Cacti

It is the middle of January, cold, icy and miserable . So I am escaping for five days to Arizona for sun and to see friends Julia and Ron. I met them at the International Living Conference in Mexico last May. I have told my travel agent, to never let me be in Toronto in January again!!

I have had number of reactions to my blog re: what is it like to be a Nomadic Intern?? The top question was, this has to be a very expensive lifestyle ?!?! My answer is I spend the same or less than I did in Toronto every month, and people are very surprised by this. I have friends all over the world that I spend time with, stay at guest houses and use AirBnB! I am very fortunate!!

It has been very busy in Toronto seeing family and friends, getting ready for the next five months’ adventure. Having Doctor’s appointments, buying stuff I need eg vitamins, prescriptions etc, nothing too exciting!

I was asked last week how much work it is to have my lifestyle and I hadn’t thought about it before, but it is a full time job!!! Planning and working with my travel agent Tammy, contacting friends, where to go and what to do while I am there.

So my plan is to leave Toronto on January 31st. To Palma Mallorca, where I had left a suitcase. I plan to stay a couple of months and have friends visit. A trip to Rome for few days, plus other adventures still to be announced.

Early April I leave for London for few days and then to Iceland for Spirit of Humanity Forum, before heading back to London. I then leave for Athen’s Greece and other destinations within Greece. I plan to be back in Canada June 12th.

My adopted family in Toronto where I am staying gave me a beautiful sterling silver angel. It is engraved with “The Nomadic Intern” and dated. It shall always travel with me !! I must admit this is becoming a lifestyle I really enjoy.

About Betty Steinhauer

Betty Steinhauer was born in England and raised in Toronto, Canada. Even as a young mother, Betty was active in the community sitting on a number of boards and lending her expertise to various public organizations. In 1983, she founded Betty Steinhauer & Associates Ltd. a consulting firm where, for twenty-five years, she used her unique abilities to act as a catalyst, facilitator and advisor to both the private and public sectors, in forging relationships between organizations and/or individuals for mutually advantageous outcomes. For many years, Betty travelled widely in out-of-the-way areas of the world. As she travelled, the idea for The People Bridge Charitable Foundation was formed. The People Bridge was registered as a Canadian charity in 1997. The mandate of the Foundation was to facilitate important changes in the lives of ordinary people through small-scale charitable projects. Betty has now retired the Foundation that, during its lifetime, undertook over 100 projects worldwide, mostly in conjunction with organizations already working in the target area. Betty’s experience and expertise in business, along with the advice and assistance she receives from colleagues around the globe, give her a unique ability to spot the need and understand how it can be met. Betty has the unusual combination of an entrepreneur’s abilities and an intrinsic understanding of people. Betty has visited India seventeen times in the past twenty years to pursue her spiritual journey. She has frequently been a guest of the Brahma Kumaris and the World Spiritual University to study meditation and further her own spiritual life. Betty is currently active with the Steering Committee of the Spirit of Humanity Forum, in Reykjavik, Iceland. This is an annual Forum that, it is felt, will become to the spiritual world what the Davos Forum is to the financial world. Betty makes her home in Toronto, and has published her memoir “My Way”. She began her Nomadic Internship in the summer of 2013.
