A year ago, I set off an a big experiment to see if I could work abroad for a couple months. Looking back, I've learned a lot since then.
If you've ever been interested in visiting the Alhambra, you should know that Washington Irving doesn't do it justice.
I didn't know what to expect when I went to visit Toledo. Honestly, the city blew me away.
I love to walk. So now that I'm in Madrid, I'm tracking how many steps I take in a day.
Late January is probably not the best time to visit New York City.
I've done my fair share of solo traveling over the years. Here's my take on why you should give it a shot.
For some reason, many of us fear under-packing on trips. We don't want to leave behind something super important we might just need. Actually, overpacking is what will kill you.
I fly to New York on Saturday, and thence onward to Madrid. Trying to make some tough choices about what books to bring along.
I've spent the last few days out in Illinois, visiting my brother's family and meeting my newest niece. Since they moved out, I've made the trip a half dozen times, always on my own, usually for a weekend stay. There are a few things that always strike me about this trip, which I will enumerate for lack of anything else to write about.
During my time abroad, I've often felt anxious and out of place while trying to be open to new, foreign experiences. It gets better with practice.
