Wander for Life has a double meaning. Not only do I travel as much as I can, but also, travel brings joy to my world. Exploring new cultures and cuisines, meeting new people and places, seeing what’s around the next bend, makes my life worth living.
This can’t be all there is: Plan B
Atlanta, GA is a city I love and have lived in longer than anywhere else in my adult life. Up until recently I had a condo in the ATL, a secure cubical job, even a pension. But I was bored with my life. Yes, I traveled but I couldn’t exist only for my 2-3 weeks of vacation a year.
So, I saved money, learned to get along with less and refined my escape plan. In Oct 2013, I sold my condo and gave away most of my belonging. In January 2014, I quit my job and began living Plan B: life as a Professional Vagabond. From March to October 2014, I’m hiking the Appalachian Trail, under the trail name of Plan B.
When I finish the trail, I’ll travel the world. I plan to fund my new life by writing (I’ve published two books!), teaching English and living frugally. Expect to see me house sitting, couch surfing, camping and volunteering in exchange for room and board. Crazy? Probably. But sanity is over-rated, anyway. And it should be quite an adventure.
The focus of the blog right now is hiking the Appalachian Trail. Earlier posts have been about Frugal Living, Frugal Travel, Backpacking Gear and learning to live an Ultra-Lite Life. I’ve posted my world travels and my explorations of Atlanta including Things to do in the ATL, Atlanta Metro Restaurants and Atlanta History. Please comment and share your ideas on any of my posts.
