... you can research your adventures and plan them in advance, but there is something utterly captivating about not knowing what will happen and embracing the unknown
Adventure Is Closer Than You Think
You may be wondering, what does all of this have to do with travel? I mean, this is supposed to be a travel blog, right? Much of the country stayed home this year on a day that is renowned for packed roadways, crowded airports, and huge family gatherings.
Wanderlust, Moving and A World of Change
A friend from high school recently moved to a new home. It was one of several she’s made in recent years. She and I are very alike that way. In the past eight years I have had six homes.

In fact, I write lists all the time. My problem is I stick those lists somewhere then I either can't find them… Continue reading Friends, lists and going with the flow
