    If you need a place to rest your head in England or Scotland… I can hook you up (I gots people in that neck of the world)! 🙂 This is a very adventurous adventure you are embarking upon. I wish you nothing but good vibes, safety, and FUN! I hope you find the answers to the questions that you seek, my dear! xoxo

    Italy, Nepal, and Australia are my favorite countries, albeit quite different from one another. I greatly enjoyed your piece about leaving your PhD program. I left mine as well after I was diagnosed with breast cancer, had 3 surgeries, and my mother died – along with some unpleasantness that took place at my school. I left with a master’s in 2012 and still am angry about the unpleasantness. Like you, however, I believe there’s more than one way to accomplish meaningful things in life, and being inside the PhD box was too stultifying for me. So, my feelings are mixed, but I am now free to make my own way in the world without the baggage of that box! (FYI, I entered the program in my late 40s and am 52 now, so I had lots of pre-PhD life experience!)
