While the original intent of this blog was to provide useful travel resources and tips, I found that I consistently returned to the question of why we travel, what traveling provides us, how we consume as travelers and individuals, and what this ultimately means. As a result, I have shifted the name and focus of this blog to provide a site for mindful travel and existence and I will continue to provide locations, tips, stories, links, and related posts that will seek to provide answers to the above questions. For more on the new name, read the newly added ‘What is the Cold Mountain Collective?’ Page. Thanks for visiting and spreading the word! I also welcome contributions and suggestions.
