Oh, The Places I Will Go: 4 Places I Plan To Spend Time In As A Wandering Empty-Nester


I will be 55 when my youngest daughter graduates from high school. Who says you can’t be a wandering empty-nester? My most recent major life decision freed me from a mortgage and home maintenance. This freedom has made me start seeing my empty-nester possibilities in a whole new light! All I can think about are all of the possibilities to wander around the world and explore. Of course, I have to tie up one loose end, employment. I have five years to figure it out. I will come up with a plan.

Here are 4 places I plan to spend time in during my wandering years.

Seattle, Washington

Cape Town, South Africa

The Amalfi Coast

Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

Imagine being able to move around the world freely. Where would you live? What other places do you think I should add to my list?

Much Love,

Perfectly Imperfect but VERY PROUD WOMAN, MOM, LAWYER, and AUTHOR, but most importantly...LIFE LOVER! I laugh loud, I work hard, I play hard, I am adventurous, I am curious, I am driven, I have moments of deep insecurity, I am loving, I am vulnerable, I am explosive (not one of my finer qualities), I dance around my house alone, I am an awful perfectionist which makes my insecurity worse, I sing out loud in my car without any concern for whose watching, I have trust issues, I do not live through my children, I no longer try to force my children into the mold that I created so that I could feel validated as a mother, I am a risk-taker, I am guarded in my personal life, I am kind, I am grateful. I am so excited about the rest of my life!

  1. Incorporate a safari into your visit to Cape Town. We stayed at a camp called Arathusa. Also, you might enjoy a cruise through the South Pacific.
