It started to get cold in September 2020 and I knew that I couldn’t handle a pandemic winter lock down in Canada. Within the course of two weeks, I applied for visas to work remotely, and I sold my house. Over the next six weeks I began the process of selling most of my possessions, so that my life would fit into a 5 x 10-foot storage unit. At the end of November, I landed in Barbados, an island in the Eastern Caribbean, and began to explore it as a new home.
Wanderlust life is about the freedom to move around the world and experience it fully. My move took me to a foreign country, while yours may be closer to home. It is an exploration of taking the leap out of our comfort zones and surrounding yourselves with new people, ideas, and ways of being. It involves questioning what we know and doing things differently.
This is a journey of abundance and joy, with the usual pain and loneliness that wanderlust can bring. It is a community to support all of us in our journeys.
