Find Sunshine !!!


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.
