Alright, I’ll just put it out there since no one is yet reading any of this and who knows if any one ever will… I do have a vague shadow of a plan coming together. These are the things that I know:

  • I used to like my job (notice I didn’t say “love”) I now loathe the thought of going to work. Spending my precious time on this earth making other people (and admittedly, myself) money. The vast majority of that time spent sequestered in a dimly lit room watching people grow old. I mean what’s not to love, right?
  • I have raised three beautiful and well-adjusted children that are on their way to discovering where life will lead them. Read: They don’t need me anymore.
  • I don’t want to wait to do the things that I have always dreamed of. If working with the aged has taught me anything it’s this: no one gets out alive, it is most oft times a slow descent into infirmity and I aint gettin’ any younger.
So what’s this crazy/genius plan you may ask… I am in the planning stages of quitting my fairly lucrative job, selling my house, clearing the clutter of material belongings from my life and traveling the world until I drop. Yup. Crazy talk, I know. However, I truly feel like I am withering from the inside. Early mid-life crisis? Perhaps. I only know deep down inside that it’s now (ok, soon) or never.
The blog post that pushed me over the edge: 
Travel The World On $1500/mo
Careful…  It could change YOUR idea of what “normal” could be too.

Hey there! February 2014 after a bit of soul searching but more of a desire to live my life differently, I made the decision to sell my house, sell all the crap that is filling up my life and hit the road for the life of a vagabond. These are my pictures, my stories and my journey...


  1. Love you Heather! I’m so happy you have the courage to do this. You are going to have an amazing time and surely no regrets. Have a wonderful adventure and if you make it this way, stop by.


    1. Thank you, Tacy!! I love you too! Will definitely take you up on the offer when we make it out there. Glad you are filling along here thank you for the support and encouraging words.
