I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year, a year that I hope will include some adventurous and culturally rewarding travel to places far and wide. Your loyalty and continued readership have made this first year of “OtherGuysDime” a rousing success. Its 73 posts were viewed almost ten thousand times–the equivalent of thirty fully loaded Boeing 747s–and over 100 people have contributed comments, thoughts, and opinions. These numbers far exceeded my wildest expectations when I first began posting last March.
In the coming days and weeks I will offer up more travel stories and helpful advice on planning your working vacations, short-term sabbaticals, and career breaks, and I invite you to continue reading, commenting, and sharing your ideas. Happy and safe travels–and please send some email when you arrive.
