On this post I will share the timeline to the places I moved to and on another post I will break it down. Over several posts I will share how I did all this amount of traveling and why, in hopes to inspire those that desire to pick up and go.
Childhood travel doesn’t count because it was not a personal choice but if you must know I have been traveling solo from the age of five years old. Every summer since 1984 my mom would put me on a plane in care of a flight attendant until my aunt would meet me at the destination gate. I remember always sitting at the very first row. Little me would be away all summer long to be in care of my aunt and uncle but surrounded by my three cousins all within the same age range. I have been traveling solo pretty much ever since with some exceptions in recent years.

Where have you lived?
How often have you moved?
I want to know. I get excited when I meet people with the similar experiences. Especially, because my family and friends were convinced I was lost.
- All that is gold does not glitter,
- Not all those who wander are lost;
- The old that is strong does not wither,
- Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
- From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
- A light from the shadows shall spring;
- Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
- The crownless again shall be king.”
- All That is Gold Does Not Glitter” is a poem written by J. R. R. Tolkien for his fantasy novelThe Lord of the Rings.
