A Travellerspoint blog

By this Author: TalonToday


My last entry was over a year ago, wow, sorry about that! I traveled to Germany for my birthday this year. Not sure if I would go back, but it was definitely interesting! It was cold, and being a vegetarian who craves fresh fruits and veggies daily, it was tough. The architecture was magnificent and the people were kind, so definitely worth the while.
At the moment, I am planning my travels for the next year. most people call it a "gap year" but for me, I'm just traveling and working and living freely until I decide I'm ready to go back into the world of schedules and reports and grades. oh grades, something I wont have to worry about for a long time!

Heres the travel plans for the next year:
late September: California to visit people for a week or so
October: El Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua then to Buenos Aires, just backpacking, relaxing, meeting people
Early November: Patagonia for 4 months working and living on a retreat ranch
March: Santiago, Chile for a month working at a language school teaching English.
After that I plan to head to Africa, possibly working with WWOOF, and perhaps after that Laos or New Zealand or Paris, who knows!

I would love to hear about any ones experiences in these places, and places I must go, perhaps good hostels to stay at?
I already have most of it figured out, but I can tell you now, no matter what, it will be the experience of a lifetime, one I have been waiting for for years. My mom is terrified, and so am I, in a good way. I can feel the butterflies building up in my stomach, ready to be let free, ready to fly, just like me.

I have also started a new blog, so I wont be on here very much....as you can see, I'm already horrible about updates!

Excitement is Building

my goodness, I havent really ever written. I'm just too busy. I wrote over a year ago, I am not 16, going to be 17 in 1 week. I am also heading to Hawaii in 1 week. and I cant wait, I want to start packing now, but unfortunately, I have homework to do...so I really shouldnt be on here at all. I just wanted to express my excitement! I have been stuck at home for too long. Its kind of unfortunate that I already have such a strong case of the travel bugs at such a young age. it is going to grow so extremely fast, and I am not going to be able to keep up...ohh well, marry a millionaire I suppose...then never bring him on any of the trips. ha!
I just had to write really quickly about my excitement! I just cant wait to have good food, sun and happiness.
and now there probably wont be another post in a long time.

Enjoy what you have! <3

Whats in a Name?


My name is Talon. But what does that matter? You’re reading this to discover more about a country you may be traveling to or perhaps for the photography. You don’t care about me. Well guess what? I don’t care what you think and you’re going to have to suck it up and listen. I am a 15 year old girl, 16 in a little more then a month, and I love to travel.
I have a thirst for new experiences and travelling seems to quench that thirst, at least for a short period of time. Most of my friends don’t have the chance to travel so I cherish the trips I take, the people I meet and most of all the experiences I have. I also am in love with photography and of course, traveling provides me with some pretty amazing shots. Also, I love fashion, soccer, painting, snowboarding and much more.
I live in Washington State on a little island near Seattle. It’s beautiful here but I prefer the city. I can’t wait to visit New York. I have travelled a lot around the Western United States and been to plenty of Canada. My dad travels a lot in his work and always wanted to take me with him but according to my mom I was always too young. A couple years ago we started getting really serious about getting me to travel with him planning trips to Paris and the Lesser Antilles. Somehow these plans never seemed to follow through and we always ended up going to Hawaii instead. Don’t get me wrong, I live Hawaii but I’m in it for the new places, new experiences, somewhere I am completely out of my element. This past summer was the first time we actually traveled somewhere. But it took the help of several people and constant prodding from me to make it happen (my dad is insanely lazy when it comes to these things). We finally decided on Botswana. Unfortunately the days passed quicker and quicker and the flights we kept on not buying, got fuller and fuller. Finally the only flights left were ones with about 4 layovers and cost WAY too much. So we decided to push it back another year. Instead my dad very kindly took me to Belize (which I will describe in my next post) this past summer and we set Botswana for this coming summer. Well guess what? It got pushed back again, already! We have some friends from Botswana who are visiting their home in summer of 2011 and they said we could come with them, how amazing would it be to go to Botswana with some of its natives? It would be absolutely, insanely amazing! So we pushed it back to go with them. This leaving summer 2010 wide open. So this summer we are going to China to visit my aunt and uncle! She is Chinese and moved to Canada for the past several years to be with my uncle and now they want to move back and live with her family. It will really be amazing and I can’t wait. So there you have it, my travel plans for the next two years. And I have many, many more, too many to share in one post.


Also I have a regular blog: talontoday.blogspot.com incase anyone is interested in my regular life.
