Workshifting While in Prague

Posted by on 11 August 2011

Oh, Prague, how I love thee. Because relatively few houses and sites were destroyed in World War II, much of its old-world charm remains.

A lot has happened in the past couple weeks since my initial post: Happy Trails. We’ve driven through 15 states and traveled almost 3,700 miles, from Santa Rosa, CA, to Atlanta, GA, and we are now heading north to Boston, MA. It’s been an amazing adventure so far. Some of the highlights include the snowcapped […]

Workshifting in Cowboy Boots

Posted by on 31 May 2011

I sat down recently for coffee with a man who quickly informed me that he once hiked along the Great Wall in a pair of cowboy boots. I followed his gaze to his feet where two travel-worn boots were cooling beneath the table. I knew right then that this wasn’t going to be any ordinary […]

Traveling Light with Technology

Posted by on 19 May 2011

I don’t travel a whole lot. Well, definitely not as much as some of you. But as I was getting ready for a trip to Chicago last week, I pondered my options for what type of technology I’d bring with me. Do I leave the laptop at home and go entirely mobile? Could I get […]
