Anonymous asked: Sorry this has to be anonymous due to my lack of an active Tumblr, but I'm a nineteen year-old Australian girl currently living abroad and I wanted to share with you my latest blog post because, in essence, it was inspired by your posts and attitude towards travel. I can't link it but my blogspot address is herlittlecottonsocks and it's the most recent entry, titled Have Deep Roots...
strongfashion asked: susanna :) from the bottom of my heart - i wanted to say THANK YOU! I'm 17 years old, living in germany and two years ago i left high school without an degree. The german school system is doubtful and i just couldn't stand it anymore. It made me sick. This world means so much more than grades! There were many people who said to me "You will never reach anything in life without an...
If I ever...
If I ever have kids, I hope they go headfirst over the handlebars of their bike, once in a while. I hope they come home with dirt and grass stains, a canvas the earth colored on, tangled hair, sweat and sun kissed cheeks. I hope they break at least one bone, have skinned knees and elbows. I hope they swing as high as they can and then leap, to see where they land. I hope they learn how to pull...
Anonymous asked: I am wanting to work and travel in New Zealand and maybe Australia as well next year. The only problem is my friend wants to go with me and I don't know if I want her to come or not. At first I thought it would be cool because then I wouldn't be so scared about the whole thing but now I'm questioning myself... She gets on my nerves sometimes and I feel like we would get annoyed of...
Will be taking a trip to Central America this...
Meanwhile, can anyone recommend me any books, films, music, art of/from Central America? I haven’t decided which countries I’ll be visiting yet, but I’m already eager to get into the spirit! P.S. This was not the trip I was vaguely referred to a few months ago, I think, that I didn’t want to talk about simply because people would try to talk me out of it or think I had a...

She’s a lovely, intelligent girl and it’d be heartbreaking for her education, that she so wishes to continue, to be cut short and end like this.
Anonymous asked: If it wasn't for your tumblr, I don't know if I would be on the verge of dropping out of college at the moment. I don't know if I would be questioning the system as much as I am now and what it means to be successful and happy in life. I don't even know if I would have thought about traveling. I do know that you alone have changed my life. You are inspirational. A beautiful...
in-descent asked: Hi Susanna, so I'm going to Argentina this summer for two weeks to visit a friend. I'm so excited about it but my family is just concerned about my safety and whatnot. I know it's something I truly want to do in my heart I just don't know how to go about easing their concerns. How do you deal with family and friends being skeptical about your travels?
The Lies They Tell You
Beauty companies will tell you that every woman deserves to feel beautiful, but then they’ll tell you that you need their product to achieve that beauty you so deserve. They’ll never tell you that every woman deserves to feel beautiful in her own bare skin, sans being slathered in lotions and creams and cover-ups. They’ll never tell you that no woman should live with the unease...
