Hunting for Morel Mushrooms When the trees are sporting their new green leaves and the ground is warm and damp, it is spring in Minnesota and it is time to get into the woods and look for morel mushrooms.

I still can’t believe something that delicious had gone under my radar for so many years! Once you get a taste of morels there is no going back. They are delicious. I know many people don’t like mushrooms, but I am willing

At age 21, I left the United States and embraced a fully nomadic existence. I’d traveled before, but always with plans of returning home. This time, I had a one way ticket. Six years have passed, and I’ve never really looked back. I began traveling from ecolodge to ecolodge, trading my skills for room and board. It was transient, unstable, and beautiful, but when the opportunity arose to take a job as an editor for an online mindful media platform, I welcomed the (relative) financial sustainability.
