Lost @ home

“Traveling – It gives you home in thousand strange places, then leaves you a stranger in your own land.” . . . You see, feeling homesick in another country, brings back the memories about things missed from home. But, feeling homesick at home, is confusing because you’re home, so you think you should feel fine….

Coco!

So, I just had a “weird” experience. . . . I just went to the movie theatre here in Chile and watched a Spanish movie (w/o subtitles). . . . It might not seem like such a weird thing, but that’s the best word I could think of to describe it. It made me feel…

Two sides to everything…

Sometimes you just have to turn around and look behind you for a second. It might change a lot more than you think! . . . Location of picture: Cortina Puclaro 25 minutes from Vicuña, Chile 50 minutes from La Serena, Chile . . . While taking the picture above, I was drawn to the…

Face the fact!

Do YOU own a passport? Fact: Did you know that more than half of the people that live in North America don’t own a passport? . . . Now, I don’t know exactly how many people live in North America, but it’s definitely a fair amount. And, the fact that only half of us own…

Hope For Your Future…

Let your hopes, not your hurts, shape your future. -Robert H. Schuller . . . So, before I begin, I should start by saying that I don’t know the person who said that quote, but, when I read it, I immediately remembered one of the main reasons why I made the decision to live here,…

My Own Material

For today’s post, I was challenged to look through my old Facebook, Instagram or Twitter posts and pick something that stood out to me and write what I think about it now. . . . So, I chose to look through my Instagram feed and, while scrolling through, my very first Instagram post stood out…

A different type of post that I haven’t done yet on this blog, but I wanted to try it out. Let me know what you think in the comments (when you finish reading). . . . I’m just going to write what-ever and how-ever I would, as if we are best friends just casually meeting…

Where I write…

Place, setting, object, method, etc. . . . Many bloggers have specific settings where they write and what they use (laptop, tablet, phone, notepad, etc.). They have an ideal place they go to write about a specific subject using their ideal method of choice. . . . I applaud those bloggers because I am not…

Over-thinking…

“Over-thinking kills your happiness.” -Anonymous . . . For today’s post, I was told to pick a random quote and write something about it. So, I picked the previous quote, but, I don’t really know what to write. So, I found these two pictures that explain my thoughts of the quote. Thanks for reading! Now…

Why I started writing…

A rollercoaster year!

Hold up! Wait! Before I even start to talk about this past year, I just have to say that in the beginning of this year I would have never imagined being here in Chile for New Year’s. That’s just crazy! . . . I’ll admit, this year has had it’s down/low moments, but in general,…

Street dogs everywhere! 

So, I’ve only been in Chile for a few days now, but one thing I’ve notice since I got here are all the street dogs. . . . Now, I didn’t say ‘stray dogs’ because they are not strays. They get fed, but when they grow up and are not puppies anymore people don’t want…

Santiago, Chile – Day 1 

So, I’ve officially boarded the plane to Chile. And, all I want to do right now is sleep because it’s currently 01:00 (please consider this when reading the following post).  For those of you interested, I’m flying in a Boeing 777-300ER. And, it’s a completely full flight. But, even though I will be squished in…

Liebster Blog Award

My second nomination for a blogging award?!? Say, what?! Who would of thought? (not me, that’s for sure!) . . . When I started this blog, I wasn’t sure what I was getting into, but now, I love writing. I also expected maybe 2-3 people to read it; I never would have imagined having many…

The Versatile Blogger Award

My first nomination for a blogging award! What?! Did I read that correctly?!? . . . I’ve only been blogging for maybe a year (maybe less/more, I’m not really sure), but being nominated for The Versatile Blogger Award is amazing (that’s a huge understatement, but I have no words). When I started this blog, I…

Authentic Love!

What is the point of this life? Why do I do what I do? What would happen if I just quit today? Where is all this hard work leading to? . . . Those are some very deep and tough questions to answer. And. Well. I don’t know the answers to those questions (I don’t…
