Okay, so maybe some of you know this by now, and maybe some of you don’t. But here it goes: I am single.
(Okay, maybe it wasn’t as dramatic as it played out in my mind to be…) I will say though, being single has been a bittersweet thing in my life for me. Mostly sweet though.

I’d much rather travel than be in a relationship. Here’s 6 reasons why:”
