Share your passion for travel

Our Big, Beautiful, Bodacious Blog

Here you will find stories from our founder, April Hope, as well as from couples who have traveled together, advice from those in long distance relationships, and crazy adventures from solo travelers who have boldly explored new places alone but ended up finding romance and passion, and new friends.

 

We've also included "catfish" stories by people who have traveled to meet an online lover, only to find out that there was something "fishy" about their story, and they were shocked to find out that the person they fell for online was not at all the person they actually met in person. Learn from their stories to save yourself alot of time, trouble and cash!

 

If you dream of writing about your experiences while traveling, you can read about what it's like to be a digital nomad, the pros and cons of being a travel blogger, and find resources and information on how you can live your dream of blogging around the world. We'll share blogger guides, conferences, links, meetups and other events that can help you start your new career as a blogger!

 

Here are our latest and best posts, and destination guides with lots of tips and tricks you won't find in other "budget" guidebooks.

 

We hope our stories will inspire you to GO! And of course, share your story with us!

My Attempt to Live in a Tiny Home

I loved Tiny House Nation. I would binge watch episodes and dream of living in my own tiny house. I saw Youtube videos of people who downsized and were so happy with their little traveling homes.
