I like the discovery part of it… I like to explore new things, new places, new views, new people, new everything. There are many ways to explore new things, but traveling is the most satisfactory as it is the most comprehensive way as it encompasses many elements from views to people to foods etc.
The lands of the earth belong to us all. It is only when you go there and see the different ways in which people live that you may be ‘foreign’. Feeling like a stranger is just a feeling you get when you’re somewhere new.
My husband and I decided to quit our jobs, rent out our house and move to Mexico for a year. My husband, myself and 2 cats are leaving in less than two weeks. After the year is up we may decide to stay in Mexico or travel on to another destination. I have decided to write about my journey and my new life adventure.
I have given most of my clothes to my local homeless shelter, sold or junked most of my possessions, except for a few totes of important things that I have put into storage, and sold 2 out of 3 vehicles. Travel documents are purchased, house is almost empty except for furnishings (I am renting the house furnished). I am excited.
Today is my birthday. One more year and I’ll be in a new decade.
My husband gave me this stuff as one of my gifts. I am not sure how I feel about it. Is he trying to tell me something? Do I need anti-aging lotions? I’ll tell myself he knows I like Biotherm products and he just didn’t realise what exactly he was giving me.
I don’t feel older. I don’t feel like a grownup. People treat me like an adult. I’m expected to act like an adult and make reasonable decisions…and most of the time I do, but a piece of that insecure, awkward teenager I used to be still lives inside me. I don’t know when I will feel like I’m really a grownup…maybe never. And that’s okay.
I leave today for 18 days vacation with my husband. We rented a house on the tiny island of Saba for 2 weeks and the are travelling to Sint Maarten for 4 nights at a beach resort. I’m looking forward to peace, quiet, eco-adventure and scuba diving.
