    I’d love to meet you there, Megan. What do you say?

    Bleib Treu = be true. You are such an example of being true to your dreams that I am sure you will be in Berlin before you know it.

    Megan, I’m traveling to Berlin for a week with my almost 2-year-old daughter inJanuary. I know there is much to see in the city but most people talk about the nightlife and the clubs, etc – I can’t seem to find any good resources on things to do with a toddler. What are you looking forward to doing with Alice? Any recommendations?

  • Sarah

    We have just arrived in New Zealand for a 3 month stay, it’s taken a lot of planning with two young kids but its an adventure. And we think will be worth all the saving and planning. I hope you make your dream come true soon.

  • Ally

    Would love to read a post about your plans are to make this happen.
    Aka Logistics.
    I think a lot of us, would LOVE to live abroad, but the logisitcs on things like health insurance, visas, jobs!, renting your home etc make it seem impossible.
    Anyways, Congrats and I hope it becomes a reality for you very soon!

      Exactly, Ally! How do we shift everything over to a new place? Or manage things back home from a distance? Moving locally is enough of a hassle that it’s tough to image doing that on a bigger scale. Maybe the fantastic Chris Guillebeau has tips on this sort of thing?

Five things I’ve learned as a full-time Airbnb host

1. Airbnb is actually about entrepreneurship (which can kind of sneak up on you).
When I started hosting, it was truly out of desperation because I needed a way to fund the new company I was building. When I made my first few hundred dollars in a month with seemingly little effort, I realized that by taking hosting more seriously I could avoid what I thought was the inevitability of needing a part-time job (in addition to my 60-hour/week at Hello Holiday plus parenting my daughter). As my personal finances were dwindling, I could never have stomached the idea that starting a second business would be the solution, which is why the possibility of so much hosting success surprised me.

when you want to work as remotely as possible: traveling for business

A: Travel is important to me because it helps my morale. It recharges my spirit. Every month or two? I like to get away as often as I can…probably sometimes to the annoyance of my business partner and coworkers. It’s always important to me to find something to work on wherever I go–a reason to make it worth my while from a business perspective–but there are some places I go just to ONLY work.

OOTD: Office Hours

This summer instead of having our 4-year-old Alice go to her school’s summer program, Dave and I decided to get a nanny. Her name is Kylie and she’s been WONDERFUL over the past two months! I really wish we could keep her all year and just have Alice in this hybrid coparenting-learning-field tripping-coming to the office situation, but I’m not sure I’m up for all the coordination it would take. I’m definitely considering it because I’ve never seen Alice so engaged and happy–she plays all day, does art and science camps and activities all over town, and gets lots of time outside, which leads to nice early bedtimes. Smile. I love having her at work after 4 every day and all day on Fridays.

Letter from a reader: Changes and consistency

I am a long time reader of your blog and have seen it through its various incarnations. I wondered if you might find inspiration one day to discuss the changes, i.e., the changes in you. For example (and these are purely from memory, so I may very well be misremembering things or just plain getting things wrong):
