What’s driving my “next chapter” is my love for seeing, experiencing and understanding other cultures. But it doesn’t come without a cost. Financially, I have to pick and chose and prioritize. My husband and I have made travel a priority for the next several years. To free us up for these experiences, we downsized considerably and live very simply. But life is so much richer. And so far, I have no regrets. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
These major life changes have afforded us to visit Japan, the Philippines, Panama, and Colombia over the past two years. Today we booked a trip to Spain for the fall. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Part of navigating your next chapter is to decide and prioritize what is utmost important to you, create a plan about how to get there, and put the plan in motion. I promise you will never look back. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Oh, and if anyone has recommendations for things to do, places to stay and/or dine in Madrid, Barcelona, Granada, and Seville, please, please, please, send them my way!!
