    I am a podcast junkie. I usually listen to 1-2 podcasts in the morning as I am waking up, and when I drive anywhere. I have been collecting a lot of podcast episodes, and I want to share them with you. Categorized in many different ways, I have a lot of options, so don't be worried there isn't one for you!

    Money on My Mind: Saving Money While Traveling | Annie

    February was a good month! I spent a lot of time with family over Chinese New Year, eating at home and playing mahjong. I even won some money! The rest of the month was pretty uneventful until the end of the month when I went on a long weekend trip down south to Chiayi and Tainan. Posts about those cities will come out soon! In the meantime, take a look at my expenses this month and share some things I did to save money on my travels.

    Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami

    One of the biggest changes from this road trip is my willingness to check out museums. I used to view museums as a waste of time cause I didn't have the patience to really look at the art. Now, I take the time to understand the artist's point of view and my interpretation of their work. This post is about Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami, which has made my shortlist of great museums.

    Photo Diary: Wynwood Walls

    One of my favorite places in Miami is Wynwood cause of all the graffiti art. I am always in awe of people who can draw because I cannot, but I can certainly appreciate those who can. I was not blogging the last time I was in Wynwood in 2016, so this is snapshot of Wynwood in 2019.

    My February 2019 challenge was to walk more, at least 10-20 minutes every day. I used to walk at least 3 miles every day back in college, but now with a car and on this road trip, I get lazy or too tired to stretch my legs. I walked the most this month out of all the other months on my road trip, and I took photos to share!

    January Challenge: Meditation

    Our “12 Goals in 12 Months” challenge was inspired by The Travel Hack, so thanks Monica! Although we won’t be tackling the same goals every month, we decided to do the first one together. We chose meditation. Both of us have tried meditation before, but we could not get into it. This time we tried different things like different apps and setting intentions. Check out the video we filmed and see how we fared!

    On the Road: Finding Balance

    One of the most frequent questions I get about being a modern nomad is, “How do you balance everything?” I’ve sat on this topic for several months because I wanted to see if there was A Few Right Answers on finding and maintaining balance. There isn’t. Instead, I’m going to share my stories and what I’ve learned about balance.
