The hardest question for me to answer is, “So, where are you now?”–the implication being, “Obviously you have satisfied your crazy desire to live differently from the rest of us–what can beat 2 years in Armenia? So now that you’re safely ‘home,’ you must have taken up residence somewhere and we can expect you to be there for awhile… Where is it?”
That is SO not the case, which means it’s very hard for me to answer the question.
*Tip: When you start with incorrect assumptions, no question will get you the right answer.
It has been a month since I arrived back on American soil. In that time, I spent about 2 weeks at home with family and friends, 1 week in Minnesota with more family and friends, and 1 week in California visiting friends, attending a workshop called “Experts Academy,” and spending more quality time with all the females in my family (four sisters, mom and grandma).
Because I’ve spent so much time (still) traveling, I haven’t had time (or the desire!) to put down roots yet. So the short answer to the lingering question in everyone’s mind is:
I am HERE! There are no “roots.” I can tell you where I’ve been, but I have no idea where I’m going next or where I’m “living” except right here, right now.
In these past four weeks, I have not established a home base. I have been relying on the generosity of friends and family (and the occasional hotel and rental car) to put me up and drive me around.
Where will I end up? I don’t have a clue. And I’m having a blast!
Two months ago, I had a basic outline for the next two months. That timeline ends on Saturday, when my brother gets married.
Luckily, I just got some exciting new ideas from Brendon Burchard’s Experts Academy for what to focus on next. That includes transitioning to helping adventurous people create interesting, interactive travel blogs so that they can easily connect with others and fund their alternative lifestyles traveling the world.
I realize that doesn’t answer the question of “where,” and it brings up a follow-up question of “how,” but those will be answered in due time. Just… Be patient. And understand that, for the time being, I don’t have an address.
