The Evolving World of a Location Independent Entrepreneur

March 24, 2014 | Entrepreneurship, Entrepreneurship & Business, Traveling | by TofflerN

Big thanks to Dan Andrews (@TropicalMBA) over at Tropical MBA for letting me re-post his super insightful comments about the evolving landscape of what it means, and the advantages of, being a location independent entrepreneur, particularly in Asia. I loved the way he articulated the changes and advantages of living and running your business overseas.  Succinct, to the […]

My Passport is Feeling Neglected

October 4, 2012 | Entrepreneurship, Traveling, Wellness | by TofflerN

After the year that 2011 was, where I didn’t stay in any place longer than 4 months and I often didn’t know where I’d call home the next month or even the next week, 2012 has been a HUGE contrast.  I haven’t left the US since I returned in early January this year. ‘Home’ has […]

Solo v. Organized Travel

June 27, 2011 | Tourism, Traveling | by TofflerN

As I get ready to head on a new series adventures, starting with a month travel around Europe, I’ve realized I’ve spent an inordinate amount of time in the planning and getting ready. I’ve spent time researching trains, flights, buses, ferries, booking apartments on AirBnB, figuring out how the RailnFly card works in Frankfurt when […]

Booking flights between random and far destinations

April 17, 2011 | Tourism, Traveling | by TofflerN

Once I decided on my plan for jumping from Asia to Europe and then back to Asia this summer, the next step is to figure out flights.  Hangzhou or just Shanghai to Europe (Germany) is easy, but after that not so much. Trying to find flights between such random places as Madrid to Bali, Indonesia […]

Europe! And my 2011 plans until November

March 28, 2011 | Tourism, Traveling, Wellness | by TofflerN

While my last post summarized 2010 and only hinted at 2011, now I’m ready to start explaining what’s going on this year. As you can see on my new health and herbs blog, the first 6 months of this year have been and will be (almost) entirely focused on studying Traditional Chinese Medicine.  I’ve decided […]

Worlds Best City Views

September 9, 2009 | Tourism, Traveling | by TofflerN

I love cities, and I especially love them at night when they’re lit up and sparkling, dazzling my eye with their flickering lights and myriad of shapes.  So whenever I’m in one of those spectacular cities with the amazing view, I make a point to find the best vantage point in the city and go […]

Pingyao Ancient Town

Pingyao 平遥, located in Shanxi 山西 Province (not Shaanxi 陕西, where Xi’an and the Terracotta Warriors are), has been on my list of ‘must-see’ places in China ever since the list began. (Haerbin Ice Festival & Huangshan-Yellow Mountain are still on it).  So with a ready traveling companion and I already making the trip to […]

Just Another Hangzhou Weekend

Went to Hangzhou last weekend and had a late evening arrival Friday Saturday morning started off with walks in the hills around the Longjing Tea Village.  Longjing is special kind of green tea that is grown in Hangzhou, of which the West Lake variety is said to be the best.  It is famous as a […]

4 Days in Seoul

May 20, 2009 | Tourism, Traveling | by TofflerN

For the May 1st International Labour Day holiday, myself and 2 friends traveled to Seoul, South Korea, to a friend from college who lives there and another friend who came up for the weekend from Hong Kong.  It was also a nice escape from a holiday weekend in China.  Seoul is a clean, quiet alternative […]

Thailand: Islands and Bangkok

May 11, 2009 | Tourism, Traveling | by TofflerN

While I’m by no means an expert on Thailand, my 3 trips there, including most recently in April, seem to make me the chosen person to ask about where to go, where to say, what to see, and where to shop.  I’ve decided to make my life more efficient and type up the info one […]

Traveling again

March 30, 2009 | Tourism, Traveling | by TofflerN

True to form, I’m going out of town again, this Thursday!  Many people already tell me I travel too much, with my November trip to Guangxi and Vietnam, Christmas/New Years trip back to the States, Chinese New Year’s trip to India, and all the traveling I did in 2007 and into early 2008.  Hey, I’m […]
