Guest Blog: “Everyday Sabbatical” by Chris Murchison

Buenos Aires. Six weeks. Private Spanish lessons. Tango. Empanadas. Iguazu Falls: all the trappings of an exotic travel adventure. Which it was, but my time in Argentina was much more than just a vacation. Which, as we now know, is extremely important for us. This sojourn was intentional, thoughtfully planned and carefully curated. After a stressful [...]
