I’ve made a pretty big decision over the past several months, and I’m finally ready to share it with everyone:
I’m moving abroad this summer in order to see if I have what it takes to be an expat and travel writer!
Saying “this summer” sounds a little noncommittal, but I DO know that when I come back to my hometown for a short visit in August, I do not intend to stay. Perhaps I will be headed back to Spain, which is where I’ll be most of the summer, or perhaps I’ll be headed for somewhere else. It really doesn’t matter right now, however; what matters most to me is that I am giving myself the freedom to have an open mind and heart as I get ready to go on a new adventure.
I’ve had several people ask: Why Spain?
I’m going on an adventure because I want to, because I need to get out of my comfort zone, and because I CAN. That’s my reasoning and I think that as I have time to myself and time to breathe, I’ll figure out more reasons why along the way. And as I discover new things about myself while journeying to places I’ve never been, I will be sharing my thoughts and insights here on the blog, as well as my new (and soon-to-be-launched) travel blog: writerwithapassport.com.
The new website isn’t quite ready yet, but I’ll be sure to announce its “grand opening” sometime next week. My first stop and summer home will be in Alicante, Spain, and then we’ll see where I go from there!
Anyways, I thought I’d write more, but that’s all I care to share on the subject for now. I leave in exactly a week and am definitely ready for a change of scenery and pace. Stay tuned for more!
