FIVE THINGS I’VE LEARNED FROM TRAVELING

MINDS ARE LIKE THE DOORS TO PLANES; THEY’RE MEANT TO BE OPEN It’s way too easy to be closed-minded. I’ll be the first to admit that there are many things my 20 year old self would turn my nose up at that my 30 year old self now embraces with open arms. We live in a society where everything from politics to religion comes along with a “My way of thinking is better than your way” mentality.

BEYOND BMORE GOES TO WASHINGTON, D.C.

As some of you may recall, when BEYOND BMORE was created I had much more in mind than just showcasing the various trips I’ve taken. I knew that besides just creating a travel blog, I had a much bigger purpose. While it is often easy to get so caught up in traveling that we forget where we come from; hailing from a city like Baltimore makes that impossible. Through both the good and the bad, Baltimore holds a special place in the hearts of those born and raised here. So, why not give back as much as possible and encourage others along the way? During the site’s launch week, our first giveaway was announced. Knowing that the birthday and national holiday commemorating the…
