Travel Health

My insights on what to pack, eat, and do, to stay healthy while traveling the world.

How I Got My Pre-Travel Body Back

  Given the sensitive nature of this post, I’d like to preface my story with a few words...   All bodies are beautiful. All bodies are healthy. All bodies are worthy of love. All bodies are perfect. I honor every part of my journey and I honor every part of yours, as...

The Ultimate Post-Travel Detox

  You can easily tell how much a woman has traveled based on how readily she talks about poop.   Yep, poop is one of the main conversations that goes on between travelers. Men and women alike.     While most people in the modern world pay little attention to their...

The Healthy Guide to Chiang Mai

  Sleepy late mornings when guesthouses open their doors     ladies sweep the streets like flower carpeted floors.     Gilded roof temples glisten in the sun     orange robed monks catch the eyes of everyone.     Blocks alternate businesses but it’s pretty much same...

My All Natural (and Effective) Travel Beauty Kit

  The abundance of 7-11 convenience stores was basically my favorite thing about Bangkok. After hours of sweating in over a hundred degree heat in the crazy city streets, I’d dip into the cool air conditioned sterile encasement of that store. I’d forget for a moment...

My (NEW) Travel Wellness Kit

  When I’m traveling, I’m easy to spot.   I’m that girl stirring green powder into her fruit smoothie on the street in Thailand. The one sprinkling chia seeds on her breakfast at the hostel. The one brewing her own science experiments in her backpack to protect her...

Why I Don’t Travel With Health Insurance

  If you’re like most Americans, the thought of not having health insurance probably seems absurd. Perhaps even terrifying.   It may seem so terrifying that the fear keeps you in a cushy day job that doesn’t really fulfill you. It has full medical and dental after...

How to Eat in Barcelona

  Nothing about the way that people eat in Barcelona feels natural to me. Nothing.     In Barcelona locals wake late and nibble on pastries and coffee at streetside cafes. I typically wake early and have a superfood green smoothie… after yoga of course.     In...

Returning to the Source in South Tyrol

  For centuries royalty have been coming to South Tyrol for wellness. Long before the five star hotels and spas, the saunas and the thermal baths, they came for the clean air, the mild temperature, and three hundred days per year of sunshine.     The Austrian empress...

How to Travel the World and Never Get Food Poisoning

  For years I’ve led you to believe that I travel alone.   That I’m this intrepid female traveler who straps on her backpack and sets off into the unknown. Well, today I’m ready to come clean. I’m ready to admit that I actually have a co-dependant relationship with...

How I Cured Myself of Mosquito Bites Forever

  I have always been the girl who gets the most mosquito bites.   I remember as a kid spending the summer in New Jersey and my Mother had putting me in a cornmeal bath because I itched so badly after playing outside on a muggy night. Another time as a teenager I went...

Can We Keep it Au Naturale?

  Right now I am crying. Not just crying, sobbing. Uncontrollably sobbing like a child.   A gecko the size of a kitten just crawled up the wall across from me and I desperately willed it to come cuddle me. It never did.   Now I’m laughing while crying. I have a fever...

My Travel Wellness Kit

  Most days I’m the weirdest traveler in the guesthouse.   “What’s that?” people hesitantly ask and point to my glass jar of bacteria.   “Umm what are you drinking?” they probe with concern as I mix green powders into my fruit smoothie.   Last night my dorm mate was...

How to Eat in Vietnam

  The more I travel the more complicated eating becomes.   A self proclaimed foodie I remember when nothing brought me more bliss than biting into a piece of aged cheese or devouring a bowl of handmade pasta. I would proudly declare that french fries with truffle salt...

Latin American Street Food

  I'm sorry. I've been a bad friend.     While I was busy eating my way around Latin America I forgot your invitation.   Can you nibble on these photographs instead?     This is the streetside cuisine I risked illness to consume. You know how much I love to eat.  ...

How to Stay Healthy When Traveling

  I’m writing this from my beachfront hut, on a remote island, where I lay stricken with the flu. My feet are covered in sand, which has made its way into my bed. I lost my only pair of shoes three days ago.   An intense blend of reggae and trance pounds outside my...

10 Fulfilling Ways to Take Care of Yourself When Traveling

            When you return home from traveling from your day are you rejuvenated or depleted?   Do you feel healthy? Or in need of detoxification?   Many of us know the toll that travel and life can take on our body on our mind on our spirit.   Often we are so...

How I Eat When Traveling

  It is no secret to those who know me, even slightly, that I love to eat. I can talk endlessly about each crunch, lick, and chew. Often to the annoyance of others.     Lunch swirls in my head when breakfast has only touched my tongue. No meal, snack, or taste escapes...
