Hi! My name is Erin, a
twenty-six twenty-eight (now) year old still figuring out her life. This is attempt number three at a blog (third times the charm, right?) You can see my other two failed attempts at:
You see I can’t get past a few posts, but hopefully that will change here!
This isn’t a conventional blog. This is a three-part blog – part travel (wanderings), part thoughts (wonderings*), part what ever I feel like. I have lived in three countries so far, U.S.A, France, and Hong Kong, (have you noticed a 3 theme going on?) and I want to share a bit with all of you. I have been able to do and see some amazing things, and my life has changed dramatically.
If you knew me while I still lived in the states, you would know I was a homebody and extremely family-oriented. While I am still extremely family-oriented, I am not so much a homebody anymore. I first got the “bug” when I visited France with my high school French class the summer before senior year. It was then and there that I decided I was going to someday live in France. The first picture is from that trip.
My second time abroad was during my university study abroad semester in Paris. This was the first time living so far away from my family and I really became the independent girl that I am today.
After I graduated college I got my “dream job” of teaching English in France! I was sent to a small town outside of Lyon, France, where I learned how tough it really is to live abroad, travel Europe, and have no money (welcome to reality!). The third picture is from that time.
Unfortunately, my dream job was only for one year and I had to wait a year to reapply. In the mean time, I tried to show my dad that I was a responsible young woman and applied to random teaching jobs in Asia, never expecting to get one. Low and behold, two days after I applied to one in Hong Kong I got a job, and two months later I moved here. This represents the 4th picture.
I will have a mix between past travel experiences, current ones, life in
Hong Kong NOW Chicago, and overall life. Join me in some of my crazy adventures and thoughts while I try to get through this insane game called life.
*Yes, I know wonderings is NOT a word, but I’m coining it today. You can have many thoughts, why can’t you have many wonderings?
