The World is My Playground

I love to travel because it allows me to learn and to love other cultures, marvel at beautiful landscapes, and value what I have. Travel opens your eyes to ways of life you would never know.

Discover

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.

A Stranger in a Strange Land

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.

The Great Adventure

lets-run-away-together

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.

 

Birthday Thoughts

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.

The Man Cold

the-man-cold

Guess what?! Yesterday my husband woke up with a cold. Not just any cold though, a MAN COLD.

What’s the difference between a cold and a man cold you ask? Well let me tell you.

A cold is what we normally know as a stuffy/runny nose, cough, a few aches.

A man cold is all that plus a whiny, grown man who can’t quite grasp why he feels so awful. He feels like he’s dying and the world is coming to an end because he feels so terrible.

A man cold isn’t fun, especially for wives. You’d think the man was on his death-bed or suffering a horrific illness. Nope just a cold. But, a man cold because you know, men can be such babies.

Salt & Ice Challenge

Just why??? Why do this to yourself?

Kids will put salt and ice on their skin, then see how long they can endure the burn.

It might not sound like salt and ice can do much damage, but together, they can cause great harm.

The salt supercools the ice, making it MUCH colder (1 degree F) than it would be without it (32 degrees F).

Keep an eye out for these strange marks on your children and their friends as well.
