{"Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better."  //  Albert Einstein}

Happy Links:

  • Remember Lincoln Logs? I loved them as a youngster. Anthology Magazine posted a little tidbit from their latest issue and I'm thinking it might be time to splurge on an annual subscription.
  • Speaking of our younger years, I just happened to catch a tweet yesterday from Kelly Beall of Design Crush about Camp Grounded. It's like the summer camp I never attended as a child, but for adults. Yes, please!
  • Have you read this post over on Oh Joy? It's such a great note to all of the creative beings out there who are struggling to figure out just where they fit.

Wrap it Up:

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Featured: Wand'rly Magazine + An Interview with the Team Behind CoolWorks.com

attachment-5188fba7e4b0921527f9821d

The latest issue of Wand'rly Magazine is now live and I am thrilled to have contributed an editorial feature about seasonal jobs for travelers.

I had the pleasure of interviewing a few members of the team behind CoolWorks.com, which is an online space dedicated to matching seasonal and full-time work in incredible places with those seeking a very different idea of what "9 to 5" entails.

Here's an excerpt:

"The website, which launched in the early days of the internet back in 1995, has long been a central hub for temporary and seasonal work opportunities in unique, interesting locations across the United States.

[...] The opportunities on CoolWorks.com run the gamut, from jobs in and around national and state parks to opportunities with adventure travel operators and first class lodging establishments. Short-term jobs or volunteer opportunities can last between six weeks to several months and the site often lists full-time, permanent positions, which are snapped up just as quickly as the listings for temporary work."

You can read the full article here.

For those who are new to Wand'rly Magazine, it is a great online resource for travelers looking for tips, travelogues and practical information. While the magazine's focus is on the full-time wanderer, I find much of the information useful in both the fixed and travel sides of life. Whether you're planning a short trip or building up the courage to leave your fixed life behind, be sure to check out the current and past issues for inspiration.
