Today I stumbled upon a fantastic blog: The Lost Girls! I was having so much fun reading it, I just had to share. The blog was started by three twenty-something women that decided to ditch their jobs in New York City and spend a year traveling around the world to find themselves. I probably love the blog simply because this is something I’ve always wanted to do (as I ask Steven almost daily if he’d like to run away with me). If you’re a twenty something reading this, and you’re at all interested in a gap year – take my advice: just do it! As a thirty-something I can attest to the fact that as you get older you find more reasons and more responsibilities that keep you rooted. If you’re not rooted now, run off and enjoy the world!
I myself have all kinds of future travel plans – and (barring something terrible like a plane crash that takes me out of the race) I most certainly am going to do all the traveling I intend to do! Rooted or not…this is me. I love to travel, and I love to experience different cultures. I like to think of myself as a free spirit trapped in a type-A personality! (Ack…the cognitive dissonance).
So anyway, check out the blog. And if you’re looking for someone to take your next big trip with…drop me a line – I may just join you!
