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?
Today I went walking. I find it is really important to spend some time alone, to hear my own thoughts, my own soul’s deepest yearnings. I ask myself deep questions….I silently and attentively listen for answers whispered….
….that’s how they often come. Today miraculously and exactly on time I heard something wash over me saying “Look up!” I am so glad the silence and quietness of my mind, allowed my soul to understand. This is what I saw, when I gazed through the mossy covered oak trees, this gorgeous spring morning. It was brilliant, it was God. It was a message “Keep going! Don’t you ever, ever, ever, ever, ever give up.” That can go for you too, dear reader….sometimes you just have to look up or you might miss something. Don’t give up on your dreams. You were born for it.
One of the mysteries of wandering that I have discovered, is that, I find beautiful creations that only bloom in certain locals. What a down right shame it would be to only see such magnificence in a magazine or picture, quite another emotion to experience this worlds variety of miracles up close and personal. This little beauty is a living creation I won’t soon forget from the Florida Keys. What will you discover dear reader?
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.
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.
