Travel Month: May 2016

Personal + Travel

This month was pretty quiet regarding travel, but I didn't mind as it gave me a chance to get ahead on work and enjoy the great weather in Vilnius. In Vilnius, we enjoyed the reopening of Open Kitchen and eating out at a few new restaurants. I also spent a fair bit of time at several parks and playgrounds now that Baby ISO is mobile.

My mother-in-law also visited for two weeks, which was another chance for me to get ahead on some work and blogging things. It was great to have her help!

Blog + Freelance

This month I've put up my first reader survey. Please click here to take my reader survey to help guide my future content. I'd really appreciate it and owe you a coffee if we are ever in the same city at the same time!

On the blog, I've shared a few posts about Luxembourg, which is a great city for a weekend break and several tasty meals, a packing guide, and a massive guide to Druskininkai, Lithuania.

As far as freelancing goes, I've started a new video program with TopEdit, where I teach about writing and publishing scientific articles. I'm not entirely comfortable on camera, but hopefully I'll improve over time. Freelancing has been a bit slow for science editing, but botanists are usually in the field at this time so this dip in work is normal for me. Regarding travel editing, I've just edited more than 500 articles for Trip101 and published 10 articles on Trip101 as well. I'm looking forward to many, many more!

Looking Forward To

In June, J's friend from college, his wife, and their 1 year old are coming for a visit. Together, we'll take a road trip from Vilnius to Tallinn and then a ferry to Helsinki. It should be a great trip and I'm looking forward to sharing all about it later in the summer. If you have any recommendations for Helsinki I'd love to hear them!

Later in June, we'll be heading back to the US for a month-long trip. I'm really looking forward to seeing family and friends, spending some time at the beach, and trying out a few new restaurants. Summer break really snuck up on me this year!
