I hope everyone is gearing for the weekend ahead and has many plans to get out and do something adventurous! During the weekends I like to take the time to try something new, whether it be exploring a new place, reading a new book, transforming my tastebuds or trying a new workout. Diversity keeps the mind keen and there are millions of opportunities in this big world ready for you to embrace.
Starting this week I will have a weekly round-up of articles posted on Fridays that I find inspiring or helpful. They will range anywhere from health and fitness to travel and fashion with twists including contests and volunteer opportunities! I believe in sharing stories and ideas for other people to enjoy and learn from – so now every Friday you can learn something new on the Every Girl, Everywhere!
To inspire, to help or just to hold – Here are some articles that I’ve found throughout the week!
- 5 Reasons to Visit Cartagena + Win a Trip For Two – Cartagena has been described as a fairy-tale city of romance; tropical sea breezes whistle through the cracks of massive fortifications as travelers and street musicians alike stroll through a maze of cobblestone alleys. Spanish built city walls protect a World Heritage listed old town, where a parade of horse drawn carriages, spectacular cathedrals, and lush greenery cascading from balconies over leafy plazas reveals a faded colonial grandeur.
- Voluntraveling: Permaculture Farming in Thailand – Volunteering and traveling are possibly the two most rewarding activities a person can do. They’re both educational, fulfilling and destructive to prejudices, ego, and the separation that disconnects humans from each other and the planet. Most travelers possess a powerful curiosity about the world, wishing to discover the world and learn something about themselves in the process.
- Generation Rent: Why Many Millennials are Choosing a Nomadic Lifestyle – Over the pond, they’re calling us “generation rent”. That nickname hasn’t stuck in the states, but it’s clear that Millennials both here and abroad are not purchasing houses in the same fashion our parents once did. I remember my mom telling me shortly after college that I should buy a house as soon as I could afford to do so.
- 8 Things My Family Learned When We Gave Up Processed Foods – A few short years ago, our pantry was just like so many other suburban kitchens — we thought we were making healthy choices and that the convenience foods and special treats in the pantry were no big deal. Then, after reading Michael Pollan’s book, In Defense of Food, I had the wakeup call of my life when I realized many of the foods we were eating were actually highly processed.
- How to Eat, Drink, and Stay Healthy While Traveling – There is no doubt that one of the most difficult aspects of traveling regularly is that it can really take a toll on your body and mind, and staying fit and healthy while being on the road isn’t always easy. However, it isn’t as difficult to fit into your travel itinerary as you might think.
