Gear Post 2020

Merry Christmas! As seems to be my pattern lately I keep pushing the gear post later and later. Sorry about that! It happens because I get excited about gear and always end up testing a bunch of things right near the end. One thing I’m very excited about this year is that I was able… Continue reading Gear Post 2020

How I Use Airplane Time

When I asked for blog posts at my last Budapest event, one person asked how I spend my time on airplanes. At first I didn’t think I had all that much to say about it, but as I thought about it I realized that airplane time is actually quite critical, especially when you travel a… Continue reading How I Use Airplane Time

Solo Scuba

This post isn’t suggesting that you should solo scuba dive. Scuba diving has risks and I don’t know anything about you.

How to Enjoy Museums

I used to be neutral, or maybe slightly negative on museums. There was something pleasant about being in them, but I didn’t really know what I was supposed to do there, and always felt like I was doing it wrong. And it turned out I was doing them wrong. I was introduced to a guy… Continue reading How to Enjoy Museums

Extended Travel in Relationships

Maintaining a healthy relationship while traveling can be hard, but it doesn’t have to be. Like anything, there are pros and cons, and by mitigating the cons and focusing on the pros, you can even make it a good thing. As someone who travels for the majority of the year, I have a lot of… Continue reading Extended Travel in Relationships
