When I tell people that I travel full-time, one of the commonest questions is this: Where’s the best place?
It’s a pretty impossible question to answer. So I tell people: If you love food, go to Italy. If you want an artistic, welcoming, warm community of people, head to Ghent, Belgium. And if you want landscapes that will take your breath away, head to Botswana’s Okavongo Delta or the Swiss Alps.
Which is why it makes perfect sense that when I decided to take a whole, luxurious month off from client projects, to simply hike and write (that book proposal) and mull over what comes next for my life, I chose the Alps. The lush, imposing, fresh, and perfect Alps.
By the time you read this, I’ll be there. Probably having some fondue after a long day of hiking. Or spending hours upon hours sitting in a field and just staring at the cliffs. Or snuggled up in my tent with Luna.
It’s going to be amazing.
And it’s also going to be a bit off-the-grid. Which means that even though I’ll still be posting on the blog (scheduling posts ahead of time), it might take me a little while to respond to comments, emails, Facebook messages, etc. My apologies in advance for any delays. Sometimes we all just need to take a break, focus less on our online networks, and stare long and hard at the world around us.
So, for the whole month of September, this is where you can imagine me: hiking straight up into the Alps with a small backpack, a happy dog, and hopefully some wonderful new perspectives on what comes next.
Where are you going for your next vacation?
