Six continents in ten months! For much of 2014 and 2015, I shared a family sabbatical with my wife, son, and daughter. As we journeyed around the world, I learned that I am at home while traveling.
One day, months into our round-the-world trip, our daughter asked, “Mom and Dad, where is our home?” My wife replied, “Home is wherever we are together.” I added, “So, we are at home traveling.”
I love traveling because I am open to new experiences, new people, new possibilities. When traveling, I pay attention more carefully and live more intentionally.
Now, I am at home. Although our round-the-world trip is over, I want to live like I do when traveling: fully alive, attentive to experiences, and open to people.
I live in a beautiful part of the world: The Emerald Coast of Northwest Florida. In this blog, I describe experiences and lessons I am learning while I am at home traveling.
