Solo travel sometimes carries certain risks and dangers that you don’t experience when traveling with a partner or a group. Some of these risks are innocent misfortunes, such as getting lost in a new place with no battery on your phone, while others may be more sinister, like being targeted because you’re alone. Whenever I’m getting ready for a solo adventure, I’ve got no less than 7 people (you now who you are, love you) concerned that I, a 21–year–old, somewhat naive–looking, female is traveling alone. And I’ll be honest, the first few times I travelled alone I was scared and I have ended… View Post

Any long–time readers know that Mostly Morgan has gone through a glow up or two in the past three and a half years, and has transformed to fit my life. My goal has always been to stay true to my experiences while still creating content that you enjoy and ask for.

  Maybe it’s just me, but summers aren’t complete without a good road trip or two.

The first time I ever traveled alone I was 18 and visiting my best friend in Texas and I had nothing short of a melt down before take off because I had a feeling that the plane was going to crash. Now I know that “feeling” was just paranoia, but at the time I thought I was having a That’s So Raven moment. Since then I’ve been on dozens of flights and at this point, I don’t experience any jitters at all.… View Post

A few weeks ago Chris and I adventured away from the blistering cold that is the midwest in January and headed to visit his family in southern California. I’d never been, and it’s been a few years since he’d made it out that way so it felt like a new adventure for both of us. This was our first time traveling together – and luckily for us it went pretty smoothly. Of course nothing is ever perfect and on our flight from the Quad Cities to Chicago we were still waiting to get off the plane when the gates closed for… View Post
