The Journey Begins

Before I take off, lots of adulting in preparation for this adventure. Thankfully, the last trips I made to prepare for my move and travel abroad included visits to some great places, and time with wonderful people. In early May I headed back to the East Coast (Washington, DC, and New York City) for final visits to my firm’s offices and to say goodbye to fabulous colleagues and friends. I have had a wonderful 9 years as a lawyer, but taking the advice a friend offered last year, I’m running towards an even bigger goal (not running away from my current career or firm): a love of travel and seeing the world. After wrapping up life on the East Coast, I headed back home to Southern California, ever so briefly, then began a cross-country road trip with my mom and co-pilot in life (my 13.5 year old rescue dog, Charli) from Sacramento, CA, to Cape Girardeau, MO. Photos posted here are of these trips. Next posts will be the trip abroad where my first stop is London then onto Spain!
