Guest post by Danielle Ditizan From Hobo to Digital Nomad: My Journey to Success by Doing What I Love

Hi Everyone, 
I want to introduce the gorgeous and inspirational Danielle Ditizan From likeridingabicycle.com
If this girl doesn't inspire you, there is something wrong with you. What a life. 

From Hobo to Digital Nomad: My Journey to Success by Doing What I Love
For the past five years straight, I have been traveling this earth without a home base. Yes, I’m a true nomad – I have no home base at all, and prefer to find mini homes along the way. So I must have had a ton of money when I started to make this work, right? I mean, five years is a long time.
Wrong.
When I began my travels I had $6,000 in credit card debt, and not one penny in the positive. To boot, my credit card was maxed out, so even using it and racking up more debt was simply not an option. No, I had to find a way to either make some money, or figure out how to live without. I really hadn’t a clue how I would do either one.
After a short trip to the States off $100, I headed to Australia on a working holiday visa (yes, I had to borrow the money to even get my visa and to get a flight to Australia. I was that broke.) So at that point I had not only my credit card debt, but some extra debt to my mom who, although she loved me and wanted me to be happy, had little faith in my path ahead.
All that would come to change over the years.
At first I worked as a bartender and waitress in Australia, slowly but surely hacking away at my debt. The country is extremely expensive, but fortunately also pays very well. I stayed in hostels and lived off instant noodles to keep me going. Although I was making good money, nearly all of it went towards that pesky debt.
Soon I grew tired of Australia, and decided to do a working holiday visa over in New Zealand. There I continued to hack away at the debt, working this time in an office. Finally, one day, the debt was no more. I was free.
Just one problem: while the debt was gone, I was still left with a grand total of zero dollars. This was going to require some more resourcefulness on my part – a resourcefulness I never knew I had until it all began.

The first step was learning to hitchhike and wild camp. My biggest need at the time was to find a way to live my dreams – the life of a nomad – even when I had no money. Cash was not something I ever wanted to halt me in my quest for happiness, and being on the road I was the happiest I’d ever been – debt or not. I figured it out slowly, and became confident hopping in cars with strangers and finding somewhere no matter where I found myself to safely hide my tent away for the night. I even learned to dumpster dive – though I’ve seldom actually done it – so that I had the full package: I could get around, find shelter, and eat without any money. In fact, I once hitchhiked from the very west to the very east of Canada – and back again – on a whole $20.
But gradually things have shifted. This began when I hitchhiked with my boyfriend at the time to Mexico. We were completely out of money, and man, we needed work. But finding work under the table for a person who doesn’t speak much Spanish is easier said than done. He succeeded, finding work at a surf shop for a measly $2 an hour. Mexico may be cheap, but it isn’t that cheap that you can live off such an income.
It was time to think outside the box. What could I do to earn proper money so as to continue my travels? I had a flashback to my sedentary days when I worked briefly in a law office, much of my job being transcription work. Though I didn’t have much hope that I could find online transcription work, it was worth a shot. I sent out over one hundred emails to companies who hired transcribers remotely. I recall that day, saying to my boyfriend, “Sorry I’m so busy today. I’m sure this won’t work out, but you never know unless you try, right?”
Within a couple days a few transcription agencies had responded, asking me to do test files. After acing them, it all began: I now worked online.
Of course, transcription is not the most entertaining of jobs. Sometimes you’re typing great content that is fascinating – like when I secured a job transcribing podcasts on the history of Disney. Most of the time, however, the content was dry, and would suck my soul just listening to and typing it.
An evolution had to occur once more; I had to continue to make money to travel (even if it was only a tiny bit, as I had the resources behind me to live off barely anything, but I had little desire for going back to living off absolutely nothing). Over time I’ve worn many hats – from doing online surveys for a pitiful quantity of money to working as a virtual assistant to a popular travel blogger.

