About Chang Chang

Look for this carving at the highest peak in Quito, Ecuador

Chang Chang is my interwebz pseudonym – I am quite aware that I share this alias with this amazing 12-year old dancer as well as this rapping duo. One day I’d like to meet these people since we’re obviously on the same awesome brain wavelength.

Interesting fact: in Chinese, “Chang Chang” (pronounced like ch-ahh-ng) actually means “often.”
Often travels. Get it?

So more about me. I’m a 20-something year-old hedonist that grabs life by the huge cajones and shows it off to the world like a prized trophy. Very much like my current bronze trophy, which is proudly on display in Ryder Hall at Northeastern University. Mark Twain couldn’t have said it better: “The gentle reader will never, never know what a consummate ass he can become until he goes abroad.”  That’s pretty much me.

I started this blog as an effort to record my awesome globetrotting adventures, in a half-ass time-traveling sort of format where I “go back in time” through my memories. My first post may explain this concept a bit further:  The Time Traveling Bulldozer. I should note that I may not update this blog very often, but when I do – I promise the stories and tips will be juicy and sweet.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy reading my blog and I hope you learn a little something about solo traveling and adventuring! If you do, please spread the love by sharing it with your friends.  If you have a blog, please feel free to link back to me and I will return the favor, with a  full-fledged high-five. 

Below are some lurk-worthy links if you’re curious to learn more about the real Chang Chang.

    Hi Allison,

    I was wondering if you were interested with a link exchange? My name is Ada and I work for WanderingTrader.com. It’s a travel blog that has been around for a year or so. Do email me at the email address I provided to let me know whether or not you’re interested.

    Thank you!

    Hey Allison,

    It’s me again, Ada from Wandering Trader. We have exchanged links before and I was wondering if you’d be interested to do the same with two more travel blogs that we’re currently working on? We could really help since one of our sites has a PR2.

    Its kinda hard of link all of them one by one! lol

    These are the two sites that we are working on:
    http://travelthemiddleeast.com
    http://www.paramounttravel.com

    Looking forward to hearing from you!

    Cheers,
    Ada
