An Epic Place to Wake Up

Originally uploaded by lizpurdy05

Here is a list of every city, town, or place I spent the night during the year 2009:

(Note: I’d love to take credit for this idea, but it was in fact my friend Annie who posted her list of cities on her blog first. And she originally got it from our mutual friend Andrew. And I traveled so much in 2009 that I couldn’t pass up such a cool idea, so thanks Ferg!)

Needless to say, not many nights were spent in “my” bed. My sleeping bag and I have bonded a lot and I must say that one of my new favorite items is my silk sleep sack, which is possibly one of the greatest inventions ever. I slept in it every night in Zambia and couldn’t have been more pleased (except for the night I woke up with a cockroach in my bed, but I can hardly blame the silk sleep sack for such an event!). Now that I am at Jubilee, I do have my own bed that I can count on sleeping in every night. It is in a delightful little loft in my room, which I am absolutely in love with and tend to talk about it somewhat obsessively on a regular basis. It is so cozy and is probably one of the greatest ways to utilize space. It even has a skylight in it that allows me to wake up to bright sunshine every morning. Are you convinced that my loft is amazing yet? In fact, I think I’ll go crawl up there right now and read. Night night.
