Where to goSan Francisco; Portland; New York; Austin
Why to go: To indulge the passions that make you tick (you know, the ones your job doesn't fulfill)
What to bring:  A show and tell spirit, curiosity

No matter how normal we all pretend to be, there are plenty of things we decide not to share with others. Whether your pet project is to knit little monsters or collect civil war memorabilia, you are not alone. Taking a trip to join a community of people who share your passions can be incredibly rewarding and make for some great connections that can lead to projects, relationships, and, occasionally, a new home town.
