So what is it exactly? It’s the first interactive travel writing/reading site. You, my loyal readers, aka my Virtual Travel Buddies, vote on where in the world to send me without a plan. In most cases, I’ll depart for the destination in two weeks or less. I’ll report to you on the adventure as well as provide you with links to lodging, activities, and other vendors that I use. I’ll also include the prices of different aspects of the trip so that, however you choose to travel, you can get an idea of what your budget might be.
There are a couple of other unusual aspects to this site. First, is the philanthropic part. On each trip, I commit to volunteering for a day, or part of a day, with an organization working in the area in which I’m traveling. I’ll share their story with you, who they help, and how you can get involved at Rebel With A Cause.
The other part that’s slightly different than some other travel websites is that I actually travel. There are no Top Ten Lists here; no How to’s. This is storytelling at its best. Sometimes funny, sometimes touching, and usually informative. Oh, and since I sold my house, my car, my furniture, and most of my clothes to finance this project and write a memoir from it, I’m geographically fluid, traveling to the places you choose. If you’re a literary agent, publishing company, or you want to back this project, well, I’m just a girl who can’t say no (it sometimes gets me into trouble). If you’re an airline or sugar-daddy, drop me a line.
If you want to read about previous trips, just hold your mouse over ‘Stories From Where You Sent Me‘ to find your favorite. If we have a vote going, click on ‘Voting‘ in the footer to put in your two-cents (don’t worry, voting costs you nothing).
In the meantime, please return your seatbacks and tray tables to an upright position and stow your carry-on luggage. Don’t turn off your electronic devices because you still have to click on “Vote” and tell me where to go (insert your own joke here).
