Who Are We?
Hi, I’m Sandra-the one with my head just above the clouds, who is always writing and thinking about stuff. I like being surprised, meeting interesting people and making unusual choices. I also enjoy learning about natural health and have been known to go a little crazy for a good cup of tea and other interesting concoctions.
I’m traveling with my compadre, Chris, who is responsible for many of the wonderful pictures displayed on Scribbleworld.com -and he’s also the one who makes this trip orderly-keeping track of the places we’ve been with GPS coordinates and maps. When he has time, he loves to make music with his electric guitar and is learning the keyboard.
What fun would life be without taking chances? We sold and gave away most of our clothes, gadgets, gizmo’s and other accumulated possessions from our life spent in a stationary environment. Our load lightened, we hit the road in our Honda Odyssey travel van in October of 2007.
To be honest, it feels like an -Either/Or- conundrum sometimes. If we travel the way most tourists prefer, we need lots of money, which takes time to earn and depletes other valuable resources like health, youth, and possibly even our enthusiasm. I’ve listened to a lot of grumpy old farts in my day, and I have to conclude that growing old sucks. I’m not sure traveling in a fancy RV, “someday,” would really be enough consolation for me to sit on my youth and wait.
I also feel some things like traveling should just be a human right because there is so much to gain, I can think of at least 7 great reasons to travel right off the top of my head. It is good to experience the world while young-it helps put life into perspective-something that is not always easy to do when you grow up in the confines of the public school system
