I think there’s a common misconception about travel and the internet is partly to blame. The biggest distinction I try to make is that travel is not always a vacation. It CAN be a vacation, but it isn’t always. Travel can be warm, relaxing and rejuvenating but it can also be cold, hectic and exhausting. It also comes with it’s fair share of problems. The thing is, you really have to roll with the punches if you want to make travel a part of your life. Part of rolling with the punches is taking what is thrown at you gracefully and moving on. Take the time Nashville tried to kill me, for example. I took a Friday off work and headed to Nashville for a three day weekend. By late Friday night, I was in the hospital.
