Where is Amy?

Greetings from Milwaukee!

I’m attending a blogging workshop/conference called BlogHouse – ran by other top travel bloggers from Navigate Media Group. BlogHouse has been a chockful of information on well – blogging but we’re also on a “mini” press trip so there’s been plenty of attractions and activities to see and do – not to mention the copious amounts of delicious Brew city beer that needs to be consumed.

To do some backtracking of my whereabouts the past few months:

+ Hawaii for almost three months – basking in the sun and sand working on my tan and enjoying hikes with epic views

+ Taiwan for almost two weeks…exploring Taipei and the surrounding areas. Gotta tell you about the time we explored an abandoned mining complex!

+ Galapagos Islands: I went with G Adventures, camping and hiking with giant tortoises and pelicans for 10 days

Afterwards, I’m heading to….San Francisco!

I’m excited to announce that I’m switching my (day) job. I left my job at Mixed In Key and now working at GitHub HQ! Yes, I’m still doing software testing and yes, I’m still in tech. Just not DJ music software anymore but software that helps…people build software…together. Did your brain just explode?

For those of you wondering – will I still travel & be a digital nomad?

Absolutely.

GitHub is actually a remote-friendly company and about 60% the entire team is remote. I’m based in San Francisco indefinitely – at least for the time being. It’s going to be relaxing parking myself in a place for longer than 2-3 months at a time. The only gripe I have is the weather but people keep telling me that, “you get used to it.” I’m not sure about that but we’ll see…

My cribs, digs, pad situation?
I refuse to sign a year lease (at least for now) on a place in the city so I’m going to sublease/short-term rooms until I get sick of that and resign to a one year lease or travel again. I know, I know – I’ve got commitment issues. At least, I still have my car. 😀 It’ll be fun to bounce around the different neighborhoods anyway and see where I’d like to be on a longer-term basis.
