DO Date a Girl Who Travels

Always a lone traveler at heart, this is a great post defining and explaining a woman who loves to travel. Thank you.

Recently a blog post went viral, translated into 16 different languages the post was called, Don’t Date a Girl who Travels. Wonderfully written and accurate in the description of an independent woman who can’t be tied down, a woman meant to explore, a woman who should not be held back.

I read this post and smiled, recognizing many of the values identified as ones that I have discovered in my own life of travels. It’s tone empowering, fierce, a life lived unconventionally, a women wisely choosing to follow her own will, not that of someone else’s.

Yet I couldn’t help questioning; Why not chase life right along with her? Why has an article celebrating a passionate woman ended with a proclamation to let her go? Why is confidence and daring curiosity in women so often paired with solitude?

So, here goes my response…

Do date a woman who travels.

Back to Front

As I sit brainstorming and working in this so-labelled dreary “polar-vortex” weather, I have TEDTalks running in the background.  This one in particular by Stefan Sagmeister steadily gained all of my attention.  Very interesting how he runs his business, and I also enjoy/agree with his view on integrating retirement years into working years.  Click the image below to watch, or listen, and perhaps gain some inspiration as I did.

Free Programs

A friend who works with Autodesk recently shared this free download for a program I have yet to explore, dealing with creating 3D models.
