For years, friends have been telling me to write down my story. I haven’t felt like I’ve had much of a story but maybe I do. We all do. I’ve chosen the road less traveled. The road with rocks and holes and mud puddles. I’ve fallen down, gotten dirty, scratched up and hurt. I’ve always gotten back up and continued to laugh at myself the whole way through. Maybe my story isn’t much but it can be entertaining and I’ve learned so much about life and how to look at it from the journey I’ve chosen to be on.
My story is like all others – long. Usually, change in my life is inspired or driven by what I read. Books tend to have a heavy influence on manifesting my thought patterns into reality and action. This particular story starts back in 2005 when I was tired and feeling claustrophobic. I left my boyfriend, house and home to backpack into Victoria, B.C. on what I called a “Mecca” trip (inspired by The Alchemist). The result of which was for me to come home, pack up my Honda Civic with all my possessions and hit the road for New York City. But we’ll get to that later. This journey taught me a few things:
I’m not one to be tamed. I’m not one to bow down gently.
I’m a roamer who his learning to trust the journey.
Read on. Be inspired. Or uninspired. Laugh or criticize.
Think. Question. Embrace the life of an adventurer.
About Christine: I’m a 29 year old recently single girl originally from Seattle, Washington. I grew up in the woods and traveling and am somewhat of a roamer. I get antsy if I stay in one place too long. I love the outdoors and new adventures. I’m a curious soul. As you know, I’m planning to go to Honduras in a couple of weeks. Then, it’s a few US trips and I’ll be gearing up for a Southeast Asia trip for this summer. I’ll keep you posted on the Honduras developments. Just secured my backpack for the trip and have started getting the essentials together! Read Christine’s Blog here
