Departures are an inevitable part of travel. Some departures are elating, and some are downright depressing. Many are a bittersweet cocktail of many emotions.
Today, I’m looking at one of those mixed-bag departures. It’s time for me to say adios to Wanderlust and Lipstick, and pack up my proverbial pencil. It feels melancholy to close such a great chapter in my traveling and writing life, but I’m also feeling very grateful and satisfied by it. In the nearly 7 years (!) that I’ve been a WanderBlogger, I’ve enjoyed some fantastic adventures and made some great connections. The experience has had all the hallmarks of a great voyage. But along with my reluctance to let go, I feel excited as to where the road ahead may lead me, and what new adventures await around the bend.
I’m at a moment of big/scary/wonderful personal transition, but I do remain a writer and traveler at heart, and I look forward to the time when I have room in my life to write again. You’ll be sure to see me online again at some point! I want to sincerely thank you – my reader – for taking part in Travel with a Purpose. I do hope our paths will cross again, and until then. . .
Enjoy the journey!
