Top 5 Things That Are NOT Best in Moderation

1- Pomegranates. Pom season doesn’t last very long…so indulge, indulge, indulge. Just make sure you’re not wearing white/around anyone towards whom you have romantic inclinations…that sh&% is not pretty [but tastes so good!].

2- Travel. The more you go, the more you know! As the over-pinned quote states, “Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.”

3- Reading. Not only is it an extremely rewarding and interesting activity, it also teaches you how to SPELL!

4- Laughter. Do whatever it takes to get this in EVERY DAY. For me, it’s ridiculous memes online…but for you it might be The Daily Show or Kardashian Kouture.

5- Walking. Did you know that Manhattan is only 13.4 miles long and 2.3 miles wide? That taxi to Sunday Brunch *might* not be necessary.

Top 5 Reasons To Travel Alone

1- Travel can bring out the the worst, and I mean the worst, in a person–particularly the more high-maintenance types. Do yourself a favor and leave the blowdryer addicts, public transit-phobes, and the A/C divas at home.

2- You don’t have to go see the Statue of Liberty, Eiffel Tower, or Tower of London for the 89723128th time. For anyone who travels regularly, this can be the worst part of bringing along newbs. Go solo and you have the time to search out a city’s hidden gems!

3- No one has to know that you ate at McDonald’s on your trip abroad.

4- You’re forced to make an effort with the locals…which can (and does!) produce lifelong friends. In addition, these friends are more likely to know of the best spots to visit on your trip!

5- It’s unbelievably liberating. There aren’t words to describe the confidence/pride you feel after navigating your way, completely alone, through multiple countries, airports, train depots, ports, bus stations, and subway systems. I-n-d-e-p-e-n-d-e-n-t, yea you know what that means!
