If you're easily distracted like me, you know that trying to get work done at just any cafe with free WiFi isn't going to cut it. Call me high maintenance, but I need relatively comfortable seating, music that isn't too loud or familiar, quality food and drink options, and an environment where other customers are focused on their laptops and not rushed by the staff. These aren't necessarily my favorite cafes overall, but they are the ones where I've found I'm able to concentrate best and be most productive.
Unfortunately, most of us aren't able to do the kind of frequent international travel featured on many travel blogs. Through Urban Escapist, I hope to meet my audience in the middle. Here, you can read about international travel, but also see where I go locally or by road trip when I want a mini-getaway from the stress and routines of daily work life. I hope this blog inspires you to explore your own city while you're saving up for those big vacations.
