Update: Your Favorite Travelholic Bought a House

Yep, you read that right.  I bought a house!  That’s part of the reason I haven’t been updating this blog; I’ve been too busy house-hunting, signing escrow paperwork, buying furniture, decorating and throwing housewarming parties (yes, that’s parties, plural).

The other reason I’ve neglected to update this blog is because I’ve been working two jobs in addition to writing my weekly column (have you been following it?  I hope so!).  I’ve also written these two gems for Boots ‘N All.

Anyway, what about you?  What, fellow travelholics, have you been up to these past months?  Go on any cool adventures?

  2. […] Though some of my students have commented that they think the American style of pushing the child out of the nest while they’re still in their teens is selfish and cold, I happen to like it. I think having to be financial responsible at a young age forces you to work harder. Plus, I love having my own house. […]
