Beth and I have finally started our new travel nursing journey. Unfortunately the journey couldn’t get started without saying goodbye to all of our close friends. Yesterday our friends threw us a really nice going away party. One last bash before we left town. It seems like our friends group rarely has a chance to all get together, so it was nice seeing everyone. But it was hard to say goodbye.
I’m not sure what the future holds for us. Our plan right now is to travel for two years before Sophie starts school. We could travel the whole time, find a place we really love, and settle down somewhere unexpectedly. Or we could get to our first assignment and it might not be all that it’s cracked up to be. In that case, we could call it quits early and move to Boston.
I’m guessing we do eventually end up living in Boston, but I’m not going to rule anything out. Beth and I both have a part of us that always likes to travel. Needless to say, it was hard to leave the lives we had built in the Quad Cities. Hopefully it won’t be too long before we are able to visit.
