Who Inspired Me to Become a Tour Director?

Who Inspired Me to Become a Tour Director?

I was inspired to travel by my family. I remember riding in the car along the winding mountainside in Southern California with Papa (my granddad) simultaneously driving and pointing down a deep ravine scaring the bejesus out of us. I can feel the long-healed bumps and bruises earned from a terrible experience of us ice [...]

Just a General Update

Just a General Update

Well, it's been over a year since I posted anything on TravelMorganTravel. The simple reason is that I haven't really been traveling. Since I last posted in April 2018, I spent two weeks in Belfast, Northern Ireland collecting fieldwork for my Master's Project...

I’M GOING BACK TO IRELAND!!!

I’M GOING BACK TO IRELAND!!!

For a week. But STILL! I'm going back to Ireland! One month from now, I will be jet setting to the Emerald Isle to get my fix on Bulmers cider and Cadbury caramels.  I plan to see all of my friends and wander by my old apartment.  I. Cannot. Wait. My week over there will [...]

Back on the Move

Back on the Move

Well, it's been a super long time since I've published anything on here. Amazingly, a few people still click over to my blog. I don't know why. Maybe there's a few residual posts out there still circulating. That's cool I guess. It's really difficult to run a travel blog when you're not, you know, traveling. [...]

What Happens to the Friends You Make Abroad

What Happens to the Friends You Make Abroad

As you travel around the world, you meet all kinds of people. Some of these people are scum bags, others are God sent. A bunch of these people will become your friends, but only a few will become your forever friends. Some will be friends to your face while talking about you behind your back. [...]

Starting 2016 with a Bang

Starting 2016 with a Bang

Below is a column I wrote for the Times-Georgian. Hope you enjoy! Looking back on 2015 is fun. I had a wonderful time adventuring around the USA. I saw the Grand Canyon, Cherry Blossom Festival, the Rocky Mountains, and swam in the ocean. It’s hard to believe I was able to accomplish so much! But [...]

Top Post of 2015

Top Post of 2015

Believe it or not, the top post of 2015 is The Time I Went to a Psychic. I literally laughed out loud when I saw that! That was such an arbitrary day when Payton and I decided to pop in to see Sylvia. Since she and I visited the psychic in March, I figured I should [...]

12 Trips in 12 Months – Yet Another Update

I was thinking about it this morning, and I've actually already officially done my 12 trips in 12 months! Initially, I was going for all of 2015, but then I thought about the trips that I took when I returned home from Ireland. October, I drove out to Louisiana to visit a friend. https://www.instagram.com/p/uoKDsnqjrY/ November, [...]

Why I’m Not Afraid to Travel Amidst the Turmoil

Why I’m Not Afraid to Travel Amidst the Turmoil

Have you ever stopped and really looked around your own town? There's crime, prejudice, and hate everywhere. I understand that some people are filled with more hate and violence than others, and I respect their ability to do harm to me. But that does not stop me from traveling. Why should it? If I let [...]

Baseball 2015

Baseball 2015

In the 2015 MLB season, I did not make it to a single Atlanta Braves baseball game, but I did go to Opening Day of another team and I saw the Yankees play the Mets. Basically, I did everything a bad  Braves fan should do short of cheering for the Phillies. It all started when [...]
