Trip to Europe, forthcoming.

Marseille, France

I’m not sure yet how exactly I want this blog to turn out. I want it to be useful for people like me who are interested in getting more out of travel, but maybe aren’t sure where to start. I also want it to be a place where good writing happens. Don’t get me wrong – I’m a fan of many of the points and miles blogs out there, but sometimes I want art, too.

For now, I’m going to post whatever, so bear with me as this blog, much like my life, figures itself out as it goes along.

I’m leaving in a couple of weeks, flying from Chicago O’Hare to Brussels Airport with a short layover in Copenhagen. I’ll be gone for three months, and mostly in Marseille, France. I’ve been to Marseille before and I liked it (more on why later), so I’m going back.

Other places I’d like to go on this trip:

Lisbon, Portugal
Dubrovnik, Croatia
Athens+, Greece
Istanbul+, Turkey
Barcelona+, Spain
Algiers, Algeria
Tangier+, Morocco

The figuring-out will come.

Till later,
