Come With Me…

Blog profile

Some years ago, a friend told Vicki Hatfield, “Don’t wait for when… Sometimes, when never comes.” Months later her friend passed away. But, Vicki embraced the advise and has been traveling ever since. That comment led to one of her inspirations, “I love the memories I have when I return home that I can wrap around me like a warm blanket on cold winter nights.”

    I am always excited to start a new trip. Even when it is for work I still get that “feeling”. However, I end up feeling like I am outside of my body and watching myself almost like in slow motion. Then I get highly emotional about leaving to go home. I never want to leave!!! Then when I get home I feel as if it was the greatest trip I ever had. Everytime! I know that some trips are better than others, I am a flight attendant so that makes it worse! Of course the vacation trips are much better than work trips but I think you all know what I mean. I mean, who doesn’t like to go someplace different every night and get paid to do it? The thing is, I guess I am getting older and feel like every minute counts. I can’t do this forever, I eventually have to slow down. Is that why I feel such nostalgia? I am worried that the next trip may be my last? You never know…so I just let the feeling wash over me every time. I feel like a kid in a candy store when I put on that uniform and ID and walk into the airport ready to fly to work!!!!!

      The thumb. A very useful part of the anatomy, especially when you decide to head out into the world, hitchhike and use other modes of transportation. For Jo Magpie, it (both actually) have served her well in her travels – always heading east. She’s once again on the move. Yup, east.

      Naomi, David and their two sons are ‘on a slow roam around the world’. Though both successful, David didn’t want his children to view him as the dad who was always working. So, with the business and house sold, possessions relocated – the four set off to explore. Their style of travel allows them to live/work in comfort while spending quality time with Lucas and Easy (Ezekiel).

      In 2008, the Annison family moved from the UK to New Zealand and bought a boat. In 2010, they upgraded to a camper van to explore the country. Though the cats stay home to help the elder son with the yard work and house, the remainder of the family (including the dogs) traverse the open roads of Kiwidom, searching for hidden treasures.
