For the most part, I've been on a 5+ year hiatus. The exceptions have been short-lived and intermittent. I traveled a couple times in 2018 and 2019 before the world devolved into a state of media-induced mass hysteria.
Much of what's holding me back stems from my current and long-lasting aversion to the intolerant, virtue-signaling and politically correct fashion industry and its woke gatekeepers. The lack of realness and the poor attitudes of people toward freedom of thought and creative expression have been a buzzkill.
I'm perpetually on the lookout for a city with a good balance of what I desire in terms of not only work but lifestyle.
