What I am doing right now
I’m living in Istanbul, Turkey, still. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all global travel has completely stopped. I had so much amazing travel planned (even partially paid for) for the next 4-6 months. All of it on hold, and I fear for a long time.
It sucks I will not be traveling for a long time, but hey, at least I accomplished what I set out to do! I lived abroad for five years and traveled to every continent on planet Earth. Many of which I’ve been to more than once. So all in all, I am fortunate I traveled when I did!
Still, I miss traveling, flying, and the rush of being in a new and exciting place. I realized I flew about 25 times in the last year. That is an average of one flight every two weeks! I miss flying, oddly enough.
For now, I will continue to hunker down here in Istanbul and wait out this pandemic and for things to slowly return to normal and open up again.
I launched a fun little side project: Random Daily Art
It’s a site that has a new random piece of art on it and emails it to you. Just a fun little project to brighten peoples day.
I’ve gone full keto. I’ve switched from a high carb diet to a high fat / low carb diet. I’m feeling much better now! I definitely recommend it.
What I am excited about
- Studying a lot to start a new big venture later this year. (More on that later)
- Seeing more of Turkey when things start to open up.
- Reading a lot more.
