Where I’ve Been Katowice The month began in Katowice where I stayed for a few days while waiting for a flight.

One Week Turns to Five in New Smyrna Beach, Florida

We arrived to New Smyrna Beach in thanks to a dinner invitation from a YouTube fan. The marina had fabulous reviews, so we had booked a week at their very reasonable rates of $7.50/ft.

Considering how bags are handled by airline staff, generally overstuffed, and often too heavy to avoid fees, you would hope someone would make a bag that’s light and durable – not to mention sleek and efficient. Osprey Sojourn Wheeled Luggage (25-Inch/60 Liter, Metal Grey) The Osprey Sojourn 60L is a piece of luggage that, if you’ll let me be cliche for a moment, actually seems like it was designed by travelers, for other…
