A Little Adrift used to directly chronicle my round the world travels. Now, however, after more than a decade of travel, I present stories, musings, and insights non-linearly. This makes it hard to know where I am and what I’m working on right now!

This is the state of things as of June 2020.

Location & Travel Plans

I live in Barcelona, Spain! I moved here in 2018 and my visa says I can stay here until 2021, so that’s the plan. Barcelona is my homebase, but I still wander the world, just with a place to rest my head in between adventures. More on why I chose Barcelona here.

My 2020 plans look like much of the rest of the world’s travel plans: a lot of time at home. I had hoped to spend a full month in the U.S. catching up with family, but that plan got canceled when Spain entered one of the world’s strictest lockdowns. Now, I am just enjoying Barcelona free from the tourists—something I would have never imagined possible even four months ago.

Projects and Passions

I have doubled down on my remote SEO work since moving to Spain, and these past couple of years have been productive on the professional front—even if that meant sometimes doing less on A Little Adrift. That said, although I did not publish many blogs in 2019 or yet in 2020, I constantly update the website’s useful content. Here are a few of the new things:

  • Country guides. Every time I travel, I round-up my tips and resources, now they’re getting formally laid out and easy to browse. You guys asked for more of these, and they’re popular on the site, so I continue expanding this section. The first dozen are up now; I’d be chuffed if you check them out.
  • Book proposal. I am working on a book proposal and have a goal of reconnecting with the ALA community this year. This is a HUGE focus for me, so please do reach out if you’re coming through town, of if you live in one of the places I am visiting—I love meeting readers!

Need to Get in Touch

Right now, I’m focusing all my of attention on these projects and will say no to other projects. If you’d like to connect on one of these things, read of my contact page or join me on social media:
