My name is Cindy, also rhymes with travel junkie. A friend said I was probably a gipsy in my previous life. One of my many secret missions in life is to convert you to run off every once in awhile.
Blame it on the Europeans. During my college days, I lived in a house full foreign students from Western Europe who lived and traveled all over their continent,sparkling some idea in my head. A couple of summers later, I worked with four Eastern Europeans, and we planned to travel around the US. A combined solo backpacking, Greyhound bus trip, road trip across the US, followed by three times flying across the Atlantic solidifies my lust for wander.
After completing 2 mega “projects” to “Visit 50 official countries in Europe” and “Going Home“, I am taking a big break, yup I’m taking a vacation from vacation. I won’t go anywhere just to sight seeing anymore. The next time I leave home I will either (1) participate in a volunteer program, (2) attend a workshop, (3) take a course, (4) get certified on a subject or (5) educate the locals about a subject.
Until then, bye bye travel.
