I often have people ask me how I managed to travel so much and the quick answer is “I had a great job”. The longer answer entails being at a job long enough to get two weeks of vacation, being laid off from same job and given 3 months’ severance and then landing a UK-based job (ie, a lot of holiday/vacation time). Then I moved to San Francisco where I had some time to myself before landing a job. However, once the job kicked in, my riding time fell off. Then I moved to the East Coast and my riding time (and desire) really fell off.
Through a very fortunate series of events, my husband and I were able to move to Switzerland. It took us some time get settled into our new lives, new jobs and new motorcycles. But now that we’re here, we’re working on exploring our new home. I’ve added a European map (albeit an outdated one) and will work hard to cover it with squiggly red lines in the coming years.
