Still curious?  Read on!
Ten years ago I faced a health crisis that challenged my mind, body and soul. Two years later Hurricane Katrina hit destroying my apartment and my community and launching me out of New Orleans, my home for nearly ten years. Eighteen months later I returned to New Orleans excited but… not quite inspired to settle down.

I met a crossroads nearly 5 years later that required I do something… different.  So I did. I took a leap and bought a ticket to Europe.  This was the beginning of an international adventure and big school of life that continues today, over three years later.

My unexpected expat life isn’t about seeing all the best places in the world.  It’s a personal odyssey and a journey of transformation. This blog is my story.

Please join me as I explore these juicy topics enmeshed in my life abroad.

Chronicles.  The regular stories from my irregular life  – wherever in the world I may be.

Travel Tips.  After living and traveling overseas for nearly three years beginning with virtually no money and income, I have stories, experiences and a some good ideas to share and pass along.

Spirituality.  This is a central focus to my life and journey.  Traveling overseas has afforded me new opportunities in this realm and provided me with community and support no matter where I am in the world.  Additionally, my own personal practices provide the backbone that give me the fortitude to continue exploring the often unexpected expat life.

Health and Wellness.  For me health and wellness includes healthy eating, healthy body and healthy mind and spirit. Paying attention all of these things makes a huge difference in my life.  It is a joy and sometimes a challenge when living in foreign environments.  It’s fun to share and discuss with others.
