When my thoughts regarding everyday life became too much for me to keep bundled in my head, I decided to let them pour out onto this blog for all of the world to access.

My name is Sarah Mastroni and I am a 27-year old writer and college student from Connecticut. My daily and long-term goals are not limited to learning the art in varied lifestyles, but also staying happy and unbound by the constraints of stress and expectation. The main constant in my life is that inspiration never ceases to pass me by. I am affected by something everyday; driven to learn more about people through universal mediums of raw self-expression such as music, food, conversation and fashion.

My concept of travel is that of most young people with little cash and a hunger for the world. While I enjoy turbulent flights and going through Customs as much as the next person, I oftentimes prefer to explore great semi-local destinations. A spontaneous road trip with friends can heal, just as a great planned dinner with great company does. On the cusp of New York City and a few hours from Boston, my little New England home is the perfect epicenter for weekend getaways up the coast to New Hampshire or down to the beach in New Jersey- eating and drinking too much the entire time.

sarah On The Go is intended to let me clear my mind; to inform and entertain by using the knowledge I gather from exploring outside these four walls to give you a taste of the beauty I discover. 

As the great Anthony Bourdain once said,

“Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life and travel leaves marks on you.”

  1. Hey Sarah! I see that you stopped by my blog for a visit. I have checked out your blog,too and love your explanation as to why you write. I relate to that — it helps me to keep my head on straight!! I also see that you have a sledge hammer. LOL We all need tools to get the jobs done. Just be careful with that thing! Happy New Year!

  2. This Page is very Well Written…

    Thanks for Following The Dark Globe, you may also enjoy my Personal Blog The Written Word, as well as my New Dark Xperience Blog, which I started a few days ago.

    Both Links can be found on my Gravatar, as I don’t wanta Link up your About Page, lol

    Happy New Years Sarah (was watchen Bourdain last night, lol)


  3. Hey Sarah, thanks for following my blog, you’re blog is really interesting. Thanks for the heads up on Day Zero I’m gonna investigate further! Oh and Happy New Year!

  4. Your attitude about travel is on target. Traveling locally or to a spot not too far from where you live can be very rewarding. I’ve done that and traveled abroad. Each has something to offer. What you bring to the experience – and what you take away from it – matters most.
    I enjoy your blog. Thank you for stopping by mine.

  5. hey sarah hope you are good,went through your blog, found it quite interesting, i saw you visited my blog too, maybe we can exchange some writing ideas/themes sometime. keep up the good writing :) thanks for the follow

    #`Thank a lot Sarah, for drop in to Blog Kami Dari Semua :)

  7. Heeeeeeyy There Sarah!! Thank you for subscribing.. love your blog and your writing skills.. inspiring :) Look forward to reading more and one day traveling too… your neck of the woods sounds very interesting… LOVE IT!!

  8. Very true… always remember, there’s a very old Latin saying, which says – “Success takes one away from home”. No one on earth living in his/her own town, became world famous. Alexander, Napoleon, and all other great personalities had pushed the boundaries further to be icons and legends. So yes… make sure you do travel as much as possible. Peace xx Subhasish

    You write a great blog and we both agree about Anthony Bourdain! Please excuse the lack of humour in my own latest blog post; tough topic to be funny about. Thanks for following!


  17. Hi Sarah! Thanks for following Glamour Rant! I definitely relate to your need to write. What’s life if it’s not filled with words? I look forward to seeing more from sarah on the go!

  18. Sarah, well still curious but far from young! But a big thanks for your ‘follow’ of Learning from Dogs and please feel free to comment or contribute whenever you would like to. Paul

    Best Regards,

    P.S. I would like to read more of your blog on the New England area, as that area is largely the one I have not traveled yet! :P

  21. Love the Bourdain quote, and love the premise of talking about “semi-local” destinations! I definitely need to write about Los Angeles as soon as I finish my year in Chile. Thanks for the follow!

  22. Hi Sarah! Thanks for the likes and the follow!

  23. Thanks for stopping by graphicmusings. You have some great artwork here-both in word and picture. Keep it up!

  24. Not sure how you happened by my site since yours seems so spunky compared to mine (with the flowers and hummingbirds and stuff). The Walking Dead maybe? I like your logo. How did you design it?

    1. I am absolutely obsessed with The Walking Dead! Don’t let the flowers and birds fool you… I’m a tough chick! :) My logo was made by a friend, I have absolutely no idea how he did it!

  25. Thank you for following my blog! I love your about page and have to say that as a fellow New England girl I feel the same way about travel. Following back!

  27. Hey Sarah, that’s a pretty inspirational ‘about’ post… like your blog, got some good banter… look forward to hearing more of what you got to say!

  28. Hi Sarah,

    Firstly thanks for stopping by the blog for my novel ‘Roppongi.’
    See everything at the website: http://www.roppongithenovel.com

    Having looked through your blog, I thought I’d make a gift to you of one of my favourite quotes.

    “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of earth all one’s lifetime.”
    Mark Twain

    Safe travels Sarah – have a wonderful 2012 – we sure are living in interesting times.


  29. Hi gal on mission! Thanks for subscribing to my blog. And I LOVE how your site looks, dainty and yet too girly.

  31. thanks for the follow. you work pretty hard on yer blog there, it does not go unnoticed.
    here are 2 of my favorite quotes: (i’m sure you’re dying to know)
    1. “A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” ~ Churchill

    2. “Get out of my way because I’m 25 and I still act like I’m ten! I don’t learn from my mistakes I make them again and again and again and again and again…!”
    (you’re 25 so it fits) ~ 25!, Bomb the Music Industry!

    you’re welcome.

    Sarah V

  35. I like a lot of the words you’ve used…pleasure, unbound, learn , self expression, , spontaneous, exploring….. for a wordsmith and ruin-bagger like myself with “little cash and a hunger for the world” they’re like mothers milk…….write on Sarah……you may be on to something :)

  42. Sounds like you are really present with your life and that’s great! I too am from CT, though I prefer to live on the west coast…. I do remember what a perfect location CT was. I miss mini road trips to Vermont, Rhode Island and New Hampshire…

  50. Nice post. I learn one thing way more difficult on distinct blogs everyday. It’s reaching to in the least times be stimulating to browse content from alternative writers and follow a trifle one thing from their store. I’d like better to build use of some exploitation the content on my journal whether or not you do not mind. Naturally i am going to give you with a link on your web journal.

  53. Like most, after I checked out your blog I literally fell in love with it. Thanks for liking my post on family, by the way… And your intro, is perfect, like I know exactly what your talking about, about being young and wanting to travel. I’m excited to read more of your posts.

  54. Hey, Sarah–You signed up for our blog–thanks!–and I thought I’d check you out. You’re a funny talented writer! Put it into a book! Nice to see someone the age of our kids with interesting common cultural references. LOST IN TRANSLATION, we agree, is killer. Ken
