with enthusiastic women who would ask me how my trip was going and just want to know more about me and my travel plans. Each woman I met, I would always wonder. “What was their story?” What made them decide to just leave their life behind at home, for however long their trip was. 2 weeks, 2 months, a year even, and experience traveling solo."
From there A Seat for One blossomed.
Early on I’ve been taught to Love thy neighbor as thyself. Being taught to be open and loving towards others is something truly necessary. It's sometimes it’s easier said than done. I understand that people all over the world continue to be hated and persecuted because of their religion, language, culture, etc. I am sure we all at some point have felt hurt by others because of their ignorance or intolerance towards us. Or we have been on the opposite end and our actions have hurt someone else. Despite all of this however, it has not deterred me to try to find the good in everything. I know that I was born with this innate nature for traveling and more importantly very curious and intrigued with the world around me.
You don't have to travel all the way around the world to make a difference in your community and save a life! I had the opportunity to attend Brides Against Breast Cancer this weekend hosted by mywedding.com with fellow travel and fashion blogger, Jetsetheart.com.
