Last Days in Greece. What’s Next?

Happy at Etosha Pan

A free Laura is a happy Laura.

I was last in the United States in December 2013.

Since then, I’ve traveled to Cambodia, Athens and Crete, Greece, South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Nepal, Spain, Santorini, Crete again and Germany.  Incredible!  Even I can’t believe it.

And now, reaching my 90-day time limit in the European Schengen zone, I must leave Europe and stay away for another 90 days. This gives me great sadness but I look forward to seeing friends and family back in the United States.

I’ve been working hard to create new art and develop an online store, which I hope to open in early July 2014.  Some much-needed income from sales of art would certainly be a stress-reliever and help me continue to live my dream and inspire others to do the same.

I have no idea where I’m going.  With no home of my own, once back in the United States, I must make a decision rapidly as to where to go and what to do.  Sure, my wonderful family and friends are willing to host me, but as a matter of personal dignity, I don’t want to wear out that welcome by staying long.

The more I travel, and the more people I meet, the more opportunities open and I find my spirit torn in so many directions that it’s difficult to decide what to do. There are certainly worse problems. I feel incredibly fortunate and grateful. And confused. And I would be a liar if I didn’t tell you that I am scared about my ability to succeed at creating this life I want long-term.  Fear is part of the deal when you are reaching beyond your limits.

And then, of course, there is the unfortunate dilemma of money. I need some.

I have continued to accumulate airline miles and still have over a million “miles” to play with.  So for a while, flights continue to be nearly free, which is great.

In any case, I will likely be blogging less, if at all, while I am attending to business in the United States, and planning my next steps. I will, however, still use Facebook for little updates. You can see these without joining Facebook, just click Roam Far and Wide on Facebook.

I hope to have new stories for you from a new location somewhere in this beautiful world in no time at all. Where I land next is as much of a mystery to me as it is to you.

Stay tuned, and as always, thank you for your support and comments!
