Actually, the best gift you could have given her was a lifetime of adventures…
Alice in Wonderland
In the past 10 years I’ve backpacked through Europe, North, Central and South America. Over the same course of time I’ve taken residence in: Michigan, California, Montana, Hawaii, Florida, Costa Rica and Spain. Sure, some of those stints lasted no longer than 6 months- regardless, you could say I’m a bit of a wanderer.
Throughout my travels I’m occasionally asked, “What are you running from?” After giving this question considerable thought, I can confidently reply,
“I’m running to something.”
The thing is, I’ve had a glorious childhood, made exceptional friends and experienced unwavering love and support- but wanderlust it’s concerned with any of that.
Wandering has nothing to do with forgetting the past, dropping old friends and finding new love. It’s about self-exploration, adventure, making new connections and boldly moving forward into the unknown.
