Where I’ve Been

Some of you have been kind enough to reach out and ask me where I’ve been lately. In the blogosphere, I’ve basically fallen off the face of the earth. In real life, I’ve been lost in a different way; going through a divorce so cataclysmic to me that I lost interest in most of the things that used to bring me joy, including travel. It was hard to imagine going out and exploring the world when my own world was shattered.

I’ve been in a dark place. A surreal place. My divorce included a betrayal so complete that it made me question my whole world. It changed me.

But I’m slowly coming back.

I’m venturing out into the world again. I’ve made travel plans for 2016 that I’m really excited about and am ready to share some of the travel experiences that took place while all this was happening. Because right after my now ex-husband shared his devastating confession with me, we were part of a Papal Audience in Rome and I swear, the Pope was speaking directly to me.

I’ll share that story next.

I’ve missed you all!

  1. Hey Juliann, we’ve missed you. Nothing we can say will suffice but you’ll get back to the surface again by degrees and maybe, in time, you’ll come to see these events as the end of one chapter and the beginning of the next. Looking forward to my travel blog fix in the middle of this bleak midwinter 🙂

  2. It’s good to have you back, and I hope it gets less dark progressively, albeit I know these journeys occur in phases. Looking forward to hearing your travel stories and plans. Take care and take your time. We’ll still be here.

  3. I feel for you… Been there or somewhere maybe close, divorce, betrayal… Seven years ago now and thought my world had ended.
    So I wish you strength …

      • Yes I suddenly discovered a whole world of people who’d had an experience something close to mine – some fabulous people. Those small connections meant everything to me in the rawness of it all.
        And for me suddenly one day I realised I hadn’t woken up thinking the same things over and over in a loop and I knew that what people had told me (these days will pass) was maybe true.
        Take good care

  4. I thought about you when I recently wrote, after not having posted anything for a while. The real life stuff gets really tough for all of us at various times and I’m sorry it’s been so rough on you as well. Still, it was so nice to see you in my inbox again and I’m looking forward to your next adventure. Wishing you all the best.

  5. From another who’s been there – although perhaps not in quite such a devastating way as you – and who continues to travel, work, live and blog…take heart, it will get better. And you’ll also (hopefully, as I did) find a whole new freedom in being able to make your own travelling decisions (where, when, how…) without having to consider anyone except yourself. That’s probably no consolation right now, but I wish you all the best as you forge a new path for yourself. Welcome back!

  6. Oh my goodness, I’m glad you’re back with us but so, so sorry to hear what’s been going on in your life. Love and strength – and I can’t wait to hear about where you’re going next!!

  7. Oh Juliann, I’m so sorry to hear about the upheaval in your life. Big hug. I’m glad that you’re feeling even a measure better, and I hope things keep going in that direction. (I’m sure they will!) ❤
