As the great C.S. Lewis wrote, “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”

girls gone global, ggg, dear alyneAt the age of 35, I decided it was time to start living life on my terms, so I quit my 11-yr career as a teacher to be a full-time travel/human interest story blogger!

This past weekend, I moved all my belongings into storage to officially become a gypsy nomad. 😁

This was the scariest decision of my life, even scarier than getting divorced 8 years ago! 😳

So I chilled at my mom’s house in small town East Texas, trying to figure out my game plan for what comes next. I’ve traveled to 22 countries around the world, but I felt a little overwhelmed with making the decision of where to start my journey.

Eventually, I packed up my dog and my car, and ventured out on a month-long road trip with my best bud Kingston! We drove to places like South Carolina, DC, Mexico and Alabama, where we stayed in a 100+ year old farmhouse!

I don’t envision myself as one of those gypsy nomads that packs up a suitcase, hops on a plane, and doesn’t come back “home” for 2-3 years. I am far too close to my family and my doggie Kingston to just set sail and not look back! But that’s ok, because this is my journey, and the great thing is that I get to design what it looks like based on what makes ME happy! 😀
