Photo Friday: Floating Market in Indonesia
Friday, July 20th, 2012

Today’s Photo Friday captures the Floating Market in Banjarmasin, Kalimantan, Indonesia. It was taken by second time career breaker and former Meet, Plan, Go! host Lisa Niver Rajna, who writes:

Getting up early to see the floating market was well worth it. The colors, the food, the homes along the edge of the water. I loved the traffic of the boats and the community scene–very different than going to market in Los Angeles! During our year away in 2008-2009, we were in Indonesia twice each time for a month. We went from Malaysian Borneo (Sipadan) and traveled along the coast of Kalimantan to Banjarmasin. We had some great adventures. We left this month (July 2012) for career break TWO!

Photo Friday: Warsaw, Poland
Friday, June 22nd, 2012

Today’s Photo Friday of Warsaw, Poland was submitted by Basic Training member Val Bromann.

“I had a hard time adjusting to life on the road. A week in and I wasn’t getting a rhythm for it, I was crying every day, I wasn’t sure if this was really what I wanted anymore. It was a rainy night in Warsaw and I sat on a bench with my umbrella and a terrible piece of pizza, just staring. When the rain cleared, a rainbow appeared over the Royal Castle. I thought at that moment ‘how many other people in this world are seeing this right now?‘ It’s sometimes, the little things, that help you appreciate what you’re doing, and help you power through the hard times.”

Val is still on the road and you can read more about her journey on her blog.

Have you had a hard time adjusting to long-term travel? How did you get through it?
