My early twenties were spent in jobs specifically chosen for the easy means in which I could travel. My mid-twenties were an “ohmigod, that was so stupid, I am so behind in life” scramble of 80 hour weeks and working my way up the career ladder and no vacations. In my late twenties the travel bug hit again, but my passion for my career stayed and now at 30, I’m starting to find a balance between my love of travel and my love of my career. Plus, my love for my husband, Tom, (who I am happy to say I just married this summer!) who has his own travel and career aspirations. Juggling all three is a challenge, but as I’m learning, it can be done. This blog is created to offer advice for the tug of war between travel and life.
Career, relationships, car payments, mortgages, pets…Trying to fit travel in with life can seem overwhelming. And sometimes cashing it all in and setting off for an around-the-world jaunt just isn’t an option – but the travel bug won’t leave. One Day in a City is about making the most of your travel time, without having to sacrifice careers and relationships. It is packed with tips and stories about how to find the right balance to feed a passion for travel with other passions and responsibilities in life.
One Day in a City covers tips on everything from how to get your boss to approve a multi-week vacation to keeping the peace while traveling with a significant other to how to keep yourself sane in your cubicle when the itch to travel becomes overwhelming.
Also, because limited vacation time and funds often means making the most of a new destination in shorter time, One Day in a City also focuses on “One Day” itineraries for popular locations around the world. In addition, I’ll share some “One Day This Happened” stories from my travels.
When I’m not writing or enjoying the Southern California weather where I live, I spend 40+ hours a week living and breathing online marketing and media for my day job in the travel industry. I am also a regular contributor to the Lost Girls website and other online travel publications.
Hope you enjoy One Day in a City!
