I want to get another year of experience before I travel but I just wanted to see what you ended up doing?? I also will be traveling alone but I love meeting new people and seeing new places. If you have any suggestions they would be much appreciated!

I'll also be traveling solo but it would be nice to have a travel buddy. Keep in touch and maybe I'll see ya on the road

I'm currently working at Hahnemann University Hospital in Philly and I would love to continue working on a heme/onc floor but I was talking with recruiters and there aren't a lot of onc opportunities. I'm thinking of moving out to Cali instead of doing the whole travel thing now.

My present concern involves angst over having to give up one of my pets to hit the road after signing a contract. I travel already with two lilttle dogs, but I accumulated another pet, and it has caused me some problems in transportation, because it has a cage. I am growing progressively more negative about traveling for me, personally....probably getting old and crotchety....but this is really bothering me. I was told that I would be blackballed within this entire state if I canceled this contract.
