Welcome to my blog!
Hi, I’m Margaret.
Do you love to travel or wish you could travel? Do want to get to know the United States and the world in all of its uniquely fun, sometimes a little messed up and crazy glory? Do you ever wonder about people and places that make us, well, us? Do you have an affinity for history and the people and places that make up that history? Do you love heartwarming stories about everyday people? Finally, do you enjoy learning new insights and perspectives that might change your view?
Then this is the blog for you!
A little about me:
I had the ‘normal’ life working 9 to 5, raising children and taking care of a home. When the children left the nest, I decided that a change of scenery was in order. I embarked upon a two-month road trip. I packed my truck and a tent and set off to see the United States with no particular agenda. Very quickly, I became addicted to the wanderlust, and that two-month road-trip became a full-time lifestyle that lasted almost 8 years.
Throughout my wanderings, I have encountered fun epiphany moments and life lessons learned. I was exposed to new sights and met amazing people that inspired, shocked and entertained me. My natural curiosity and the unabashed multitude of questions (yeah, I’m that guy in a tour), had me peel back the onion to discover that my perspective on commonly held beliefs were challenged and changed forever. These are the moments I want to share with you.
I hope you enjoy this blog. I try to post one blog a week that has some “Gee, I didn’t know that!” moments. Maybe inspire you to do a little of your own wandering. Please feel free to comment on a blog. I especially love it, if you have additional information to add to the overall blog experience for all the readers. I hope you learn a little something cool along the way.
If you enjoy my blog musings, you will probably enjoy my book, “Lessons from the Road: USA” available in all major online and book selling outlets.
