•••
Ugh, packing... The worst thing about traveling, but a necessary evil. I would like to say that over the years of traveling I have perfected the art of packing the right amount of clothes - never too little, never too much. But I can't. I am still a helpless overpacker and yet manage to leave home without such important items as my toothbrush or travel adapt[...]

Finding time to do the things we love outside of work is an ever-present problem.
