New Daily Photo Feature Added

Many of you have asked me to display my photos in larger format and I am happy to report that I have finally found a way to do so. On the right-hand sidebar, at the very top, click on the new “Daily Photo” bar to see large format photos from my travels. Since this is a new feature, there may be some bugs to work out. For example, anyone who has signed up to receive an email each time I publish a new post may now begin receiving emails each time I upload a new daily photo – I am testing over the next few days to determine what will actually happen and hope I won’t scare off subscribers by inundating you with emails. Bear with me; the blog is always evolving. Please feel free to send me your thoughts and comments.

  1. I’m so glad that ABC ran the story on you today.   I’ve spent the past 33 years in banking and often wish that sometimes I could just pack it up and escape.   Best of luck to you in your travels, it will be fun to see where you go and to follow your blogs.  

    Have Fun

      • Barbara, i just have to ask, how in the world did u find the courage to walk away?   I read that you got sick and u promised yourself something different…. but to step out and really do it is awesome.  I’m 54 this year… and growing up I always wanted to travel.  To work for an airline and see the world and then along came life.   If I could just take a mulligan and do it again… I’d take a sales job in a heart beat just to have that chance to travel.  Sometimes I feel that I’m so unhappy doing what i’m doing that i’m taking the ones I love down with me… Your story so touched me this morning I can’t wait to see where you go next… Maybe I will figure out how to post my picture soon!!  

        • Hi Paul: Well, it took me years of being miserable before I found the
          courage to walk away. I was on a roller coaster for so many years –
          building up a successful career by working 70+ hours a week, only to burn
          out and walk away, promising myself I’d never do that again.But each time,
          within a short while someone would make me an offer I couldn’t refuse and
          the whole process would start all over again. Finally, the universe
          intervened, making me very sick. From my sick bed, crawling between bedroom
          and backroom, I had time to reassess my life. The difference that last time
          was that I was very sick and thought I might die without getting to do all
          the things I’d ever dreamed of. I realize that I’d been making decisions for
          all the wrong reasons – out of fear of not having enough money to retire
          comfortable and, most of all, fear of what others would think of me if I
          chose this unconventional lifestyle. Certainly, my family did not approve
          and society as a whole might not approve of my Bohemian lifestyle, but what
          Ive learned is that the only one who has to approve is me. In the end, you
          just have to decide to do it and hold the vision of what you want your life
          to look like in your mind, never wavering, no matter what others say or

  2. I just saw your story today on WNN, and I have to say that the story is so much like mine in this time of my life…I just had my 44th birthday, and I have to say I wish I had the guts to do what you are doing…which is what I’ve always wanted to do…visit the world and document it…Good Luck to you…you are diffinitely an inspirational….

    • Hi Monica: Never believe that you can’t do anything. Visualize the life you
      wish to create and hold on to that vision, no matter what anyone else says.
      The only person you need to make happy is yourself. I wish you the best of
      luck, and thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment.
