Travel Blog of the Day: Just One Way TIcket

The internet is laden with blogs about travel. You don’t have time to read them all, you have to figure out where you can legally buy, possess and launch your Fourth of July fireworks. This column will allow you to sift through the schlock and get back to avoiding an unwanted police presence! Check us out on twitter at #travelblogoftheday.

Everyone knows this story. You live in someplace god-awful cold and wake up one frozen day and look out the window at the dull, gray sky and see a foot of snow has fallen on top of everything. And that snow is weighing down not just the roof of your convertible, but also your soul. 

You decide you are going into work and quitting your job and you are going to travel the world.  This is the point where everyone chickens out goes back to the daily grind of the rat race. Well not everyone.

Just One Way Ticket

Sabrina Iovino is one half German, one half Italian and 100 percent awesome. She is intelligent, quite funny and very beautiful to boot.  Oh, and did I mention that she travels the world for a living? Back in 2008, Sabrina quit her job and with a very detailed plan (OK, she bought a one way ticket to Hong Kong), and set off on her way.  What I like the most about her is her humor and her humility. 

She claims not to be a good photographer, which she really is. She claims not to be able to blog in English that easily, while her English is at least as good as mine, if not better. The woman is a wealth of knowledge and if you want her recommendation on pretty much anything she has you covered under the heading of “Stuff I love.”

She blogs about once to twice a month and all entries are poignant and relevant, not to mention fun. She posts videos which are edited extremely well by her boyfriend and her YouTube travel is worth spending more than a moment on. 

So make some time and subscribe to her newsletter. You will be joining over 100,000 other people who do.
