I may need to take a trip

🌍 Living abroad helps you develop a clearer sense of self. “When living abroad, our data found that people’s exposure to novel cultural values and norms prompts them to repeatedly engage with their own values and beliefs, which are then either discarded or strengthened.” That’s certainly been my experience, tho I do wonder if I’ve discarded more values than strengthened.

🛫 CommonPass may be the future of verifying the health status of travellers. I can certainly see something like this being part of the travel landscape, hopefully much sooner than later.

📦 From the office of holy crap, there’s gotta be a good reason: FedEx now operates a round trip between SAN and TIJ. Every time I’ve driven over the border at Tijuana, it’s been a complete pain in the ass, but it must be even worse than ever for FedEx to start using a 757 to transport cargo 18 miles.

📸 My friend Rick Lepage has been encouraging me to buy more photo books, so when I saw news of the new Accidentally Wes Anderson book based on the instagram account of the same name, I immediately ordered it. "inspired by a community of more than one million adventurers, Accidentally Wes Anderson tells the stories behind more than 200 of the most beautiful, idiosyncratic, and interesting places on Earth." Approved by Wes Anderson himself. I can’t wait.
