The Beginning!

Why am I doing this ?!  Well .... recent events have lead me to believe that the time is right for a move.

So with some nervousness I have decided to quit my job and take a trip down under with a view to relocating.

Why ... Well like many I have been ill through over work, stress and the pressures we are placed under in the modern work places.

I need to break out of this ... I need to find some happiness again. For many reasons I still have not found my place again in life, after an unhappy divorce I moved to germany, but despite trying hard I still have not found myself happy ... I thought I had found it again here  ... but lost the person I loved very much .... its hard to love someone so much and be so close .. yet so far apart ....

So I find myself at a cross roads again in life ....  What road do I take ...   whats the right direction ... is there one!

Well its not signposted happiness so I have to take a chance .. !

So after a few months break I will go hunt jobs in NZ and in Aus ....

Its  a bad time in the worlds markets but I have alot of skill and knowledge ... I am financially ok .. what the hell ... lets go ...... whats the worst thing ... I enjoy along trip than I planned!

Perhaps a break into an english speaking country will help me break out socially too....

and so I have booked a long trip ...... no plans ..... just go

Is it right .. for now I dont care ... I need to stop feeling the way I am and find something else.

My life and work coach is pleased .. about time she says .. go travel .. no plans .. enjoy the feeling ... excited? 

Well yes and no .. yes and scared at the same time .. excited but  also nervous!

Who knows what the future brings .. but for now ... I made a choice .... lets see where it takes me

I do know that I will meet alot of new friends ... travellers too on their own road and their own path in life ....

But quite where my path takes me yet ... I cannot see .........

Hey good luck! I maintain Australia is a great place to come to forget your woes for a while - all that sunshine makes everything in life a little brighter :) Plus of course we have the down-to-earth, no worries attitude. I hope this new beginning is everything you hope it will be! Bonne chance.
