Travelling Kid Interview 4

Could you give some background on yourself?

I was brought into this world almost twenty years ago as a female in a valley of Appalachia, “Wild and Wonderful” West Virginia. Where people are prideful in their suffering and the illusion of economic opportunity lies among abandoned coal mining sites. Industry destroys our lands and separates us against each other, all for the sake of survival. We are the outcast state in one of supposed unity. Many grow up to flee this place looking on it as a black hole, some never leave, and some of us have to take leaves of absences for the sake of our sanity but are eventually always drawn back.

On Fear

I sound like Chomsky, haha… Maybe not. When I tell people I hitch hiked through America or Europe, the first question is almost always certainly, ‘were you scared?’ It’s a genuine question and I understand where it comes from, but for the most part, no. I wasn’t scared. Last summer, yes I was scared. It was my first time hitch hiking, so there was a lot of ideas floating around my head, but this summer I was more excited than nervous when I set out. Of course there were some anxieties beforehand, but as soon as I stood next to the interstate in Maryland, they all washed away and I was roaring to go. I was on the road again, and life was good.

What’s in My Bag?

Visual aid of what I brought.

Visual aid of what I brought.

Decided to do something a little different, as I’m sure some people often wonder what I take travelling. Added to this, I had the lightest backpack among my friends which I thought was pretty amusing. These guys travel for life, I get that, meaning they need to have certain things I could do without. But still, fuck me, their packs must break their backs. Here is a non-prejudiced list of what I carried around on my adventure, after learning heavily from my first expedition abroad on what to bring and what to omit: Continue reading
