I’ve made a habit out of living “mini-lives.” It’s like living your normal life, just in a different city.

It lets you get a taste of living in another location, and all of the personal growth that comes along with new experiences, without having to take a bunch of time off of work, or ending your trip feeling like you missed out on something. You get to experience a new culture far more in-depth than when bouncing from place-to-place.
