Bonjour friends. Lets wrap up this week and get the weekend party started.
ROUND UP time!
OUR WEEK: I wish I had tons of interesting tidbits to share with you this week, but it has been slow over here. Well, slow with adventure and fast with work, 15 hour days to be exact. We are under two weeks away from launching WorldTowning and the Hot Latino happens to be out-of-town for work again. Hmmm, fishy, right? Today was a good day… the police did not visit (a post for another day), a kid did not go missing and no one threw up. Yep, it has been one of those kinda weeks.
FEAR: Lets chat briefly about fear today. It has been on my mind this week as I am on the cusp of yet another big change. And I do have fears, for sure! Many people we meet are quick to assume that nothing scares me because we travel. Well, travel does not scare me. Safety while traveling does not scare me. Medical care in a foreign country does not scare me. Screwing up my children because we travel does not scare me. But, you know what scares me? Regret! It scares the crap out of me.
I don’t want to be filled with regret because I DID NOT take a chance on the unknown. And that is why we are bringing WorldTowning to all of you. Because we want you all to travel!!! And we are going to help you get there. And I don’t want to have regrets in my elder years about what I could have done.
Today I ask you to please share our story, our blog, our vlog, our Instagram, our Facebook and help us grow this Worldtowning community before we even launch. We need all of you to spread the word, challenge the norm and fight those fears.
ONLINE ABUSE OF WOMEN: Are you tired of it? Have you ever been exploited? This Ted Talk piece by Ashley is very powerful. *Graphic language
40 YEAR OLD NOMAD: Has the thought crossed your mind? *Graphic language
LIVING: Janne the poet is calling bullshit. Are you living your dream? Is today the day you make a change?
THIS: Equal pay. I love seeing big companies bringing it!
PARIS TOURISM – A heartfelt day to give back.
HYÈRES OBSERVATIONS + BEYOND!
My plan is to share discoveries, observations and pretty much randomness from days in France. Of course there will be more lengthy posts on the information that deserves more air-time, but so much is happening that it cannot all be in one post.
Today I want to share some images from our sweet village in the south of France. There will be a full post one of these days, but for now lets just enjoy the pictures and dream about the weekend.
Have a fabulous day!
