"Personally I like going places where I don’t speak the language, don’t know anybody, don’t know my way around and don’t have any delusions that I’m in control. Disoriented, even frightened, I feel alive, awake in ways I never am at home."
Michael Mewshaw 

As many of you have probably figured out by not, traveling is my passion. I love the excitement of a new place, or even a same place that I get to revisit. I love soaking in life and experiences; languages and site; food and drink. The only problem with being an adventurer, is the times that lack adventure. The times when routine sets in and you have to settle your mind somehow. This is me right now. I am having a difficult time being content with life currently. I long to be on a plane, long to be taken to a far away land. Contentment is a double edged sword as I look at. Being content where you are is good, but never stop striving for what is in store for you.  I am trying my hardest to seek what he wants for me, and learning day by day what that is. 


  1. Your words describe where I am and how I feel, too. I love traveling, I miss Europe, and I thought I would be there by now. But, my plans change and I am in a place I did not plan be at this point. Learning to be content is tough, but I am trying to be ok with the "now" being the "next step." For the time being...


  2. GREAT quote and ohhh, i totally understand how you feel. *sigh* i want an adventure NOW.

  3. I came across your blog by accident, but it's so cute!! Hopefully you don't care that I follow you...

    I understand the lack-adventure. I'm ready for something new too!


  4. Amen sister! I sort of feel the same way about contentment right now, but I also feel the need to recognize the importance of where I am right now. xo. Deanna
