Traveling mood

Today is my last post on Vagablogging. After nearly two years of being a freelance writer, I’ve gotten to a place where my plate is overfull—and I have to make room.

Thanks to you all for your comments and feedback over the past 22 months. Thanks also go to Rolf, Scott and the Vagablogging contributors for the opportunity to work with such wonderful travelers and writers.

I’ve often said that there’s no such thing as too much work. But even though I have a job I love and wouldn’t change, the key factor is remembering that work/life balance is just as important as it was when I was working in a cubicle. It’s often easier to forget that important element when you’re responsible for your own workload and the mortgage is due, or you’ve got debts from that dream trip.

And while making room for new things sometimes means you get to say goodbye to things you’re happy to get rid of, it also encompasses saying “this is not goodbye, but see you later” to the good experiences as well. It’s what pushes us when we’re traveling to move on to the next destination even when we’re having a good time where we are.

Though it’s been slightly neglected recently, my personal blog, Danger Jill Robinson, will be home to my thoughts on travel as well as existing projects. Stop on by and don’t be a stranger.

Thanks again and ciao for now.
