I know I've hinted...insinuated...mentioned...maybe even rambled about the idea of traveling full time. What I haven't done is officially declared that for the last 2.5 years we have been PLANNING our escape into the wild unknown.
The secret (though not really...right?) is that we are leaving the rat race, and we are joining the ranks of full time travelers. We plan to take our time and enjoy the next few years...whatever they may hold for us. We have so many plans, ideas, things we want to do and see...but in the end, we know that we can't hold to any schedule. We are going to follow the wind and enjoy.
Our goal is to live a life that we don't need a vacation from.
The money is saved, the plans are in place, the date is set. We are leaving the American Dream to follow our own. And as it turns out, it's the very thing I've always wanted...I just didn't realize until we went through this process of digging deep and figuring out what kind of people we really wanted to be.
I have been waiting so long to say this out loud, I think this is what it feels like to burst.
I think I just burst...whew...that felt good.
