I’m a big fan of using TripIt to keep all of my travel plans in one handy spot on my Android.

Very, very geeky cool.

JANUARY 1, 2014. That’s the date I’ve set for myself to be 100% location independent and debt-free. Since returning from New Zealand in 2010, I’ve been floating from day to day and trip to trip, without any concrete direction; no long term goals. Maybe this is the start of a mid-life crises or something, but over this past summer I realized that I needed to give myself and my life direction, that I wasn’t as happy with things as I could be. I’ve been following other bloggers who’ve made the leap to being location independant, to being able to travel and work from anywhere and it strikes me that there isn’t any reason whatsoever that I couldn’t live this way too. So, here we go. This is what I want to do and how I want to get ‘er done:

I definitely didn’t think that was covered in wall murals, friendly monsters and robots! The morning I left to come home, I wandered around downtown taking pictures, getting so lost in time that I almost missed my shuttlebus to the airport!
