The Great Escape: Month 61 Roundup thumbnail

Time to dive back into roundups! Since I’m working my way through my black hole of content from August of 2016 to April of 2017, that means we’ve got roundups to catch up on as well. This one will be pretty short and sweet, with Months 62 + 63 are coming out next week. Apologies for…

The Great Escape: Month 51 Roundup thumbnail

From the Caribbean back to the East Coast and out West again — it was a month on the move. I started and ended this month with two big trips, cushioned in the middle by a nice stretch of downtime in which to catch my breath. It was a pretty good balance, and while I had…

Ah, New York state in December, how I’ve missed you…. um, mostly. I’m absolutely loving getting into the real holiday spirit, spending some quality time with family and friends, and bustling around my favorite city and my beloved hometown.
