A Little Bit Closer……………..

A Little Bit Closer……………..

I’m a little bit closer to the start of my traveling life……I’m just waiting for the closing date on the sale of my house (there’s no hitches, so it should be soon), a quick trip to Key West then to Louisiana for a reunion and straight to the Mexican border.

I already have the town picked out to live in…..Playa del Carmen which is about halfway between Cancun and Tulum and directly west of the island of Cozumel (I love it there!!).  I’ve living arrangements narrowed down and should have that done in the next week or so.

I’ve got my auto and health insurance lined up and ready to put in force….. so that’s a ‘load’ off my mind.

I have the travel map supplied by an expat site helping us newbies with our travels.

I’m in touch with a few folks down there thru their expat Facebook sites……really appreciative of that.  Those sites are a lifesaver!!  The best use of Facebook ever!

Monies are lined up and preliminary budget is in place.

Friday August the 26th will be my last day of work. A grueling 4.5 hours!  Pack up my computer and take it to their office and tell ’em ‘adios’!!!  No pun intended.

A Little Bit Closer……………..

For now though, I’m going thru the agony of not being able to do anything really. Living on bare minimum in my house……bored!!!  I’ve got places I still like to go but I’m yearning for something new. The awesome adventures of the unknown.

And to boot!  I feel as if I’m living in someone else house!!!  Don’t mess this up, don’t do that…..things I keep telling myself.  Driving me wacky!!

So, I guess, I’ll make a run through all my favorite beach bars while I’m waiting.  I can start my book…..I’ve got 3 in mind and none of them are about or related to traveling.  I think I’ll start with the last one first.  It has me interested, smiling, and laughing.  Nah, I’m not gonna hint to this.

Oh, there will be another blog site starting up soon that is going to solely be about the experience of traveling.  This one isn’t for that…..sometimes I’m not sure what this one is!!!!   I’ll filter thru, get back to authoring some beach and beach bar stuff.  There’s also my music website (www.johngaudetmusic.com) which I’ve really abandoned!!!  I’ve got to get my act together.  Just because of the mp3 player and stores, that’s my hang up. Well with the extra time on my hands, I’ll have no excuse.

Life is busy, life is fun, and now it seems shortened by age.  WTF happened!

I’m a little bit closer.

Peace, Love, and Beaches,
