I found myself doing just that a few months before reaching the big four O! What do I want my next forty years to include? A husband? Kids? On first thought they sound soo very nice and ermm,… normal. Then as I delve deeper into my thoughts I realise that I do not want to lose the most valuable thing to me – my freedom.
I have lived a nomadic lifestyle for almost twenty years. How on earth would someone go from a life constantly on the move, to a static one with children or a partner? No, not for me, at least not now. The one passion that has remained consistent in my life is my love for travel.
Only those of you that have experienced that feeling of excitement and exhilaration that comes from landing in a completely new country will understand this. Exploring new surroundings and not knowing what is around the next corner gives me the same feeling.
I feel happy where I am at the moment; living as an expat in Germany. This experience has allowed me to explore new surroundings and learn a new culture.
However, I feel that this chapter is drawing to a close and I feel the need to move on. My surroundings are starting to become too familiar and the places where I can explore have become exhausted.
The next chapter in my life could be to travel the world again, or to set up a new home in a different country. I feel that decision will come soon. I will be sure to post on my decision soon!
