So, I was in San Francisco and Santa Cruz earlier this week. Now I'm in Philadelphia...it's so close, I thought I'd just drop in. Because "close" means 13 hours of travel that starts at 5am, right? ;)
But...you know me. I can't keep my suitcase empty for more than a few weeks, and this time I just kept those suitcase wheels rolling. A few months ago, my friend Shannon told me she wanted to throw a blogger's bash in Philly, so I tacked that onto my itinerary. You might remember that I officially met Shannon back in October...then a month later she and a few other close blog friends flew to the midwest to throw me a surprise bachelorette party. (Click here for legit spazz-tastic footage of that surprise.)
Here's why I love this friendship: Shan and I spent day one of our time in yoga pants, chasing around her son Gabe, (not to be confused with my husband, Gabe) perusing Whole Foods Market, photographing cupcakes and hitting up greasy food joints. That is the stuff forever-friendships are made of.
But I will say this: Blogging while traveling isn't an art I've mastered. Although my airport carry-on laptop bag + camera backpack might lead you to believe I've got it all figured out...don't be fooled. I sooo don't. When I get where I'm going, I want to see people. To do things. Or to drain a day or two napping. Editing photos and stringing together coherent sentences doesn't always fall at the top of my list.
And yet, I'd like it to.
Does anyone blog while traveling regularly? How do you stay committed to capturing + posting quality content, through jet lag, spotty internet connections and on-the-road commitments?
