Travel Month - September 2014

Wednesday, October 1, 2014



Each month I like to reflect upon my monthly travel and explorations in my current city. I love remembering past trips and enjoy looking ahead to future plans. These monthly reflections help me to do just that.

September has been an exciting month. I began a new job, which is the first job I've had since completing my PhD. (That is 5 years since I've had what most people consider a 'real' job) The day before my birthday there was a fire in the apartment building in front of us, which certainly caused some early morning chaos (no one was hurt but everything still smells of barbecue).

I recently contributed a post to Travelettes, which was published on Sunday September 28! Check it out :)  I also edited an exciting book that was written by a fellow blogger. I cannot wait to see the final published copy! You may also have noticed that I'm now offering editing services. If you are interested email me for details!

I'm still re-capping our summer adventures in China and the US, and I held a giveaway of my favorite Chinese goodies. If you missed any of my recent posts you can catch up using the links below!

I'm looking forward to the month of October, which should bring more teaching responsibilities, a publication or two, and some exciting trips. This weekend I'm traveling to Prague - if you have any tips I would love to hear them! Then, later in October I'll be heading to Copenhagen and Malmo (again I'd love suggestions for what to do, see, and eat!). On the second Friday of October I'll also be starting a monthly series entitled, Creative Lithuania. In preparation for this monthly series I've been enjoying everything Lithuania has to offer (including pop-up restaurants and a beer marathon!).

How was your September? What do you have planned for October?

I'm linking up with Belinda for her Life is Good monthly link-up.
