Budapest | Hungary

Budapest | Hungary

by Rachelle Walker @ Walkers World Wide - WWW

Budapest was everything we had heard about & more, making it incredibly memorable. In a way it reminded me of NY, not the flashy pretty Manhattan part, but the gritty, old 19th-20th century parts. Dark & brooding buildings which, for some reason, always inspire more in me than the artful & colored ones of other European cities. Maybe that's why I immediately felt at home walking the streets.

She hopes & urges everyone to come back & see what the future has brought to Bratislava.

Luang Prabang | Laos

by Rachelle Walker @ Walkers World Wide - WWW

Beautiful, sleepy & quaint. A few words that come to mind when I think back on our visit to Luang Prabang, the royal capital of the former Kingdom of Laos. This beautiful little gem has managed to remain a bit under the travel radar, despite being named a UNESCO site in the 90’s & with the recent floods of investment, you can tell it is still a bit of a travelers’ Wild West. Beautiful landscape, amazing places to eat & a completely chill, backpackers haven. It certainly won’t fly under the radar much longer; the word is out about this amazing town & we think it’ll quickly become the next go-to spot.

Reality Bites

by noreply@blogger.com (Vi) @ Oh, The Places You'll Go!

There's a scene in the movie, Reality Bites (awesome '90s movie about post-college life), where Winona Ryder's character, after having been fired from her first job, cries to her roommate (played by Ethan Hawke), "I was really going to be somebody by the time I was 23." Ethan Hawke's character replies, "Honey, all you have to be by the time you are 23 is yourself." Winona Ryder then responds in the most defeated manner, "I don't know who that is anymore." And....SCENE. Now, queue me, the viewer. In my pajamas on a late Friday evening, after the most challenging workweek of my life, watching Winona Ryder's character express her existential angst about her post-college life, her disappointments, her confusion, and relating so much to her...that, I too, had to shed a small, defeated tear.

It's been exactly a year since I've graduated from college and if there is anything I have learned about myself since then it is that I know less about myself than I did in college. I'm nostalgic for my college life for many reasons. Friends, my apartment, the sense of independence, academic stimulation, Berkeley, walking...mainly though, I'm nostalgic for the person I was back then. I definitely had my insecurities in college, but never was I insecure about my life plans. I had my dreams, dreams that I thought I would never compromise. I had a vision of the life I wanted for myself, a life where I would never 'settle' or lose sight of my goals. I had direction.

And now, a year later? After months of disappointment, the reality of what it means to have my dreams and actualizing them have set in. I learned that in this economy, dreams take a backseat because really, we can dream all we want but dreams aren't going to fill your stomach or put a roof over our heads. So, my declaration to never move back home after college went by the wayside, and my intention of finding a political job died along with it. Sure, I had those small glimpses of hope, going to interviews here and there, but without strong connections in the field or money to finance a few months in another city to job hunt, I had to give in and accept that at least for the time being, this is my life.

And my life right now is not bad, at all. It is exactly where I need to be, to learn and gain the experience I need for my future career. I am grateful for this experience, but I am not going to lie that there is not a part of me that is a bit sad knowing I am nowhere close to my original plans. But the real clincher is that I don't even know if those plans are right for me anymore. I don't know what I want and because my sense of myself has for so long been enmeshed with my goals, I don't know who this person is anymore.

I know life is about growth. Plans change and you have to tough it out and re-plan, and re-plan, and re-plan. I know that. But, what if you really don't know what you want for yourself. You're aimless. For a person that has led a rather structured life, filled with planned goals and time measures on when they had to be achieved, this is all new territory for me. People keep telling me, "This is just a stepping stone," but what if you no longer know which stone to step to next?

Backpacking in Cambodia: Siem Reap or Sihanoukville?

by backpackerlee @ backpackerlee

I have previously asked “why is Cambodia so popular for backpackers?” and it became apparent that there were two main areas of the country that were more visited than others: central Siem Reap and the coastal town of Sihanoukville. If you had to spend a week in just one of these places, which would it […]

Chiang Mai | Thailand

Chiang Mai | Thailand

by Rachelle Walker @ Walkers World Wide - WWW

First off, Chiang Mai was far different than we thought it would be. It had been described as a backpacker’s haven, which, typically, meant quiet, laid back, with more locals than tourists. Lonely Planet describes it as a “…sprawling modern city…grown up around ancient Chiang Mai…”. That’s an understatement. Luckily, there is plenty to do, or not do, to keep you entertained & even make you feel like you are the only ones around.

A Little Story… How One Maasai Tribe Is Changing the Face of Responsible Tourism

Road Trip | Romania

by Rachelle Walker @ Walkers World Wide - WWW

This is how I wound up in the passenger seat of the tiniest little Renault Clio grasping the “oh s***” handle, rolling back & forth around curves & being launched over bumps. Romania was quite literally a wild ride…we had no idea the countryside would be like this. It is one of the most gorgeous countries we’ve ever seen, & one of the most scenic drives we’ve ever had. Landscapes are almost indescribable, rolling hills of lush green, deep valleys & soaring peaks. Every time we turned an s-curve or crested another peak, it was some breathtaking view.

Underneath the emerging, bustling cities & obvious strides of growth in the last decades, you can still feel a part of the country that hasn't healed, feels restless & not yet at peace.

Terrorist attacks still remain an unpredictable factor in the region. But while plenty of our favourite travel destinations will and have fallen prey to