Finally, these days, I earn money from my own blog and from working to secure advertisements on multiple blogs. Oddly enough, I make a bit more than minimum wage back home, but I work for myself and live in a tent; my expenses are minimal, with zero bills at all, making minimum wage seem like a god send. I even get to do awesome things like the Stratosphere rides and jump in Vegas as well as skydiving and the like, all in exchange for reviews on my blog that I built up over time!
It was all a massive journey, and I stumbled and fumbled my way here. Did I know I’d be doing what I am now when I began? I hadn’t a clue! But somehow I made it, and am content with my life and my work. If you do what you love, you will be successful, for success is not measured in money or social acceptance, but in what makes you happy.
And I am very happy.

cycling adventure In The North Pennines


Hi Everyone

The Mighty Pennines

For walkers and cyclists, heading to the North of England could make for the perfect adventure. The North Pennines can be the greatest escape for anyone looking to remove themselves from city life and focus on their own wellbeing. The Pennines gained the title Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1988 as it is one of the greatest landscapes in the UK, so if you haven’t been already – you’re really missing out.

But what makes the ‘mighty Pennines’ worth visiting?

Depending on what you plan to do there, whether you’re a hiker or a cyclist, there will never be a dull moment. With the stunning views that this heritage site provides, you will constantly be pushing yourself to find the most magnificent spot – although this could prove to be difficult as the entire area is breath-taking.
This place can be challenging at times, but that seems to be the core reason as to why people keep returning regularly to head out and achieve more of their goals. The North Pennines has heather moors, peatlands, dales, meadows, upland rivers and woodland areas, meaning you have plenty to explore when you get there.
With the help of Leisure Lakes Bikes, we’re going to plan your entire itinerary. So, grab your cube mountain bikes and hiking boots and make your way to this stunning part of the country to create everlasting memories…

Where to start?

One of the better cycle routes in the North Pennines is the Wear & Rockhope Valleys, as it has a bit of everything. From the Burnhope Reservoir to Lintzgarth Arch, the beautiful scenes will encourage you to keep pedalling and complete this trail.
You should begin at the Durham Dales Centre in Stanhope, so if you’re staying for the night you might want to book a hotel close by where you can relax after that long ride. The Durham Dales Centre is home to a gift shop, craft shop and tea room, giving you the opportunity to have a warm drink before you set off on your journey.

Beginning your journey

Once you’ve got your bike ready and you’re all prepared to leave, exit the Durham Dales Centre and follow the A689 towards Stanhope Town Hall – don’t be tempted to stop at the Stanhope Fish and Chips shop, you need to stay focused.
Continue to follow this road and you will eventually come to a bridge that you need to cross. Proceed in the direction you’re currently going in, before taking your third right and following the road upwards. You will pass Greenfoot Hotel and Greenhead Farm before eventually reaching Rockhope. If you need to have a break in Rockhope, The Rockhope Inn would be the ideal place to stop. It has outdoor seating so you can grab a drink and freshen yourself up.
Once you’ve passed Saint John’s Church, continue forward where you will then reach the town centre. Here, take your second left, following the main road channelling the Rockhope Burn river where you will come to Allenheads. Once you’ve reached Allenheads, a stopping off point would be the Allenheads Inn as it a popular destination for cyclists and hikers alike.
Once you come into Allenheads, take a right and stay on the B6295 road and you will be in Cowshill. In Cowshill, the only place you will be able to stop at will be the Cowshill Hotel. Fortunately, they are more than welcoming to cyclists who are stopping by for a well-deserved break. After this visit, follow the road downwards where you will come to the A689 road — remain on this road and continue to Ireshopeburn.
Then you will cycle past St John’s Chapel and Daddry Shield — make sure to stay on Pleasant Road and not divert onto any other route. This area is full of different cafes and pubs, including Chatterbox Café, The Golden Lion and The Blue Bell Inn. You will then reach Brotherlee, where you need to remain on the road that you’re currently on and eventually you will pass Horsley Hall – a country hotel. Continue following this road and you will reach a bridge crossing the River Wear. Take the right onto the B6278 here and you will be back in Stanhope!
To complete your journey, take a right and head back towards the Durham Dales Centre and relax!

How long will it take?

The entire distance to complete this route is 24.36 miles. If you’re completing this at a speed of 10mph, you should complete this in 2 hours, 26 minutes. For those who are a bit quicker, at 13mph you will reach the finish line in 1 hour, 52 minutes.
At 19mph though, you will complete this course in 1 hour and 16 minutes. If you’re going 22mph, however, you will complete this cycle route in just 1 hour and 6 minutes.

