Beauty Beyond Beauty

Living is like tearing through a museum.

Thoughts on Solo Travel

Fun Fact: I have never traveled for leisure alone before. It's not because I'm afraid but I had a solid group of friends I travel with that going to new places with them seem natural. I agree to whoever said this: "In this world, there are things you can only do alone, and things you can only … Continue reading Thoughts on Solo Travel
