It’s that time of the year. And if your weekends have looked anything like mine, they’ve been all about graduations and celebrating and inspiring speeches and new chapters. How exciting!
Now I know I may not be the most Continue reading “Because Everyone is Graduating”
There are definitely times when you are traveling that you may want to throw in the towel, to give up, to just have someone to tell you where to go and what to do and not have to do all the footwork for yourself. But that’s not what I’m talking about. Continue reading “When Travel is Exasperating”
At the beginning of the year, like a lot of other people, I had a few goals for 2015. Taking a look back at these, some went pretty well, a few I pushed to complete, and a couple, I just forget about. Which I don’t like, but hope to learn from that and move forward into this next year. Above all, looking back, I am grateful for the experiences and the challenges. And I’m not too worried about the things I didn’t do, because so many amazing things did happen. Continue reading “2015 Resolutions: The Reckoning”

I loved staying 2 blocks from Central Park and 1 block from the Night at the Museum museum. Continue reading “New York City | Part 3”
The time I spent in New York City was full of wandering. We made plans a day at a time, and enjoyed not having a rigid agenda. Most days started with breakfast at a coffee shop in West Village, a Subway ride down to Manhattan, and then lots of walking, shopping and exploring the city that never sleeps! Continue reading “New York City | Part 2”
Travel goal #2 of summer 2014: Go to New York City. This was not so much because I was dying to go as it was that everyone went, I was pretty close, and I wanted to make it happen. I was not expecting to Continue reading “New York City | Part 1”
I set two travel goals for myself last summer. While living and working in a new state was exciting and new, I did not want to settle in and get too comfortable. I wanted to continue looking for opportunities, to keep moving forward. I wanted to continue to accomplish goals and collect memories. Continue reading “Goal: Celebrate July 4th in Washington D.C.”
