Me with the Shanghai skyline, slightly less 30 than today.

Me with the Shanghai skyline, slightly less 30 than today.

Tomorrow is my 30th birthday!

Want to make me REALLY, REALLY happy with a free gift? Here’s what I most desire:

1. Show some love to my two websites, AroundTheWorldL.com and TeachingTraveling.com by: reading, commenting on, and reposting/sharing/emailing articles, “Liking” the Facebook pages (currently near 1,400 fans!) and using the “suggest to friends” button, “Stumbling” articles (if you’re advanced like that), and generally bringing as many eyes as possible to these 500+ articles I spend so much time and passion creating.

(On a happy side note, several articles, including the one about a certain vegetarian eating pig tails and other intense meats in China have gone viral recently with over 2,000 views in a day! Let’s have more of that fame, pretty please.)

Doesn't Shanghai have amazing buildings?

2. Between now and October 18, tell EVERYONE you know about the “Meet, Plan, Go!” career-break travel conference which is happening on 10/18/11 in 17 cities around North America. This is an event where people who dream of traveling for longer than a month can meet travel experts to help make their extended travel dreams come true. I coordinate the Boston MPG event (click here for the page to get tickets!) and I can tell you: this event changes lives.

By reposting this link about “Meet, Plan, Go!” on your Facebook wall or emailing it to friends, you are not only giving me a very kind birthday gift, but you could be taking the action that at last makes someone’s stymied travel dreams come true.

Very reasonable gift wishes, right? :) Thanks for another amazing year of reading, writing, learning, teaching, meeting, sharing ideas, and traveling. With your help, may there be many more!

Tempted to click another article? Do it...

  1. I’m kind of late but HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

  2. Here I am, taking my time to write another comment. Happy birthday again. Hope you loved it!

  3. First off I was wondering how your birthday went? And if you got any of your presents? ahaha I’d also like to ask if you know any of the other teachers that traveled other places on your other website. Also, is it hard to coordinate the Boston MPG event and do you feel happy when you help people reach their dreams ?

    • It was great, thanks! I did get gifts I loved, including the ones I asked for here :) Indeed, I do know other traveling teachers who I feature on http://www.TeachingTraveling.com . Some of them I have met in person and some just online, but they’re all great! As for MPG, it is very hard to coordinate and SO WONDERFUL to help people reach their travel dreams!

  5. Although China has amazing buildings, they REALLY cause pollution.

    I’m also turning 30 this month (Oct 28th) – you’ll have to let me know how it is :P Best wishes on your special day!

    • Thanks, Samuel! It’s great so far, what with an epic trip through Newport and Tiverton, RI and a long weekend just for me! :) You’ll love it.

  8. Happy Birthday!!! Enjoy your big day and revel in everything you have accomplished these last 30 years!
