I’m a 40 somethin’ girl who is sick and tired of the mundane hustle and bustle of this thing we call life. Electric word life, it means forever and that’s a mighty long time but I’m here to tell you. Oh sorry, I got sidetracked there for a second.
So I’m RUNNING AWAY FROM HOME!!! (minus the hobo stick over my shoulder)
That’s right…..I have sold everything I own to travel the world.
I’ve reached a point in my life where, although I do well for myself financially, I’m tired of living the daily routine and craziness of working too much and not living life enough. I’ve decided that living in a house full of things just isn’t enough. Although I’ve worked hard to be where I am and I live comfortably with pretty much anything I want within reason, I feel as though I haven’t accomplished anything meaningful in life. I don’t want another ten years to flash by and realize I still haven’t done anything to speak of, I don’t want any regrets.
I want fun, adventure and memories! You know the cliche’, you only live once.
So follow my progress as I work my way to the road and then follow my journey while I blog and photo journal my adventures.
When does my new life begin?
If it was up to me, I’d quit my job today and hit the road immediately. But since I don’t yet have plans of how I will earn money while traveling, I need save up a substantial savings to allow me to travel for a bit while I figure out a way to sustain income.
So it’s time to get serious, save every penny I can, and get ready to begin my new life.
Where am I going to go?
My initial plan is to begin in Thailand, but this could change once I’m ready to travel. I would like to fly into Bangkok and work my way up north to Chiang Mai. But from there, I have no idea where my travels will take me.
I would like to travel abroad for at least a year and then come back home to the US and buy an RV and travel around the country forever.
