Adventures in Rhode Island: Finding Balance on the Road

Land Acknowledgement: We would like to acknowledge that these adventures were experienced on the traditional lands of the mighty Nahaganset Nation that draws its historic connection to and from the great Narragansett People, and pay our respect to elders both past and present. Learn more about the Narragansett and how they established their existence in this region more than 30,000 years ago.

Life on the road is a continuous journey of exploration and adaptation. Our next destination brought us to the charming state of Rhode Island, a place filled with picturesque landscapes and new experiences. Rhode Island welcomed us with open arms, offering a new landscape to explore and a sense of excitement in the air. It was Michelle’s first time setting foot in the state, and she was instantly captivated by its quaint charm. Join us as we delve into our Rhode Island adventure—a journey that introduced us to the beauty of the state, tested our evening routine, and allowed us to find our groove while working remotely.

The Evening Routine Experiment

As avid travelers before this most recent adventure, we understand the importance of adaptability and finding creative solutions to make life on the road more convenient. During our time in Rhode Island, we decided to test a new evening routine to streamline our daily activities. Our evenings began with a visit to Planet Fitness, where we continued our routine from life in Ocean Pines. The added benefit of having access to their facilities allowed us to shower there, conserving resources in our trailer. After our workout and refreshing shower, we would then prepare a delicious dinner, a ritual that brought us closer together as we shared stories and laughter. However, our late arrival at the gym, longer workout, and pure exhaustion led us to picking up a quick dinner at Chipotle.

Finding Our Remote Work Groove

Balancing work and travel can sometimes be a delicate dance, but it is a challenge we gladly embrace. Rhode Island provided the perfect backdrop for us to find our groove while working remotely. With laptops in hand we set up our workstations: Michelle at the table in the Wandering Crab and Allen outside in our newly  created patio (so Neko could be off leash). The flexibility to choose our office for the day brought a renewed sense of inspiration and productivity. It was during these moments, as we tapped away on our keyboards, that we realized how fortunate we were to have the opportunity to merge work and travel seamlessly.

Life is an Adventure

Rhode Island left an imprint on our hearts as we ventured further into our nomadic lifestyle. From Michelle’s first-time discovery of the state’s beauty to the almost-successful experiment of our evening routine, and the joy of finding our groove while working remotely, this leg of our journey taught us the importance of flexibility and embracing the wonders that each destination has to offer.

So, dear readers, may you too find inspiration in the unexplored corners of this world, adapt to the challenges that come your way, and find your own unique groove in balancing work and travel. And if Rhode Island beckons you with its coastal allure and warm hospitality, let its charm guide your footsteps, leaving you with memories that will forever linger in your heart.
