Hi guys! I haven’t been home much since my Latin America backpacking expedition. I’m still traveling – this time, around the USA – my home turf. I’ve been reconnecting with friends and family from all over, and it feels great! I have missed you all deeply!
Since July, I’ve been to Austin, Boston, Maine, D.C., NYC, the Hamptons, Seattle, and now, San Francisco. I’ve been grateful to foster relationships from all walks of life, and meet the babies that were made while I was away. (Seriously, how did so much happen while I was gone? What was in the water? Or was it the rosé?)
You might be wondering why or how the heck I’m still traveling after all that. (I’m sure my parents are!) It has been nearly 14 months since I quit my corporate job and went out on the road. I guess you could say I’m in a period of transition. Yep another transition. From married to divorced. From corporate marketing gal to solo backpacker. From figuring-it-out-freelancer to entrepreneur. Transitions have become what I do and know best! Truth be told, it’s an exciting period…I’ve been spending a lot of my free time working on my own business which I’ll be launching in the near future!! I’ll share more on that later. : )
Logistically speaking, I’ve been continuing my travels through airline miles, couch surfing, savings, and a little bit of side hustle. I’ve gotten good at budget traveling and building my life around one-way tickets. I took the bus all around the east coast, ate suuuper healthy, cheap pizza and bagels, and was graciously hosted by countless friends and family members. Thanks again everyone for your generosity!
As many of you know, Wandering Dawn evolved out of transition. I launched it to share my heartbreak and healing via my time alone in South America, Central America, and Mexico. Wandering Dawn will continue to evolve during this transition of “I’m home again, so now what” and future ones. I will still be here, blogging about my personal life and travels. Seeing the world is what lights me up, and travel will always be a part of my journey. I will also be blogging over at my new business website (launching soon!) so you can get more of me over there if you’re so inclined. I might even launch a fancy newsletter. I can’t wait to share it with you.
Thank you, dear readers, for following me as I explore, grow, and figure life out. It has been a crazy, messy, beautiful period, but guess what? I am grateful and wouldn’t trade it for anything. #perspectiveshift
