>> leaving on a jet plane.


I’ve dropped a few hints that a big adventure is looming on my horizon and I couldn’t be more excited to share the news…

The MASON is going to Europe!

In early October I’ll be flying to England to meet Elyse for a 10-week Euroadventure of epic proportions.  With London as our home base, we’ll be travelling to post-industrial cities across Europe to research, gather images, and make contacts for our next issue and soon-to-be launched online portal.

I have so much to do before now and takeoff, including moving my apartment into storage and finding a catsitter. Thinking about it all makes my head buzz; but, mostly I just can’t wait for this wild, ridiculous, crazy, exhilarating tilt-a-whirl of travel and creativity to get underway.

That’s all I’m going to say for now, as I’m fighting a migraine and want to hide under the covers, but I wanted to check-in with this promised update. You can look forward to many wanderlusty, stressed-excited-overwhelmed posts in the near future, and of course I’ll be blogging our experiences every step of the way. I can’t wait to share this journey as it unfolds…

What adventures are on your horizon? Big or small, I’d love to hear!
