Being Selfish When You Travel

Being Selfish When You Travel by Jetplane Jean

For as long as I can remember, I have always picked books over parties, as well as myself over others in the sense I just really, really like to be alone. The silence I can surround myself with is as sweet as any melody that has ever graced my ears as it leaves me to my thoughts, for better or worse. I’ve never had a problem striking out on my own, especially when there’s something I’ve been yearning to do…

Why Are There Horses Swimming At This Barbados Beach?

Why There Are Horse Swimming at this Barbados Beach: A travel guide to the Caribbean Island of Barbados at sunrise

Stumbling out of bed, I felt my way over to the sliding door and opened to a blast of warm air outside. Looking down below to the beach to check for any signs of life, there was one lone jogger tracing the shoreline. The sound of the waves crashing against the shore made a tempting argument to fall asleep to the melodic rhythm, but I began rubbing my eyes a little harder to stay awake. The sun hadn’t begun to…

From Brooklyn With Love: Year Two

New York City Pickle Day

Here I am, two years into living in New York City and finally feeling comfortable, perhaps too much so, in this place. The rumble of the subway only slightly registers in my ears now and a perpetual stream of honking becomes daily background noise. The steady hum of the city is energizing and comforting all at once.

Photography, as well as writing, have always been my two weapons of choice to document the memories I’d otherwise forget. Surprisingly enough, I’ve started to realize my photography style is completely different from my written musings. When I go back searching for a certain type of photo, I find more landscapes and candids. In my travel journals, it’s filled with brief encounters, spellings of places I dined at, the outfits I wore, and pricing of the expensive food I ate in Iceland.…

What Happened to California’s Famous Hot Pink Jim Morrison Cave?

What happened to the secret hot pink Jim Morrison cave in Malibu California?

Stumbling into the car before dawn, armed with sunscreen and several water bottles, I was finally ready to take on hiking in LA. Nervous for the oppressive heat and minimal tree cover, I again took advantage of jet-lag leaving me wide awake at 5 am for once. By the time the alarm blared, I was ready for our morning trek. Or at least as ready as someone who only packed hi-top Converse can be, but hey. I had heard about the legendary…

Stop Hiding Behind The Camera While Traveling

Take More Travel Selfies: Stop Hiding Behind The Camera: Why It's So Important To Be In Your Own Travel Photos

During an event back in Connecticut I was working recently, my job was to go around and ask families if they wanted their picture taken. 98% of the time, people always said yes, eager to have some sort of digital proof that they were there for the day. I also tend to approach people already taking a photo of their friends or family, mainly because it’s already set-up and there’s a definite yes that they want more than just a…
