In her article, she effectively captures many of the same experiences and feelings Heather and I frequently enjoy as we continue our slow, around the world travel adventure.
Here’s a sample of what you will discover in Christine’s post…
- How even buying something mundane like laundry detergent or tooth paste can be an adventure
- How after living in a new place for a while you might actually forget that you’re an expat
- Why depending on how adaptable you are, it can be easy to get too comfortable too quickly
- The hilarity and occasional frustration of trying to communicate in The native tongue
- Why her normal working hours have to be from midnight to 4 a.m.
- The banana effect
- The limp basil question
- How to avoid freaky weird moisturizer with “whitener”?
- Why it’s difficult to explain the differences of living in a foreign land to people back home
- Why long-term travel is so incurably addicting
Christine also talks about being, “…addicted to the little rush, the slight excitement, the added vibrancy when you’re in a new place.”
Heather and I equate this feeling to being like a wide-eyed kid on a field trip again. Everything is new, exciting, and pleasantly unfamiliar.
Bottom line: Being location liberated is a fantastic way to live and an excellent way to cultivate awareness.
