Beyond Small Talk is an open-hearted intensely personal journal, written while travelling around Thailand, The Philippines, Bali, and India.

There are plenty of high-quality travel blogs out there offering recommendations and logistic advice. Beyond Small Talk is not one of them.

It is a no-holes-barred attempt to highlight the full spectrum of the experience of a solo journey. As much about personal perspectives and observations as it is about travel – the purpose of the blog is to expose and narrate my individual story, with the hopes of inspiring and entertaining along the way.
