I’ve followed Kristin’s Be My Travel Muse blog for quite some time – I have nothing but admiration for her choices. One of her latest blog posts really resonated with me – aren’t all women constantly questioned on their choices? Have a career/don’t have a career, have kids/don’t have kids, (go on, keep judging)… At the end, all women’s life choices need to be right for us personally. Our goal should be to stop trying to make the rest of the world happy and listen to ourselves more. So bravo, Kristin!
The question comes up again in casual conversation. It can strike anywhere, while riding along in the car in Germany, at high tea in Zimbabwe, or in the middle of an adventure around Angkor Wat in Cambodia. At this point, I’m not even annoyed anymore because I understand that people are just curious and a little bit worried.
So when are you going to stop traveling and settle down?
The question is flawed, though. It indicates that I have just two choices: Be single and nomadic forever or pick one place and person and get a house with a white picket fence.
