In this game, as in life, you have to be flexible. Every day demands something different from you, and if you “play” the same way each time, you may not be finding success, because the situation has changed and different tactics are required.
It has been so much fun sharing my adventure with you. If you are just tuning in, this is the 4th and last part of a series where I have described my surprise trip with Pack Up & Go. This post will be about my reflections on the whole experience. This post is not sponsored. […]
Part 3 (of 4) of my Surprise Trip with Pack Up & Go
Hi there. I want to give you the details of one of my craziest adventures yet. I took a surprise trip. What is that? It’s a trip where you don’t know where you are going, what you are doing, where you are staying, and you are fully surprised. Sounds crazy, right? Well, please enjoy the journey with me. This adventure is broken up into 4 parts. First we will discuss how in the world you can book a surprise adventure, and some of the details that went into planning. Part 2 will be about preparing for the trip, backing, and just general feelings. In Part 3 you will learn the location. And Part 4 will be my overall impressions.

Today is May 2, 2020. I’ve been quarantined at home for 6 weeks, along with much of the state and country (USA) due to COVID-19, also called the Corona virus. I could list a laundry list of things I’m not allowed to do anymore, but instead, I want us to take a moment and think of the perspectives of others and what they may be going through. I remember living through 9/11 and it was so surreal, the country was in shock, questioning if it really happened or if we were just delayed in waking up from a horrible dream? Today seems much like movies and novels that were imagined decades ago, and so it does seem surreal, but this is our new reality. . . . Read More
If you remember from my trip to Portugal, I was miserable carrying my 50 lb checked in bag, a carry on, and a backpack along the cobblestone streets of Lisbon as I tried to find my accommodations, then the 3 story hike to the apartment with no one to help me. I had had it. Never again, I promised myself.
So the opportunity presented itself on my trip to Germany. I watched a ton of videos on the best way to fold clothes, packing cubes vs rolling, and what is really necessary. It’s all very fascinating, but all very custom to the type of lifestyle that you live. What I didn’t find were a lot of people that lived like me: . . . Read More
This book was phenomenal. Noah took a somber true life experience and turned it into a comical reflection. I literally laughed out loud, got visibly angry, and cried throughout this book. I stayed up reading at times when I should have gone to bed because I wanted to find out what happened next.
