The Last 30 Hours – Day 30

So while I was sitting in that little Florence cafe yesterday morning starting to feel like a comfortable and journey-ed backpacker, writing my last blog post and drinking my cappuccino, my knapsack which I had stashed under my chair/beside my foot was stolen.

Introvert versus Extrovert – Day 8

We are now on day 8 of the trip and day 4 here in Naxos. Today I realized something I probably already knew but never reached my total awareness… While I have always been an extrovert – meaning I get my energy from being around other people, I am also a very antsy person. When…… Continue reading Introvert versus Extrovert – Day 8
