How did you find me? I wonder if it was a destination experience that I created for you, a class that you took in our travel school, a social media post, or at an airport sipping on a glass of champagne? Regardless of what landed you here, I am so happy to have you.
Let me start off by saying this - I have no clue about blogging. I have never done it and don't even know how often I am supposed to "blog". One thing that I am great about is researching so you best believe that I will have a better understanding about this by the time I post again. This blogging thing is something that I decided to start doing during the COVID-19 pandemic. I now have time to start something new.
Here is a little bit about me - I am an original Georgia Peach who has an addiction to travel! When I say addicted I mean a Delta Airlines Platinum Medallion Member Addict. The ONLY one reason why I have not sold my home and took off with a backpack is because I have two daughters who I love waking up to everyday. As soon as they have established their own families I will be out!
While I am able to, I hope to inspire other female travelers to travel more and worry less. Look, we all have an expiration date so our time is limited. Even if traveling is not your thing, whatever your "thing" is, do it sis. I made the decision years ago to not allow people and life changes to get into the way of my joy of traveling. I take my children with me often on my adventures, but for the most part I travel solo.
I hope to show you the full picture of what a lifestyle of traveling looks like for someone like me with children at home. No they are not neglected, and no it isn't selfish of me to travel so much. Don't believe the narrative that you were raised to believe! I was not born to sit at home and wait for the children to be grown and gone before exploring the world. You see, we explore together when possible. Otherwise, momma will bring them back a souvenir when I return. I have raised strong, independent, and intelligent young girls. We are good! Our life is just not the typical American way. We just move different!
I was told once that traveling is overrated. Next thing I know I see that same person traveling the world too. It's okay sis, I get it - when the travel bug bites there is no escape. But you won't know this until you get out here and move different.
Nevertheless, my hustle continues to be a great mom, sister, daughter, friend, mentor, entrepreneur, educator, niece, aunt, godmother, neighbor, club member, prayer partner, sorority member, church attendee, community volunteer, and now BLOGGER. Whew! This list has made me log into my Delta App to book my next flight. Too bad I can't go any further than the kitchen for now - thanks Coronavirus.
It's 3am here in Atlanta so I guess I will get some zzz's for now. Ttyl
