3 days and counting…

Welcome all to my travel blog, I am excited for you to join me on this adventure! After a solid four months of “patiently” waiting and preparing, I cannot believe we are now only 3 days away from my start day!

These trips are a dream imagined. I have always wanted to take time to travel the world but I never expected that I would actually be able to do it. In April 2016, while rehabbing from shoulder surgery in December, and having a rough couple of years, I made the decision to book it. I had the perfect trifecta; time, money and limited responsibility.

I have always loved to travel. After going to Australia in December 2014, the desire to travel magnified and I started planning a list of destinations. The new friends I made in Australia, who shared this desire to see the world, kept that desire ignited. It was because of these new friends that I asked for a scratch travel map for Christmas the following year.

I think I may have squealed like a teenage girl when I received the map, and it soon became an obsession.  Once you scratch the first location, you want to keep scratching, and the plans start to formulate about how you are going to see the world. That plan I envisioned started to take form and is now this adventure that is before me.

I look forward to sharing this adventure with you, and please be advised, I am not a writer nor do I pretend to be on TV.  I now must go re-pack my bag, probably for the 10th time, as I have given myself ample time to rethink every choice I made.
