As we began talking, I asked Nick how long he had been at the salon. He said that he was there for about a year, but took about 6 months off to travel. I laughed and told him that he was too young to be taking a sabbatical already. He stared at me as he had no idea what a sabbatical was. I explained it to him and then inquired, "So, six months. That's a lot of time. Where did you travel?" I knew a whole slew of fabulous places was likely to follow. Having done some traveling myself, I always find others' adventures and travel stories fascinating. "So where did you go?"
His answer: "New Jersey and Queens."
