From creator Jena Sprau, comes RiseandRoam, a current and relevant blog for travelers around the world. The blog includes advice for destinations throughout Europe, North and South America, and Asia, as well as general advice for travelers. These topics range from how to deal with culture shock, and holidays abroad, to saying goodbye. As the blog itself notes, "what to write that hasn’t already been said? Go out and travel, do it while you can, before you have a spouse and kids, real responsibilities. All of that is true, but it’s never too late to travel, to follow your dreams." We couldn't agree more this philosophy!
Why We Love It
Upon entering the RiseandRoam travel blog, you'll notice that it is well organized, easy to navigate, and categorized by what interests travelers the most. From students going abroad for the first time to teachers who need information on obtaining a visa, we agree with the blog in that everyone will find something of relevance at RiseandRoam!
We also love Jena's philosophy on travel as described on the blog: "As young adults, we often find ourselves preoccupied with worries about school, jobs, money, friends, family, or love. Traveling allows us to reevaluate our lives. To take a step back, imagine the entire picture, and realize that we’re just a tiny piece of this puzzle. These worries really aren’t so big after all." Whether you’re getting ready to set out on a solo backpacking adventure, teaching abroad, or studying in a foreign country, RiseandRoam promises to provide you with advice and a sense of calm. Combine this advice with the detailed photo essays on RiseandRoam, and you'll be returning again and again to see what tips will be shared next.
