I know some of you have been interested in finding out where I am going next. Sorry for not keeping you in the loop. Ever since I came back from my long term trip in Italy and Asia I have only been doing a few short trips here and there.
Basically, I have been trying to figure out what I was meant to do next. Did I want to continue my full time travels or did I want to “settle down” and only do shorter trips? At some point I convinced myself that I had to settle down. So I signed up for a waiting list for a house and I started preparing myself mentally for this new lifestyle choice.
But then the uncertainty kicked in. I began to get cold feet. The more I imagined myself living in a house with lots of stuff and only the occasional trip abroad, the more I felt like I was suffocating. However, I tried to ignore it. I tried to push it to the back of my mind. I was gonna go through with this.
No. No way. Uh-uh. I am not going through with something I don’t really want. I am not doing that to myself again. I am not ready to settle down, rent a house, take care of a garden, have people over for dinner and whatever else it entails.
I finally listened to my heart and I am continuing my full time travels.
I need to stop feeling like I “owe” my family to stay at home in Denmark with them. I need to stop feeling guilty if I leave for long periods of time. They do not want me to feel like that, so why should I? It’s stupid.
So I’ll be leaving again. In January I’ll jet off to New York City – my first travel love. My plans are not completely carved in stone. But I imagine that I’ll spend a good three months traveling from NYC down to Texas where I’ll fly to Mexico from.
I’ll then spend some time in Mexico – I’ve heard from fellow travel bloggers and digital nomads that there are some good and affordable places to stay.
After Mexico I’ll make my way down to Central and South America and basically see where life takes me.
I don’t know how long I’ll be gone. I have no plans. I’ve got nowhere I need to be. It could be 6 months, it could be a year, it could be more. All I know is that I really need to do this for myself. Not for anyone else. Just me.
And I hope you guys will come with me, virtually, by continuing to read about my adventures. You’re the best!
