  • Grrrl POWER!!! I discovered your website searching SAPA Vietnam and started reading your travel blogs/tips, i’m hooked! Keep traveling and making awesome videos. Safe travel.

  • Just discovered your blog and love your stuff! The video on being a polyglot is so fun (!) and so true. Loved, “Left” and “right” in Korean, then “straight” in English (but with a Korean accent, of course). Lol!^^ I’m an American in Korea right now and am getting ready to go to Jeju, which is how I discovered your scootering around Udo video. Udo wasn’t on my radar but you make it enticing! Thanks for your awesomeness!

  • Christine, Your website and Youtube posts inspired me to leave my job/life in the states behind and travel/work solo in Korea and surrounding countries. So far it’s been life affirming and confidence busting experience. Thanks for all the great information and for your honest and entertaining posts.

      Wow, I’m so happy everything has worked out for you @Amy and that my posts and videos were helpful in making your leap. Rain or shine, your leap was one of the greatest moves in self-faith and trust a person can make! And it will only give you back more. Be proud of yourself– what you’ve accomplished is HUGE!

  • Your website is great. I love the photos and info. Are you back teaching in korea these days?

  • I’ve been reading your blog for a long time now and I never left a post (I don’t really know why though)
    I simply love your writing style, very funny and clear !
    Your experiences are just ….. GRRR
    I’ll keep reading, so keep traveling =D

  • very cool, grrrrrl!

  • Ha I never thought about it like that but it’s a great idea! I’m actually planning a trip over across the trans-siberian express later this year from moscow to beijing. If all goes well then i’m going to turn it into a RTW journey over land and sea.
    I also like the jailbeak idea! 🙂

  • All I can say is “agree” and “agree.” Keep on keepin on!

  • I love the name of this site! Sort of remindes of the frosties advert (not sure if it was ever shown outside the UK) 🙂

    Very inspiring story! I want to go to India at somepoint. Can’t wait to hit the road again!

    • Thanks Runaway! Your site name was pretty eye-catching for me too and I like how the nickname I’m giving you sounds like i’m talking to a jailbreak sister! Love your story too- I love impulsive leaps like yours! Are you choosing your next destination by your top 5 travel films list?

  • Hey there, I just wanted to stop by and say I love the concept of “GRRR”!

    • Thanks Unstoppable. You sound like a GRRR! travel sister too weathering malaria ridden trips & Bolivian hostels! There’s an imperfect & uncourageous traveler in us all. It’s interesting to me, how qualities such as “confidence and fearlessness” are often inspired thru trial & error, accident/mistake, horribly (but funny) unraveling & stumblings, etc… Hope you continue to drop by and share some of your story. 😉
