So the Story Begins…

I am an American globetrotter blessed enough to have just completed a master’s degree in Spain, then immediately land some (short-term) consulting work which I can do remotely.

My first thought: Stay in Spain and travel on the weekends!

My second thought: Why stay in Spain when I can work from anywhere?

So here I am.  I packed 3 months worth of life into a single suitcase, and left everything else in the care of one of my lovely friends back in Spain.  This morning I took a one-way flight to Paris, where I have an airbnb for the next 2 weeks.  After that, who knows?!?  The only plan is to go somewhere interesting, meet new people, try new things, and stay for as long as I need to in order to do all of it while still working.  This blog will chronicle my journey, in which I am drifting through the world, but far from aimless.

There’s no denying that it will be hard: I am an introvert and a control freak.  Despite those obstacles, I appreciate new places and experiences, and care for people deeply.  Hopefully throwing myself in headfirst is enough; but maybe (just maybe) my alter-ego Marilyn will come out to help me be more spontaneous, open, and adventurous.

Wish me luck!
