22 countries, US$1,460 in airfare. It was a good year for travel. I’ve sacrificed a lot for this luxury of mobility, and I’m still far from my ideal lifestyle, but the long work hours and lonely nights have been cancelled out by the experiences gained, the memories made. In 2014 I hope to arc some red lines across the empty spaces, including a new continent and train trip with my parents (number one on their bucket list). If all goes to plan I’ll travel more, not less, but in a way more conducive to my entrepreneurial goals: staying in short-term rentals with wifi. Come what may, I’ll do my best to make 2014 blog-worthy.
In 2014 I’d also like this blog to be more interactive. I don’t check analytics because I have nothing to sell. Success equals comments. In this respect, I’ve failed (I’m amazed that nobody asks how to fly for free). If you have questions, ask away. I want to help you have experiences similar to those I write about here.
