A few years ago I dreamed of being a travel blogger and a life of constantly being somewhere new that I could write about, photograph, and share with you. I bought the URL slowtravelnyc with the idea that this would develop into a Rick Steve’s style travel empire, tv shows, guidebooks, a tour business, podcast, etc. All platforms would feature local destinations accessible by public transportation and bike or foot. The mission would be transforming how I travel into something sustainable, ecologically, financially and relationship wise without giving up the healing and mind altering adventures I had in other countries and that I still dream of. That goal still sounds like a pretty good idea to me.
Inspired to simplify (meaning: totally overwhelmed by modern life) I recently combined all the content from the travel site back into this super blog (nearly ten years and over 800 posts!) And deleted the other site.
Summer gives me time for travel and for getting up early to write before work. With my main commitments for the summer out of the way already I have cleared my way to more focus and adventure.
