Faithful readers! I am back!
It has taken me an entire year to sort myself out since my last post and I am happy to report that things have finally fallen in to place such that I can start traveling — and thus blogging — once again!
Over the past 12 months, as I searched for and found a new home, a new job, basically a new life, I wrestled a bit with what I was going to do with this blog. I didn’t relish the idea of doing any more whining to you all about the difficulties in crashing back down to earth after a transcendent experience. I certainly didn’t (and still don’t and never will) want to talk about politics here, and so instead I opted for radio silence.
However! Now that I am comfortably settled in my new home city of Chicago and gainfully employed in a role where it appears I will not be penalized for actually using my vacation days, I am once again in a position to indulge my whims! Hopefully there are one or two of you out there who are still interested in hearing about them, so if that is you, stay tuned to this space! I am planning to shift the focus from my own personal journey into a more practical guide for how to keep traveling even when you don’t have the luxury of walking away from your job for a year or two. In that spirit, I have a few things on the horizon that I look forward to sharing with you.
Next up: President’s Day weekend in Panama!
