Adventure Diary: 27th Birthday Weekend Wanderings

Adventure Diary: 27th Birthday Weekend Wanderings

  As we kick off the new year, I have been debating on how exactly I want to organize my blog going forward. In 2017, I tended to not really follow a plan and just post sporadically as ideas came to me. However, the initial reason I started the blog was to chronicle my adventures and that ultimately got lost. So I’ve decided to create a series called Adventure Diary where I can basically do a quick journal entry of…

The Art of the Long Weekend

The Art of the Long Weekend

If you are a 9-5er like me, you are probably limited to a set amount of vacation days per year. This doesn’t mean that you can’t go anywhere though.
