Hi, my name is Allison, but you can call me Yasmine.

Wait, why is this blog called Naptime With Yasmine? Who’s Yasmine and why am I napping with her? I’m a millennial, but this is no millennial travel blog (Can’t take a good photo and don’t feel like spending hours to do it.) 

This is a blog that focuses on people, travel, and living and working abroad with a sense of humor and a social conscience. I am a traveler, but also a feminist and advocate, questioning the impact of my presence and the implications of my actions abroad.

So, where do you start?

Travel Anecdotes & Advice:

  • Browse through all that food, the activities, those crazy people and odd encounters that have to do with traveling here
  • I made some mistakes, and did some things right. Hear about it all in the advice section
  • Hey, do you love animals? What about goats, camels, and cows?
  • Southeast Asia is more than just cheap hostels!
  • I didn’t “find myself” on the Camino de Santiago in northern Spain, but I certainly peed in a lot of nature and met some entertaining people
  • Europe – its charm and its glory
  • Where am I now? You guessed it! …Straya

Life on Ibiza:

Life in Australia:

  • Read to your heart’s content about life (not down under, but) in that country/continent where people say funny things

Working Abroad:

People and our behaviors around the world:

…These are good places to start. Use the search bar, and please feel free to contact me on the form with any questions or comments. Enjoy! Below is a letter that I wrote when I first started this blog in March 2015. 


 

Dear readers,

As His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama said, “When I wake in the morning I make a wish to be useful to others.”  It is my hope that I can be useful by sharing my experiences on living and working abroad, learning and questioning, and trying to live in a way that increases the quality of life for others.  I try to find the humor and lightheartedness in daily life and encourage sharing, collaboration, and acceptance of all lifestyles. I envision a world where all are fulfilled, self-expressed, and safe.

Here, you’ll find articles and photography relating to travel, uncomfortable social situations, social commentary, working abroad and a number of things that simply can’t be confined to any one category. As many things in life cannot.

I am writing from my perspective as conditioned by my social circumstances, and therefore invite you to engage with and debate my ideas and opinions. However, I urge you to do it in a way that is conducive to dialog, and not in such a way that hurts or damages. I am constantly curious, forever searching, and always asking. I hope you are inspired to do the same.

Have a meaningful, and most importantly, entertaining life.

With love,

Yasmine/Allison
