6:30am. My room vibrates within the deep silence of the early morning as my white noise app shuts off. I instantly awaken in anticipation. I know if I don’t respond quickly my various alarms will soon begin to sound; doing their job a little too effectively some days. Another Monday morning, and another week … Continue reading

Finding Zen During Crisis
Amidst the temptation to fear for the worst, the light of hope remains brighter still. My thoughts on our current predicament and what will come: Continue reading
Hocus Pocus Focus.
Do you ever have difficulty focusing on any one particular topic because your mind has too many complicated questions and issues competing for attention? This seems to happen to me every time my next step isn’t clear. Right now I’ve got just under 3 weeks in the same place (Den Haag, Nederland) at the end … Continue reading
It’s funny how quick we are to share our opinions even when they’re slightly (or highly) unjustified for another person’s situation. Sure maybe something’s turned out a certain way or created a particular perspective for us, personally, but one thing I’ve learned for sure over the last few years (and especially the last couple years … Continue reading
Regrets…I’ve Had a Few.
What’s the best time to write a blog post? The moment something comes up. “Regrets” is a VERY common theme for me, unfortunately. I’d love to say I know how to act my age and things are generally low-key and quite simple with me, but I’d be lying if I tried to pull that off. … Continue reading
I’m Not Dead Yet.
It’s true…against all odds and at the surprise of so many people…I’m not dead yet. Seems morbid maybe, but the truth of it is: I’ve had a LOT of near-death experiences, probably too many for one lifetime! I definitely live up to my name (Kat)…except instead of 9 lives, I seem to have dozens. Don’t … Continue reading
Changes. Changing. Shifting. Moving. Coming. Going. Continuously. Such is life. Easy come, easy go. Life is always working for us, if we choose to live by her rules…but how often do we flow like water with her? How simple is it to accept things as they are, even when they’re hard and uncomfortable…and especially when … Continue reading
Stranger Danger…Danger Zones!
The number one issue of safety isn’t always who IS watching and participating with us but much more so who wasn’t asked to join us or purposefully included. In all of our experiences when we thoughtlessly unite with people who are unknown, how many of these circumstances are very unknown/uncertain and even quite risky? Of … Continue reading
Stranger Danger. Easy Squeezy. (Part 1!)
Remember when your mother told you not to talk to or accept rides and candy from strangers? Maybe the most valuable lesson in life…but once you grew up and started making choices for yourself, a lot of us kind of neglected that teaching. After all, “I’m a grown up and can make my own … Continue reading
I’m a minimalist. To be a long-term traveler you really have to be. I don’t have the space to carry with me all of the modern conveniences I used to have living in the same place for extended periods of time…plus, I have to carry all of my belongings on my back, sometimes moving daily, … Continue reading