Any challenges?

Hills can be a test for some cyclists and depending on the weather conditions, these can become even more challenging. Fortunately, we’ve listed these in advance so that you know what you’re in for:
  • The Brandon Walls and Hill Top has a height of 1570ft and will take 2 miles to complete.
  • Rookhope Head has a height of 1745ft and will only take 0.75 miles.
  • Burtree Fell has a height of 1836ft and will take up 1.8 miles of your journey.

Pets - should they be in your bedrooms or not?

Hi everyone, 


Do you have a cat or a dog? Do you let your dog or cat sleep in your bedroom or on your bed? You are certainly not alone, as a survey commissioned by leading pet insurer Animal Friends found that nearly half of owners sleep with their pets.
So is it a good idea to welcome your pet into your bedroom? Fitted bedroom specialists DM Design has analysed the arguments both for and against this decision:

The case for pets being in the bedroom
A study carried out by the Mayo Sleep Clinic, a leading clinic based in Arizona, USA, supports the case for welcoming your pets into your bedroom.
After surveying 150 patients — 49 per cent of whom owned at least one pet — the researchers found that over half of those with animals in their let them sleep either in their bedroom or on their bed.
However, the study also revealed that those who did felt safer, more secure, more relaxed and had a better night’s rest. On the other end of the scale, just 20 per cent of those with pets said that they experienced interrupted sleep due to their pets ‘snoring’, ‘wandering’ or ‘whimpering’ when they were in the bedroom.
Lois Krahn, the author of the study, commented: 'Many pet owners view companion animals as family members that they wish to incorporate into as many aspects of their life as possible. Because humans spend considerable time sleeping, a pet owner's desire to have animals close at night is understandable.”
Dr Krahn also pointed out from the study’s results that people who slept alone — whether due to being single or because their partner had to occasionally travel or work at night — “more often spoke of the beneficial companionship stemming from a pet in the bedroom or on the bed”.
This isn’t the only instance where research carried out at the Mayo Sleep Clinic has revealed results in favour of having pets in the bedroom.
In a study of 40 healthy adults who had their sleep evaluated with a dog in the bedroom over a five-month period — with both the humans and dogs wearing activity trackers for the research — it was established that people slept better when the pet was on their bed. However, sleep quality was sacrificed when people allowed their dogs to sleep under the covers with them.
In regard to this particular study, carried out by Mayo Clinic’s Centre for Sleep Medicine, Dr Krahn acknowledged: “The relationship between people and their pets has changed over time, which is likely why many people in fact do sleep with their pets in the bedroom.
“Today, many pet owners are away from their pets for much of the day, so they want to maximize their time with them when they are home. Having them in the bedroom at night is an easy way to do that. And, now, pet owners can find comfort knowing it won't negatively impact their sleep.”

The case against pets being in the bedroom

Although the Mayo Clinic has released studies in favour of having pets in the bedroom, the institute — or more specifically their Sleep Disorders Center — believes that people who have difficulty sleeping should consider keeping their pets out of the room.
In a survey of 300 patients, of which 157 had one or more pets, 53 per cent of pet owners suggested that their sleep was disrupted to some extent on a daily basis. Snoring was also reported in 21 per cent of those with dogs, as well as seven per cent of those with cats.
With these results in mind, John Shepard, the medical director of the Mayo Clinic Sleep Disorders Center, advised: "Every patient has to weigh the advantages and disadvantages of sleeping with pets and make a personal decision about the sleeping arrangements in the household. Some people are very attached to their pets and will tolerate poorer sleep in order to be near them at night."
Meanwhile, Derek Damin, of Kentuckiana Allergy, Asthma & Immunology in Louisville, USA, believes that people who have asthma or obviously pet allergies should refrain from letting their animals on their bed or even in the bedroom. This is “to give your nose a few hours a day to recover”, Dr Damin explained.
However, he was keen to add: "But if you’re not allergic, there’s really no big issue with having a dog in the bed. It’s fine as long as it doesn’t disturb your sleep."
It appears then that so long as there aren’t any issues with allergies, personal preference takes precedence when deciding whether or not to allow pets into the bedroom.

