Traveling is Worth the Wait

Where will I be traveling now? While I’m saving up for my next big expedition abroad (14 months of full time travel was hard on the bank account/pocket) for next year, I’ll still be traveling. Now just not too far from home this time. So where will I be going you ask?

  • Traveling within Canada
  • Traveling within Atlantic Canada
  • Traveling within the United States
  • Traveling within my home province: New Brunswick
  • Becoming a tourist within my own city

Just because I don’t have the instant gratification of bring able to travel “abroad”, doesn’t mean I can’t “travel”. Potentially, I could end up abroad in March 2015. I’m willing to wait for another big adventure! The wait will be worth it, just as the wait prior to my 14 months of full-time travel was worth it. Although it’s not always easy to wait, I’m willing to put in the effort to make my long term dreams come true–and that’s to travel abroad as often as I can, while completing new things in each destination that I visit.

The Marriam-Webster dictionary defines traveling as going on a trip or journey, to move from one place to another, to go through or over (a place) during a trip or journey, or to go to a place and especially one that is far away.

That could mean anything. That could be anywhere. I’ll still be doing that. I’m already traveling. In fact, I just recently had a weekend getaway in Nova Scotia over Thanksgiving weekend. I’ll be posting about that later.

My travel goals for the next 8 months include: traveling to a new place (hopefully many new places) regardless of what country its in, continue to complete items on my bucket list, revisit my favorite places within Atlantic Canada, travel to at least 3 different U.S. cities, travel within Canada (outside of Atlantic Canada), while showcasing New Brunswick on my blog (my home province).

Are you excited to see more about North America? Are you ready to read about my previous adventures abroad prior to my year off? I’m ready to share and I’m excited to continue traveling.

  1. Travelling does not always mean going to another continent. In times I have appointments in Germany, I only travel on weekends. Sometimes the experience to discover something more close to you is even better. I’m really looking forward to learning more about North America 🙂

  2. You’re absolutely right. You don’t have to go abroad to ‘travel’ as I currently sit in a log cabin in Cornwall typing this! Sometimes you miss what’s on your doorstep when you venture too far 🙂

  3. Hi Jessica – Hope all is well with you- I wanted to drop this note to you. I always enjoy and support your blogs. I also comment as well. For some reason, I don’t see your comments or your likes to my post. I appreciate it!

    • Thank you for your comment, likes, and support! I appreciate it. I’ve been going to the websites you have shared/reblogged on your blog. You have been sharing some great posts. I particularly liked the post you reblogged about ‘A Loud Booming Bellow’. I’ve been liking the posts on the author’s website! Thank you for sharing them with me.

      • Thank you Jessica for responding back to me, I appreciate it! You bring such great and rich post and experiences sharing it. I enjoy every moment!

  4. Hi Jessica, thank you for your follow. It’s always good to come across another fellow traveller and I think ‘travel’ is any where you haven’t been before, near or far 🙂 I’m sure where ever you end up next year will be amazing…

  5. Yes, I agree- it’s so easy to get so excited about far-flung exotic destinations that we forget about the wonders in our own backyard. I for one and very excited to hear more about the East Coast- I’m Canadian but I’ve never been east of Montreal. The Maritime provinces have always appealed to me (especially Newfoundland) and I’d love some inspiration 😉

    • Well, east of Montreal is a gem–that’s where my heart belongs (and all the fun is). The friendliest people in the world! I am looking forward to sharing more about Atlantic Canada with you Miss. Canada. Where are you located now? You’d love NFLD! I’ve only ever been in the winter to go skiing, but the “Rock” as its called is a dream!

      • I’m living just south of Seoul, South Korea, so it’s certainly an adventurous life. I grew up in southwest Manitoba- land of gorgeous prairie sunsets. I’m excited to see what kinds of places we’ll both blog about this year! 🙂

I'd love to hear from you; leave a reply!
