I just discovered this site and wished I had it when I went to England in May 2011 by myself. I might be doing a solo trip to Thailand, so I’m looking at buying your book.

To whom ever it may concern~:

Hiya my name is Carmela, and after researching destinations, tips, and travelling options I happened to come across your site and believe it or not Ive actually sat here for two hours reading a number of them, there brilliant! Most of it is obvious but in the moment of mental break down due to stress and uncertantity its reasuring to visualise and hear other experiences that have their own unique stories or touch that makes you think: yea I can do that too! Having these simple instructions that are straight to the point persuaded me to read “you may also like…”.

I will be travelling to the US from the UK to endure a two month learning exchange scheme called camp america, I am hoping to travel from columbus to cleveland, from cleveland to buffalo and from buffalo to new york where I will either stay for a short while to shop before my visa runs out or attempt temporary work towards a bigger shop before leaving for the UK.

Eitherway I will be keeping a journal anyway but if I could provide you with a unique travelling experience for your blogs/ guides and possibly money in exchange, well I would’nt turn down that offer!

I would love to assist in some way, and once again thanks for a reasured travelors state of mind that I have gained since having come across your site.

Hope to hear from you soon,

Warm Regards

Carmela Cuesta.

Hello all! My name is Leah, I am 24 years old born in Ne Jersey. Coming from a big family with little money, never really had to leisure of traveling during my childhood teenage years. First trip away from home was when I was 18 years old to Costa Rica with a group of girlfriends. After seeing what the world had to offer, I was hooked. From that moment I saved up my money, left home and went off to a volunteer group called Surfing the Nations for one month in China, and three months in Wahiawa, Hawai. This was a 4 month commitment in which we spent time with the locals, took part in feeding the hungry programs, taught english, gave surfing lessons, and traveld and explored all the differnt cultures. From there it brought me to go to school in HawaiiPacific University where I graduted with a BSBA in International Busines and in the midst decided to study abroad in Spain. During spain I met my two roomates, a couple from Brazli who went to the same University as I in Hawaii, although we met for the first time in SPain and we lived together for 6 months. At the end of our stay they had brought me on a little surf trip to portugal to stay with there two twin friends. That is where I met the love of my life. When I met him I knew it was over, the next day was my plane ticket home and he asked me to stay, and solely but surely changed my ticket for two weeks later. Having one year left at school In hawaii I had returned, and 6 months later it just so happened that the man of my dreams I didnt know if I’d ever see again was being sent out to Hawaii for 2 months for his surfer sponsership ( he is professional surfer). In hawaii I decided to live with only brazilians, something to them had intrigued me and it was my goal to learn portuguese so from there we decided we wanted to be together and after I had graduate I moved out to Portuga to be with my boyfriend. l worked in all sorts of restaraunts, ate amazing food, surfed all day, learned the language, gained weight from all the amazing bread, experienced the norwegian and french culture immersly also because thats where his parents are from. We traveled off to France , for the World Surf competition, ITaly to eat amazing food and Morrocoo for one month. Became fluent in both Spanish and Portugal and now on my way trying to learn Arabic. AFter some time in portugal my loans started to creap up on me! I had to return home to ( new JErsey) where I began to work in hopsitality and a bit of sales rep on the side, saving money and trying to plan how Id reunite with my lover again.. We had to seperate for about 9 months back and forth from portugal to new jersey, until there was a secret battle going on wtih his ( french) fathers side who decided he did not want us to be together anymore. Since then we had been trying to figure out a way to be together, while I can also be paying my loans, and eventualy find a base to live. The fact is, hes a profesional surfer ( speaks 6 languages) and needs to be by the ocean, I owe a lot of money, we are both from different countries, the parents dont want us together, but we are in love. This past year we both went off to brazil in hopes of finding our ” base” and work, which we loved brazil but in the end had to leave and went off to hawaii again. We stayed in hawaii for 3 months , with a big wave ride surfer named Jamiliya Star, surfed, learned more about the hawaiin culture, worked in a pizza restaraunt, went on many interviews, but eventually his immigration was up so he had to go back to portugal, and I whos loans started creeping up, couldnt afford to stay in hawaii, nor portugal because the wage is so low and the family doesnt want us together, had to go back to new jersey in which we are sepeareted again for 5 months. We have been seperating on and off for 5 months out of the year for 3 years since we met . but our love staying strong. Both of our dream is to one day have our own ” Simple breathing resort” where people can come and stay over, , have a health juice bar cafe for the mornings, have surf lessons, yoga classses, and maybe some language courses here and there. Now I am home saving money and about to adventure off to meet him in Norway, since tickets are cheaper to get there, and from there we buy a ryanair ticket back to portugal for 10 days. He will have a surf competition that I get to watch, and I will face the family who doesnt like me! From here we had thoughts of going to Indonesia, to surf of course, learn some of the language, and look into buying fabric and things we would like to sell on a website I am in the process of. I am also in the process of getting my Teaching engilsh certificate. This year we are both looking for a base again, I have been looking into jobs in the resort/hotel industry, and recently been looking into teaching english jobs, for the time being.I have worked in the restaraunt industry, in a very unique conglomoerate that is called caribean vacation food, that has gotten me passed all these years of school, traveling etc. I am really looking now to expand and end the seperation, in looks of a career. I have been looking into travel writing for a while now, it has always been a dream of mine, as I love to write in my journal, I have 8 collected from the start of my China journey. Its how i learn languages and how I can come back and reflect on all that I had learned and experience during my stay. I saw your site and thought, gosh I have so much to write about!! Even if it is just starting off one blog a week, I have many journeys in the future ahead and many stories from the past to write about. Please let me know if there are any speficic topics you are looking for and how I can become involved. Thanks so much!!!

