Hi there! I am so glad you found me! My mission is to empower you to #TakeYourTimeOff and explore the world. I started this blog as a way to keep family and friends in the loop when I went on a 3-week trip to Asia in 2011. Although I’ve always enjoyed traveling, it wasn’t until a trip to Peru in 2012 that I started to think about ways to make travel a… Read More

We arrived several hours later than anticipated and by the time we checked in at the hotel, it was 3:30 am and we had to be out to door at 5 am for our day trip to Jaipur.

We started off our Wednesday morning with our first mobile payments interview. As exciting as that was all on its own, it was even better that it happened on the 33rd floor of the Citibank building, in a corner meeting room overlooking the harbor. Not a bad way to start the day!

One thing, however, was pretty clear – the day was just… Read More
