I have been a wanderer most of my life. Just ask my old friends. They have shaken their heads many times over my decision to just up and move to a new place and new life. I would not change any of this; however, I feel that now that I am “way” older I should perhaps settle down.
My plan is to stay put and travel. It will be cheaper and less stressful on my aging body. I cannot give up the new adventures that new places bring; I am a junkie for new experiences. Therefore, I will just visit these wonderful places and continue to live in Florida.
I cannot tell you how many wonderful people I have met and how many wonderful new places I have enjoyed. I just do it. I do not count them. All I know is that I thrive on this type of life. I want to see what is around the next corner, down that road, or in that building. Some might think it is a sickness and perhaps it is. But it harms no one and gives me great pleasure. Well, it has caused some strife in my friends’ lives over the years, if I am completely truthful. They had to start putting my new address in pencil so they could change it when I moved. I am sorry to cause them that inconvenience, but now the friends are fewer and we communicate by email and Facebook, so my “semi-permanent” address bothers no one so much anymore.
Now, I am on a new adventure to explore everything in my new city and the cities nearby. I will then reach out to those places closest to me – travelling this time rather than moving there.
