For over a hundred years, more than 1.5 million visitors have traveled to DC each Spring to admire the cherry blossoms that bloom on 3,000+ trees across three park locations around DC: the Tidal Basin in West Potomac Park, in East Potomac Park (Hains Point), and on the grounds of the Washington Monument.
Winning the Contest
I had just gotten to the gym when I got the email from StudentUniverse saying, “You’re going to Taiwan!” It was a complete shock. I turned to my mother and said I was setting off for a new adventure in less than six months. I won the Fly N’ Bike Taiwan contest and would be cycling in Taiwan.
New year, new travel destinations. Every January, we all make the resolution to travel more, but how many of us actually follow through? With these exciting destinations and reasonable, discounted flights to get you there, there’s no reason you can’t check at least one off your list this year.
Dobry Den! Or rather, good day! Are you thinking of traveling abroad but are unsure if you have the funds to do so? Well, let me stop you right there! For four months, I have been lucky enough to live in the city of Prague in the Czech Republic as I continue my academic studies. For those of you who don’t know, Prague is actually over 50% cheaper to live in than New York. And with discounted flights to Prague available and lots of free things to do in Prague, you’ll have enough extra spending money to buy souvenirs for all your friends.
I could not believe it when I received the email that I had won StudentUniverse’s Fly N’ Bike Taiwan contest. Without any hesitation, I accepted! Six months later, I hopped on a thirteen hour flight headed for Taiwan. I had done very little research about the country. Friends told me what to eat while I was there, and that was about all I knew upon arrival! I had no concept of what the cycling would entail. Every moment was a surprise! I experienced a constant sensory overload that I’ve never experienced anywhere else in the world.
Traveling the world is not that simple. Many of us wish it, but few of us actually accomplish it. It is out of the ordinary for a person to have a fixed job and be able to explore the world at the same time. Most people desire security, and they prefer having a nine to five instead of backpacking. And that is completely understandable. What most people don’t think about is that there is actually a way to do both: work and travel. Doesn’t that sound perfect? Writing is the missing link between the two. Travel writing is the perfect way to earn money as you travel.
