Friday Five

Last week, one of my favorite travelers, Kirsten, highlighted by blog on her Friday Five feature, such an honor seeing as I had just taken a long break from writing. Her story made it extra-wonderful to be back! Kirsten also highlights some stunning photography of modern ruins, a fascinating debate on the role of women in society (geared towards us travel-minded folk), my favorite Francophile’s ode to goat cheese, and an essay in defense of the Career Break. Considering I just finished mine, I’m very much in favor of everyone taking a break to see the world!

Kirsten had such kind words for each one of these blogs, including mine. Check it out here: Friday Five
