AK Monthly Recap: May 2017

Quick housekeeping note: The Paradise Pack is only on sale for a few more days. If you want to learn how to work online and travel the world, this is one of the best resources on the web, not to mention the best deal. Read more about it here. This month I returned to my roots […]

AK Monthly Recap: April 2017

It’s so strange that when I look back at this month, one random little memory comes to mind. I was standing in the CVS on Broadway and 93rd St., fresh from a training session at the gym, picking up a bottle of coconut water, wondering whether I should pay my trainer more for analyzing my love life […]

AK Monthly Recap: March 2017

You know what nobody talks about? That first gust of air when you come back from a tropical vacation in the middle of winter. I stepped off the plane and nearly wept. I knew it would be cold, how could it not be cold, but I didn’t expect it would be that bad. Shivering like […]

AK Monthly Recap: February 2017

After a quiet January, I got back to the road in February with two trips that were out of the norm for me. A trip to Florida and a cruise — two very typical American vacations, but not the usual kind of trip I take. Even so, I had a blast on both trips! Best of […]

AK Monthly Recap: January 2017

Once again, I went a full month without leaving New York! I barely even left Manhattan, venturing to Brooklyn a total of twice. The first time I did that, in April of last year, I was shocked and horrified at myself. This time, I welcomed it! The past few months were much busier than I anticipated (a six-week […]

AK Monthly Recap: December 2016

And just like that, 2016 is over. It couldn’t have come soon enough. I didn’t buy into the “Fuck 2016” memes until the election in November, and then I was fully on board. Talk about an awful year. Now that it’s 2017, even though it’s just an arbitrary difference, I feel like a lot of […]

AK Monthly Recap: October 2016

Do you remember last month, when I told you I had a trip coming up to a destination I couldn’t name just yet? At the time of publication, I was deep in contract negotiations and couldn’t say anything yet. But if you’ve been following me on social media, you know I went to Western Australia this […]

AK Monthly Recap: September 2016

On one day this month, I woke up on a vineyard in rural southwest Wales and went to sleep at dawn in an offbeat city in eastern Slovakia. I think it’s fair to say this will never happen again! This month was so much more hectic than I expected it to be. I planned out a 50/50 month: 15 […]

AK Monthly Recap: July 2016

Finally, after seven months stateside, I broke out my worn navy passport and traveled abroad once again! I needed a break, but I still can’t believe it lasted seven months. This month was about South Africa. My friend Beth and I spent just over two weeks in the country, my third visit and her first. In addition […]

AK Monthly Recap: June 2016

June 2016 will forever be known as the month that I saw Hamilton. Really, everything else fades to black and white when measured up against Hamilton. I can’t remember the last time a performance affected me this much! But beyond that, there was a lot of fun in New York and a bit beyond. Another quiet month. Another […]
