pursuing a dream...and a winner

a fresh start...a clean slate...a new beginning...


however you want to phrase it, the turn of the calendar page to a new year always brings promises and dreams...

I'm sure that several of you have made plans for the new year...wrote down a few resolutions, picked a word for the year (my words for the year are "dig deep")...and just as sure, as the year progresses, plans change, priorities shift, this year turns into next year... or maybe even "some day..."


I have two friends who have stuck to their dream...and have made "some day" to be now...they are packing up and moving to Bogota, Colombia...for real...as in "sold all of their stuff, learned Spanish, said goodbye to friends and family and bought one way tickets!"

Jane Ann and Jim Engel are off on their lifetime adventure...to experience life in the Southern Hemisphere.  I applaud their gumption...I have moved a fair amount in my life but this is big...this is starting over in a new place, where you not only don't know anyone but there is no firm footing of a place to call home nor a familiar routine...but oh, the experiences they will have which will enrich their lives...fantastic!

You can join me as I follow along with their adventure...not only do they have a website - Colombia2You but a Facebook page and an Instagram account, user name janeann_engel

I've always had a dream of visiting South America...now we have someplace to stay...I've mentioned to the Southern Man that we could drive the new RV down there...follow the Pan American highway...yes, maybe some day...



And now a little drum roll...

  1. How exciting for your friends, in my dreams I pick up and ramble like a gypsy but in reality I have only ever lived here. I do love to travel and I love returning home, I guess I have both my roots and my wings and that suits me best. Have a great week Amy.

  3. I like your words for 2015. I haven't come up with mine yet, so until I do, I'm just letting last year's word and it's intention roll into this year. That's pretty neat about your friends - I'll check out the links. Sometimes We have to travel the world vicariously through other people's adventures.
