Travel as Solace

A person needs at intervals to separate from family and companions and go to new places. One must go without familiars in order to be open to influences, to change. ~ Katharine Butler Hathaway

Seattle

My summer has been one of change and unspeakable loss. I was wondering how I would cope, but I have challenged myself to travel a minimum of once per month, but with the condition that the trip must have a real purpose related to one of my careers. I threw myself into planning my trips and I’m finding myself away from home more than once per month, which is perfect, because I don’t want to be alone at home to dwell on the past. The process of planning and booking is also an activity that keeps my mind occupied.

My first purposeful trip as a solo traveler is this week. I will be traveling to Seattle, Washington, my first trip to the Pacific Northwest. In addition to sightseeing and wine tasting, one of the activities I have planned is to fly on my first seaplane to Victoria, British Columbia. I can’t wait to share this trip with you. I hope you will continue to follow my blog as I take my first step into a positive, purposeful future.
