My 10-year-old is now in his second year on a competitive travel soccer team.
Last year, when the chance to take a big trip presented itself, I decided to do something “different.”
Twice a week I put on my gi and belt, and grab my notebook and weapons, and head to the dojo.
Running one hundred miles is an exercise in endurance, persistence and patience. It also comes with a price tag.
My standard response to the question “If you could have any superpower, what would it be?” is that I would choose to be fluent in every language.
When I signed up for a work/travel program, I was promised an experience — but I got a nightmare.
As long as I can remember I’ve been pretty obsessed with the ocean.
We paddled ten miles that first day, stopping only for lunch on the rocky shore of a small island.
The meal we experienced was unlike any other dinner we’ve had before, or will have again for a long time.
