So many stories begin like ours. We worked really hard through our 20’s, we were on our way to living the American dream. At some point along the way life didn’t make sense anymore. We may never be able to fully explain our rationale but here we are. Simply put, life as we knew it wasn’t why we existed, our families were living and growing without us. The world we knew was largely shaped by the choices we made a decade ago. We knew it had to change. The only career I knew no longer made sense to me. What else is there to do besides buy a van and plan an adventure?
Inspiration is important. Personally, I was motivated by my nieces and nephew along with Brad and Sheena from DriveNachoDrive, if you like adventure and haven’t read their book I highly recommend it. B is already a free spirit, I’ve known that for awhile. She has been waiting the past 16 years for me to catch up.
