Shrugged — a lot.

While travelling, a sense of humour is important. So are snacks and good company, as well as an awesome playlist.* Sometimes I imagine heading to parts unknown — driving in my car until I run out of cash or am stopped by the ocean. I’ll pick up hitchhikers along the way. Maya Angelou will ride shotgun and choose the music, while in the back seat Mary Magdalene will take selfies with Frida Kahlo and Persephone. We’ll leave a trail of Hot Rod and Twizzlers wrappers, empty cans of Pringles Originals and Diet Coke, and du Maurier cigarette butts in our wake.
