“…She’s ridden a camel deep in the Sahara, then played a violin concert for 60 Berber kids there at 6, swam with dolphins in Portugal, ate reindeer meat in Sweden, swam with sharks in Bora Bora, gone to foreign local schools in Spain and Asia to immerse in the language, takes piano & violin lessons over skype via webcams with teachers on another continent, can find her way on any subway from NYC to Paris,London, Vienna etc & feels perfectly comfortable on sailboats, cargo ships, horses or any mode of transportation & Has enjoyed every mode of lodging from camping & couch surfing to luxury suites in the world’s best hotels…”  –  soultravelers3 

This excerpt was taken from a smartly written reader’s comment on a Lonely Planet article I read via a tweet today – such an adventure! And this is about the experiences of the couple’s 10 year old daughter!! She was only five when they began their adventures! How lovely. The entire article focused on the viability of long-term travel integrated with one’s career. Good read. The comment responses were equally engaging.

The daring courtship of marrying a philanthropic lifestyle of travel and career/academic pursuits (without being independently wealthy or financially underwritten) is a mind-blowing concept… to do it….?  We shall see. 😉 I suppose it’s time to start really sharing about what provoked this whole thing for me. The next several blog entries will focus on that. I am so terrifically inspired, educated and comforted by the writings of others who have gone before me – other bloggers, writers, film-makers… LIFE-livers… so thank you… to all who have taken the chance to follow their dreams…taken the plunge, the leap of faith, the road less travelled, the bull by the horns….

Go Go ahead and follow the yellow brick road or the white rabbit…. a little bit of faith and Three Little Birds are sayin’ Don’t Worry, ’bout a thing… cause every little things gonna be alright…

much love & respect going out to ya’ll tonite. Peace, L
