Vulnerability of Travel in Tolka, Nepal
In the days before my flight to Kathmandu, I didn’t know what to think or how to feel. I was a mixture of excitement and a little bit of “oh boy what did I get myself into.” My biggest fear was being overwhelmed by loneliness, having that ache for human friendship that so often haunts us.

Two Months on the Road: What to Pack for a Summer Road Trip
In classic Ohio fashion, it’s a sticky 90 degrees. I’m wandering the aisles of Home Depot, scanning 20 foot shelves for a tiny black ring no bigger than a quarter.
