As time moves forward and the year had slowly begun to fall into place I am finding my slow quasi-nomadic travels have become more and more comfortable. I do still often times find myself in a panic, usually on the state of my finances (hehe who isn’t normally panicked about such matters?), but in the many months I have been without a solid residence, not that all the time spent living with the many loved ones who so graciously offered me sanctuary is not appreciated, I have come to learn much more about myself and more often than not found myself anticipating the packing of my bags and the pull of another adventure.
Barely 2 weeks into the new year I have found myself in Los Angeles, California, my home of sorts, and now in Phoenix, Arizona, with plans to head back to the Bay Area, California and for the Pacific Northwest closing out the end of the month. Many of my trips include a short amount of work in the region, got to love promos (Thanks Craigslist!) and the ability to work-travel, but really it’s usually a way to curb some of the travel expenses. So I have come to love the road, much more than I had originally thought when I packed up and took off, so ready to leave. And in realizing all of this and also saturating myself in travel, travel tips, travel deals, and travelers, I have found this community of digital travelers. A community built on a foundation of travel, but supported by a journalistic urge to share in a world staying ever connected via social media. A community I really do want to belong to, so I think I’ll try my hand at sharing.
Who knows where it might lead me.
