Hi, I’m Anshula (pronounced un-shah-lah)!
I’m a Texas girl. 21. I love chocolate and scrunchies and window seats and road trips.

Are You Traveling Right Now?
Nope! All the articles I’m currently posting are based on past trips (some two to three years old – still digging through those photo archives).
But once it’s completely safe to travel normally again, rest be assured: I will be taking a gap year and going on an RTW trip!
Update: I took one day trip to an indie bookstore in Waco. It wasn’t as scary as I thought it would be (though it felt a bit strange and dystopian). Luckily, most every everyone inside was wearing masks!
How Much Coffee Do You Drink A Day?
I’ve been getting asked this question so much as of late. I drink about one cup a day if I’m not researching for a post. If I’m researching for one of my “best of in a city” posts, I average around four to six cups a day. But this is definitely not the norm on a typical work day!
Fun fact: I hated coffee until I turned 21. It’s hard to believe considering how many cafes I recommend on the blog. But there are so many remnants of me bashing coffee in some of my older posts (so glad that’s changed).
What Are You Currently Reading?
- Our Eden Book Club Picks for this month!
- Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
What’s Your Favorite Destination?
Kingston, Jamaica because it’s home. And home is where my heart is.
Can I Pick Your Brain About Blogging?
Yes! Absolutely. The fastest way to get a response is via email: [email protected] (I usually respond within 24 hours but sometimes it takes a little longer).
2020 (Now 2021) Goals
- Visit Yellowstone National Park. I need some serious cheap flight mojo for this. Wish me luck!
- Travel sustainably (I’m reading up on this a lot. If you run a sustainable travel blog or have any tips, please send them over – much appreciated).
Introduce Yourself. I Want To Know You
If there is one thing I LOVE more than traveling, it’s getting to know my readers. Send me an email introducing yourself. Do you run a blog? I’d love to read it. Do you have an amazing travel story? I’d love to hear it. Please don’t hesitate to reach out!
I’ll list some types of questions I frequently get so you have a better idea of what readers are sending me. But you can honestly email me about anything.
- I’m moving to Dallas, what are the best areas to stay in?
- Have you read (insert book here)?
- I like (insert genre here), what books do you recommend? (strangely enough, I get more book-related questions than travel-related questions)
- Do you have recommendations for X city? (usually, this is a city that isn’t listed on my blog. In this case, I find a local travel blogger or regional expert to refer you to).
I also value your input. Do you have additions for any of my guides? Is there a destination I haven’t covered that’s on your bucket list? Let me know.
On that note, thank you for stopping by. It really means the world to me (*reaches out for another bear hug*). I hope you find infinite pieces of paradise.
