Big Life From mid-January until last weekend I was on the road 53 days, something like 41,000 miles. Sitting next to someone on a plane or having lunch with a friend, inevitably I’ll hear, “So you travel a lot. That must be a lot of fun, right?” I don’t think anyone thinks traveling a lot…… Continue reading Big Life, Small Life
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=piF5ikeveHA Watch the first 6-7 minutes of this presentation from Rick Steves, I think it’ll challenge your perceptions of what it means… …to travel. The “why” we need to travel beyond our borders is super important. …to share what we know to be true. I’ve watched and loved Rick Steves show on PBS for years, I’d heard…… Continue reading Travel as a Political Act
Last year, I traveled about 25% of the days. This year, I have more individual trips but fewer miles and days away from home because of a strategic change in how I travel. (More quick trips, less stringing together 2-3 trips into a really long trip.) Between now and June 1st I have 10 trips…… Continue reading Oh no. I’m becoming one of those people
The next few months will find me in a bunch of places, I’d love to meet-up if it works. Here’s where I’ll be and how we can connect. February 5th – Grace Chapel – Boston Area Next Wednesday I’m spending the afternoon with the staff team at Grace Chapel, then leading a parent/teenager event on…… Continue reading Spring Travel Schedule

Specifically, it’s so important for us to spend time as a couple away from the kids. Since we don’t have…… Continue reading Two Days in Joshua Tree
Saturday begins an 8 week sprint to Thanksgiving. Between now and then I’ll be away from home roughly 50% of the time, generally gone Thursday-Sunday. It’s a time of year my partner in crime is affectionately calling the insanity. Every single thing I’m doing I’m excited about. It’s wonderfully insane. So where am I going?…… Continue reading Where in the world is Adam?
In the lead-up to my trip to Zimbabwe this week, here are 10 things I’m excited about.
I just turned on my computer for the first time in 7 days. It still feels a bit funky. My fingers are stretching to familiar places but typing feels totally odd. Yesterday, I woke up to cuddle a freezing Jackson back to sleep. Today, he woke up in his crib to a warm bowl of…… Continue reading Back From the Brink
This video has me all pumped to head up to Yosemite. The countdown is on! 2 weeks.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q6UUwnK8AMs One of the commitments that I made for 2012 is to rest better. I know, that sounds silly. But with all the stress and craziness of 2011 I forgot to take more than a few sporadic days off. That’s not healthy or sustainable. With that in mind, and Kristen’s parents in town for the week,…… Continue reading Relaxing in Rosarito
