I am so happy to be here writing this blog, not just for me, but for all of you wanderers who just can’t wander as you would like. Life happens, whether you had a family, or you’ve never been the type of person who felt comfortable with travel, even though you would love to. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t live vicariously through pictures and words. I’ve had to do just that for the better part of my life. It’s not that I didn’t want to travel, trust me. It’s just that I only ever traveled within the states, and only dreamt of going overseas to a foreign country where I would have the most magical trip. For me, it was life as well, that stopped me from going. There was always a reason for me not to go, and they just kept adding up, one by one.
The truth is, there’s only a few select people who’ve been in my life that know the real me, the one who embraced the gypsy life and the things I’ve only dreamt of doing, things more people in the world dream of doing, than you would think, but never do. It’s not that I don’t open up per say, but it’s more of people not really asking the right questions I suppose, to get to know me for my soul, who I truly am. In a nutshell, I’m the girl behind the screen, the one who taught herself about life, and love, and the world. The girl who dreams of places and people, but never sees them. As I said, not because I didn’t want to, but because life stopped from doing so, and partly because I was afraid. Afraid of the world, afraid of leaving those I loved, and afraid that others would think my dreams were ridiculous.
Well, someday you have to stop being afraid and be as strong as you know you really are. I have two beautiful children whom I love more than words could express, and I want to be more for them. I want to teach them, and encourage them, and let them know that there is a whole world beyond our own, beyond our home. I feel that life is partly wasted if you don’t ask questions, don’t explore, and don’t embrace your strength. But that doesn’t apply to everyone, we’re all different, we all strive for different paths, but some of us, the travelers, those who want to but can’t, we know that there’s more to living our lives than just being comfortable with it, we embrace the change, the adventures, even the misadventures. Ciao my lovelies, until next time when I bring you the most wondrous adventures, without ever having to leave your home.
