I have a neighbor from university who travels around the world while she works remotely.
She has been on every single continent besides Antarctica and has made friends from all sorts of countries.
Southeast Asia garnered much of her attention while the two of us were in her mid 20s. Another university neighbor was a travel agent in Thailand and hooked him up with an amazing trip for a cheap price. She was in Thailand for so long that she really l received the language and was communicating fairly well with locals before she had to return to the country when one of her parents became sick. Most recently she decided to visit myself and others in my cabin in Albuquerque in Victory Hills north of the Albuquerque International Sunport, our local airport. It’s self-explanatory to find my up-to-date home once you get off the plane and into a rental vehicle. My neighbor announced her intentions to visit myself and others in Albuquerque after I told him that NM legalized recreational cannabis back in June of 2021. Prior to then, you had to have a medical marijuana card from either NM or another state to legally purchase cannabis at a dispensary here. There were also nominal taxes on all medical marijuana purchases, but these have been removed now that there is a 12% tax on all recreational cannabis sales. My neighbor didn’t mind paying the taxes, so the two of us stopped at cannabis stores all over the neighborhood from West Mesa to Sandia Heights. There’s a fantastic location in Singing Arrow if you don’t mind braving the traffic on Interstate 40 while the two of us were in rush fifth.