Biking holiday in Colorado USA anyone?

Hi everyone, 

How are you all? 



I'm in holiday planning mode. My husband has decided that we need a big summer holiday. I love planning a holiday at this time of year. Its super cold here and I feel when you have something to look forward to you are more motivated. I know that is how I work. I like having a goal when it comes to fitness and looking and feeling great for a special trip really does that.  

I have done my research and we have picked Colorado. It has the best of everything for us. The mountains, the views and the mountain biking of course. 

Accommodation
I have found the best cabins in ColoradoFinding perfect accommodation is always first on my list. When you plan a biking trip you have to take a lot more in to consideration. First and foremost. Is there enough car parking. We normally do these trips with our friends. We will all have to hire cars to put our bikes in. Is there somewhere to securely store our beloved bikes. Is there enough bathrooms. I know you are thinking why. But there is nothing worse than having to fight over the one bathroom after a long ride in the mountains. Especially if its been a muddy ride. 

The one I have choose is Water House on Main 6310. It has two massive bedroom, two bathrooms. living room and A full kitchen which is awesome after along day. The last thing you want to do is drag yourself out the house to prepare food. Don't get me wrong, we will eat out most nights but after a huge cross country ride you just want to pass out in a comfy bed. The huge bonus of this cabin is it has full access to a fitness center, heated pool, 8 hot tubs and movie theater.

Lucky this is also on the main plaza which has restaurants, shop and bars which is just a stones throw away. 

Flights
It looks like it will be flights from Scotland to London then onward flight to Denver Colorado USA. Then either hire a big shuttle or rental cars. Which will probably be the easiest option due to bike and driving to places we want to see. 

One thing I am concerned about is traveling with our bikes. Our friends did it last year and said it was not that hard. I'm just worried that they bikes will get damaged. I guess I better go and buy a really good bike bag for each of us.  Also I will need to rent a car with a good boot and bike rack.  I know pro riders travel daily with there bikes but it is always a concern. The flights I think we will book will be British airways. I am happy they will look after us and our precious bikes. 

Things to do 
Things I want to do whilst we are in Colorado. 

I want to hike McCullough Gulch. The photos I have seen of this hike looks spectacular. I cant wait to see the water fall and the scenery in Colorado is so different to home that its a must see for me. 

My husband has spotted there is a distillery and brewery. He wants to go to both of them. I love a distally tour here is Scotland so a tour in USA would be awesome. 

There is canyoning near by and my husband has always wanted me to do this as he thinks I will love it. But the Scottish weather even in summer does not make this appealing to me. I think I could give it a try here. 

The city of Denver has always been somewhere I have wanted to go to. The city beside the Rockies mountains. It just sounds wonderful. I know you will be thinking I just want to shop but Not so much. There so much I want to go and see. 

  • The molly brown museum. Molly brown or the unsinkable Molly Brown has been an interest of mine since I watched Titanic years ago. 
  • The money museum of the federal bank. This is just so interesting how they make money. 
  • Forney Museum of Transportation. I want to see all the old car. There is something so magical about old car. 
  • Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum we have just come back form Normandy in France and this museum has old war plane in it as well as lots of other things. 
  • Denver zoo, Where ever I go I like to go to the zoo. I love seeing different animals. 
  • Denver Botanic Gardens These gardens look wonderful  a nice way to waste an afternoon enjoying the gardens. 
I would also like a couple days hanging by the pool and enjoying the resort. I cant wait to eat in Colorado. I love the food and drinks in america. First on the list is a snowball cocktail. 
Image credit
A snowball is the official state drink. 1 measure vodka, 2 measure Fresca and some lime YUM. Get me one of those please. I think my Hubby will like a Colorado Bulldog drink. This is a measure of vodka a measure of Kahlua and a dash of coke. I cant wait to try the sweet food over there either 

Pioneer® Colorado Almond Toffee sounds Delicious too. 


There is so much to see and do in the area I think we will need to book a three week trip to make the most of it. With it being a 15 hour flight from here. We might as well make the most of your time. 



Have you booked a Holiday yet?
