I had a hard time with today’s #MotivationalMonday. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not for lack of travel dreams. It’s a combination, of sorts, of too many and the persistent dread that it may never happen. As you can probably … Continue reading
I have a confession to make: I have absolutely no idea what to write about. It’s not like I’m, oh I don’t know, traveling. I can’t appeal to your similar love of travel (or at least I assuming you love … Continue reading
Despite it’s not-so worldly status, Napa has, for a long time, been on my travel to do list. I thought that I was going to be able to scratch it off the list this year, but it’s looking less and … Continue reading
** Update 1/15/13: Less than a week later, I received the full value promised for all three cards, which I mailed in and were quickly verified. The payments were issued promptly via Paypal and are now sitting happily in my savings account. No complaints what so ever!

In many ways, 2013 was a year of adventure and a year of change. I made it a goal to travel more, and travel I did. Now, however, it’s December, and I find myself at more of a loss more … Continue reading
I’m stuck in a permanent state of wanderlust. In the past year, I’ve left my old job – the root of much unhappiness and discontent — for a new one and managed to travel to a number of far off … Continue reading
Writing hasn’t been happening much of late — in case you couldn’t tell. Neither has saving. I have, however, been traveling. Traveling for work, but traveling nonetheless. This week, I spent four days in Pennsylvania and Jersey for a client’s … Continue reading
It’s safe to say that I am probably the happiest I have been in the last few months. Sure, I still have a few qualms about my job. And yes, I’m still broke, but I’m happy. It’s amazing what a … Continue reading
