Eat, Pray, Love - MY WAY!

I've been mentioning over the past few months that there's been a lot on my plate. For those reasons I had to put my blog to the side and work on sorting myself out. I've always debated travelling and this summer I kept thinking about leaving school for a while so I could travel. The idea of it was daunting. How could I just leave school? That's been my life for nearly 20 years! Yet I wanted to travel so badly. I just wanted the chance to experience another part of the world if I could.

A few days before school started I went to see the movie Eat, Pray, Love and it got me thinking again but of course, I was too frightened to actually go ahead and pull out of school. The idea lingered in my mind and I just couldn't shake the feeling that I just needed to do something unpredictable of me. So two days into school, I decided to pull out for the semester. YES! I did it. Trust me, it wasn't easy. I was panicking for the next week wondering if I had done the right thing but I know now that this is what I really needed.

Now you're probably wondering where I'm planning on going so I won't leave you in suspense any longer. I'll be flying out to Egypt! I'm terrified of travelling on my own but I can't wait to experience life there and more importantly meet up with my sister and nephew who have been there for the past year. I will try and travel elsewhere as well but for now Egypt is where I'm headed!


Since I'm travelling I thought, "why not post a video on how to pack clothing appropriately". Of course, it had to be a video involving one of my favourite leading ladies in fashion, Anna Dello Russo!

By the way, since the flight is long and I'll be spending some days relaxing by the beach if anyone has any book suggestions or ideas on what I can do please let me know!

Hugs and kisses,

  3. Hey Erica,

    Just read your blog about going to Egypt! You are going to have an amazing time. I went solo backpacking around Cairo, Luxor and Aswan last October and it was great! I was just going to suggest using "Lonely Planet" as a guide book if you wish to travel to other places around Egypt. It's what I always use when I go backpacking and I LOVE it!

    Enjoy your wonderful adventure!!

  4. Raz thank you for always being so supportive of my blog and of me general. I appreciate it so much!

    Elaine, you're definitely someone I can learn from. You just really enjoy life and traveling. I admire you for that.

    Nerissa, ill look into buying that book. How was it being solo? Were you afraid at all or had troubles with anything?
