I have a rule: always look for the best parking spot. There's a chance you might find it. If you don't look, you'll never know.
For the last year Spencer and I have been talking about a big trip to India. This would be mean quitting our jobs and living off our savings for as long as we were able to do so. Maybe a year or two? But a few months ago it occurred to me that I like my job. And maybe...maybe I could work remotely. So I asked. I drove around for a little while looking for that parking spot. Then it opened up, front row, superstar parking! I got the go-ahead to work remotely for a year. India is too far away, so we reworked our plan. We'll be heading to Central America for the next year. Packing up the Subaru, loading Spencer's bike, my pillow, and Monet. Our first destination is San Miguel de Allende, in the Mexican highlands. From there...I don't know, I'm done planning for a little while.
You might be wondering what Spencer will do while I'm working. He'll be working as well, he's picked up a great contract assignment that helps him stay connected to the sustainable energy industry. And when he's not near a computer, life will look a bit like this...
