Geography of Travel 12.15

October and November got away from me. Or rather, I got away in October and November! I visited two new cities and two new countries. Two weeks away in two months in the middle of a very busy time at my day job left me with quite a bit of catch up work to do, both at work and here […]

Geography of Travel 8.15

I’m only sharing 3 Geography of Travel links because the month of August was a busy time for me! Even though I was furiously preparing for the upcoming AmeriCorps service year, I used up a lot of my left over vacation days, too. Some highlights: I spent a couple days in on the Outer Cape — Wellfleet, Truro & Provincetown, […]
