by Kim December 16, 2014

4 Years

by Kim December 3, 2014

I started So Many Places four years ago this month, 1.5 years before I left my home in Portland, Oregon to set out to see the world. The real journey began when I started this blog. Because starting this blog was the way I declared, “I’m doing this,” even though I had no idea how the hell I was going to do it.

It’s hard to believe that we’re closing in on a month in Sayulita already. Our time here has slowed to an easy pace as we work from our apartment during the day and explore the streets of Sayulita after dark. Let me show you around the neighborhood.

My Writing Desk (AKA All the Crap I Dragged to Mexico)

by Kim November 9, 2014

I spend most of my waking hours at my writing desk. These five months in Mexico are more of a working retreat, a time to focus on writing and building a sustainable income, than a vacation.

Hello from Sayulita, Mexico

by Kim November 2, 2014

Our first glimpse of Sayulita was promising. We passed yoga studios, smoothie stands, tiny tiendas and one lonely burro tied to a tree.

Welcome to the New Age

by Kim October 5, 2014

It’s because of our friends Judd and Amanda that we became fixated on the idea of buying crystals in the southwestern U.S.

Hiking Half Dome

by Kim October 1, 2014

We hadn’t planned on hiking Half Dome but then I saw it with my own eyes, rising 5,000 feet above the Yosemite Valley, and thought, I have to go up there!

And our next adventure is…

by Kim September 23, 2014

As the months ticked by we knew we had to make a decision about the future. Would we keep traveling? Would we settle down again? We both agreed that we wanted to keep going but not in the a-new-place-every-week kind of way that we’ve been going for the past seven months.

What I learned by walking the Camino de Santiago

by Kim September 21, 2014

I wanted to then, and I still want to now, answer the question: What did I learn? But it’s a hard question to answer.

Seven months in bear country and I’m still breathing

Life on Fire: A celebration of my first creative child

by Kim September 10, 2014

It’s been one year since I published my first book Life on Fire. Sharing it with the world was one of the scariest things I’ve ever done. That terrible voice inside, the negative, nagging one, said: Who do you think you are?

Photos of Glacier National Park

by Kim September 2, 2014

We’ve just recently wrapped up two weeks in Montana. It is, hands down, one of our favorite states. Despite the rain, Montana has charmed us with her rugged mountains, sweeping valleys, ancient glaciers, moody skies and, yes, even with her grizzly bears.

In another life

by Kim August 24, 2014

When I was younger I was intrigued by the people I’d meet who would use the phrase, In another life I was… when offering a piece of their personal history.
