Welcome to My New Travel Blog
A bit about me to set the scene.
Got to 52 and with the tragic passing of a very young family member , I thought that there has to be something more that I need to experience, to take a distressing time and learn from it. I began to understand that any amount of money, high flying career, big house, big car etc means very little in the end. Yes, it is easy for me to say, I am not a high flyer but I have been blessed with a good life, family and friends and enough to enjoy life. Rajiv and Ajay have become lovely young men and I felt comfortable that I had done my best for them, they had a roof over their heads and were safe and happy enough for me to embark on my travels and not be a burden to them.
So, overweight, menopausal and grey haired, I decided to have a career break (retirement is too scary) and volunteer for a few months. After thinking about what I might do upon my return, I thought that maybe returning was an option, not a given!