Leah

Hi! I’d sent an email at the above address on September 12, 2013, introducing myself and looking to get involved as a blogger. I never heard back, and I was just wondering whether you received it. :)

Hey,

I’m writing with a story idea that I think would fit well in for ‘Go! Girl Guides’ blog. I noticed that there are few articles outlining young girls’s travel, especially in the more obscure holiday destinations such as Poland.

As an 18 year old student and hopeful travel writer I have been visiting various countries that my girlfriends never seem to take an interest in and surprisingly Warsaw has been the best yet. I have recently written some articles I’ve put together after spending a few weeks there in February; on why youths should travel to places in Europe, even for party destinations, and 10 things to do in Warsaw for music lovers. Me and a couple of friends travelled there in hope of finding some new musical inspirations, as they are both upcoming DJ’s around East Anglia, and the trip inspired me to spread the experience I had there and try to encourage more girls in my age group to travel to places other than the usual party destinations. This was because I am noticing more and more that girls my age are travelling to the more dangerous destinations to have a good time where as I have discovered you can have much more fun in the places you wouldn’t expect – even when you want a good taste in music! Places such as Ibiza and Malia are so commonly visited now I feel they have lost their touch and no longer mix the beauty of the country with the music. Even in Warsaw there was not a tourist in sight and the upcoming clubs were filled with the taste of Polish culture that I had not yet discovered.

I have noticed after months of trawling through some of the blogs at ‘Girl Guides’ that you have a focus on travelling safely for women which is what drove me to contact you. After doing some work for the EDP on a range of things from new trains to charity swimmers I have leaned more towards travel writing and have been interested in writing for blogs/sites such as yours since. I feel I have leaned towards music especially in most articles when travelling Europe and hope to travel more in the future with the same aspects involved. After the summer I am also planning to move to London with the group of DJ’s that I have been travelling with where I can begin my course in Anthropology after finishing the Politics and Philosophy foundation I have just been doing in Norwich. I hope this will broaden my horizons further in my knowledge of the cultures surrounding me and ideas for future articles on my travels.

If you want me to send you some of the most recent articles or any photographs I have captured of Poland to accompany these than let me know. My blog address is written at the bottoms and my soundcloud if you wanted to check out any music or writing I have been doing as of late.

Thanks a lot
