The Year of Living Dangerously

I Did It and I Plan to Continue...

One year ago today I started this blog,
it was a ~ umm ~ milestone birthday for
me.  In many ways it was also the start
of a new life for me.  Within the year both
of my kids would be living at school and it
was time to reinvent me.

It was a grand year for travel, I visited
12 countries on 4 different continents.
I used many forms of transportation
including, camels, elephants, tuk-tuks,
trains, bicycles, horses, boats, and planes. 
 We even circumnavigated the globe.

I visited places I couldn't even imagine
and I fell in love ~ with the people, the
food, the culture of these exotic lands.

I challenged myself physically from
hiking the Alps in the ice and snow to
jumping off dive boats to snorkel reefs
in Mexico.

But most importantly I have rediscovered
me.  I'm living life the way I want to, not the
way others expect me to live it.  I have no
interest in following the same path all the time.
If a new trail presents itself I'm willing to
explore it.  And even if that trail is not well
paved and is a bit bumpy, that's okay with me.

So stay tuned, the blog continues and hopefully,
so will the new adventures.
