Welcome to Stowaway!
I’m currently on the road on part 1 of what I hope is a multi-part trip around the world (or RTW trip, in the travel blog parlance). You can use the menu buttons at the top of the page to find posts on specific places I’ve been, photo series on different themes, and how I planned this trip. It’s interactive–there’s a suggestion box so you can tell me your favorite travel destinations, and a fundraising page in case you want to help me keep going on the road.
On September 3, 2012 I flew to Hawaii, then to Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Singapore, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and now Japan. I fly to England at the end of May for my grandmother’s 80th birthday party. After that, I hope to see Germany, Poland, Romania, and Hungary before flying home for my friend’s wedding in mid-July.
If I still have any money left, it’s back on the road for possibly an Africa/India trip, or a Transsiberian Railway over to China trip, or an intensive language school in South America trip. There’s so much of the world to explore! (You can read my original itinerary and my travel philosophy at The Plan, In Sum.)
As well as being a travel blog, Stowaway includes posts on social justice and pop culture. Semi-regular features include: My Kind of Town Monday (photos of different places in Chicago), Aesthetically Speaking (series of interviews with artists), and Where in the World Wednesday (photos from my travels around the world). Other recurring features include A Country a Month (research on countries I plan to visit), Running the Numbers (budgeting a world trip), and The Headly Surprise (feminist surprises in mainstream movies). Please stop by the Suggestion Box and give me some ideas on where to go next. Thanks for reading and enjoy!
