Bougainvillea is a beautiful, blossoming shrub that announces spring is here in Florida. I took this shot wandering through town. This just makes me feel happy. Living in a tropical place is a blessing. There is sunshine and greenery all year round. I don’t have to wander far when I live in paradise. Where will you wander dear reader? -Wanderology Girl

There is such wisdom in this quote. It opens my mind to new ideas, people, and things. Without this openess to this vast globe I wander, I can forget the humanity I share with this intriguing, astonishing world I live on. Traveling is a gift to my soul. It awakens it, and arouses the depths of my soul. To be in touch with others and to entertain strangers may at some point bring me into the presence of angels. I wouldn’t want to risk missing that. Where will you wander dear reader?
I would like to cordially introduce my readers to an angel sent down from heaven. That is why she is white, she just hasn’t sprouted her wing’s yet. Meet Lulu TrixiBelle, my adorable French Poodle and best friend. If you want to learn something about wandering….take a little dog on a walk. We can learn so much if we are open to what the animals around us can teach us. Lulu has a sense of adventure and purpose when she wanders. She walks excitedly with her little painted toenails, tapping on the sidewalk. She acts like a child on Christmas morning, and her range of joy on a scale of 1-10, is 100! She is elated like she just won the lottery when I clip her leash on her. She bounces up and down like she is getting ready to go on a ride at Disneyland. She reminds me of sunshine after rain, and how even a little walk down the street can be looked forward to like a caribbean cruise. Wandering is an art. The art of being alive!

One of the challenges to travel is learning how to make it light an easy. The minimalist, yet fashionable, traveler knows that there truly is a secret to packing the right wardrobe for the right adventure. If you gear up to make this a ruthless simplifying exercise, you will find less truly is more. Taveling with less, well chosen, items leads one into vast expressions of creativity. The gift of the minimal wardrobe is how easy and hassle free you can travel still looking flawless and pulled together. I plan to launch a whole page on my blog next month on packing a classic, minimalist bag. Follow my blog so you don’t miss any of Wanderology Girl’s tips, ideas, and adventures. Happy travels! -Wanderology Girl
Sometimes in life I find myself in a familiar, yet safe, comfort zone. What life has been teaching me, is this…. the real magic happens when I stretch, feel the uneaisiness of a new venture, tolerate the fear of the unkown, and finally break free from the doldrum of the routine of life. Comfort feels warm, fuzzy, and safe, but growth takes me from soft living, into depths I never could have imagined. To travel, to wander, to try new things, and meet new people means something less superficial than a cozy life. It teaches compassion, understanding, expansion of the soul, and mind, in ways I could have never imagined. I’m taking a leap of faith, a risk, even the willingness to risk losing it all, in attempting a discovery journey. It’s an excavating of my soul, an archeologist dig into my purpose. It’s finding my true purpose in life in this world, that I know I was meant to discover and grow from. So for me, it will be, a wandering life, where ever my funds, my friends, my luck, and blessings can take me. Peace unto you all my fellow journey seekers. May you find something a little deeper than comfort in this life, and leave this life, with no regrets.
When we wander we discover something really special. We develop new eyes, we never return home the same person that we left. We find out how deep our souls are, and we measure that depth by the daily routines we return to. The magical thing is, even our everyday life becomes a new world, because we have been given a gift…..we can see the depth of living souls now.
Light is a sign that everthing will be alright. Sometimes you need to see a sunset from a new place to fully appreciate the message in a setting glow of miracles. Even though the day comes to symbolic end… It is a new beginning right around the curve of the earth, and light teaches us to visit the world and never fear travel.
