    0
Cairns: The word “Cairns” is a hiking reference to stacks of stones on trails that help guide your way. When I see them on a hike, I instantly think, Phew. I’m not lost. Traveling the world can be overwhelming. You’re in a foreign place, far from home. My hope is that cairns can be used to guide your way, so that when you visit one of...

What Remote Year is all about and why I’m going

    0
Flashback to October 2017. I had been struggling for the last several months at a dead-end job working for someone I didn't get along with.

Looking around the room, I realized just 3 months ago I was...

Diary: Everything I own fits in a suitcase and why the hell did I have so much stuff

    0
I'm moving out of my SF apartment in 2 days and my relationship with "stuff" has become very strange. For the past two weeks, I've had to take a hard look at everything I own and ask myself, "do I really need this?"
