This post was imported from an old wordpress.com blog I used to have.

I turned 40 this year. I don’t feel I’ve aged much in the last 20 years, but I guess it’s happening. I love to travel. I love to see new things, feel new feels, smell new smells… you get the idea.

Most of my travel lately has been to the US. I was lucky enough to get to travel for work a couple of times a year, and with my folks living down there for 6 months of the year I always had a good excuse to go. I managed to see most of the US cities on my list in the past few years: New York, New Orleans, Portland, Austin, San Francisco, Chicago, Seattle etc.

I moved to South Korea in 2008. I went there to try my hand at teaching English for a year, and didn’t have a very good experience, so I came home after 3 months.

In 1999 I did a 3-week Contiki tour through Europe with my future (then) and ex (now) husband. It was a great way to see a lot of stuff and decide where I’d want to go when I returned.

About a year ago I decided that I was done with the status quo of my life. I had a great job that paid well and I really liked the people I worked with, but hated working a 9-5 office job. I quit and put my condo on the market. I decided to move to the East Coast to be closer to my family. But things didn’t go exactly (or at all) as planned. The condo didn’t sell right away. Or even fairly soon. It ended up taking 8 months. In the meantime I fell madly in love with Aldon and we started making a new plan. One where we’d stick together. One where we’d live every day as an adventure.

Here we go!
