About Vagrant_reality

I am in the 'prime' of my life according to all those people who feel they are no longer in the prime of theirs... really I am just making the most of my time by experiencing, learning and taking part in what the world has to offer. I want to travel following my gut instincts, not some rigid plan! I don't have an end date, I don't even know what I will be doing a week from now and for a person who always had a 5-10 year plan this is an amazing feeling of freedom! I want to share my experiences with other people around the world in the hopes that one of those experiences will encourage them to create their own! Mostly, this blog is written by me for me, so I will always have something to look back at later on! However, if through this blog I give people the chance to live vicariously through me then that's cool too!

Why is my profile 'vagrant reality'?
The answer is really in the true definition of the word vagrant, which surprisingly doesn't only apply to drunks, prostitutes and homeless people!
    Definition of vagrant: One who has no established residence and wanders idly from place to place without lawful or visible means of support
    Origins of vagrant: Middle English vagraunt, from Anglo-French vageraunt, from present participle of vagrer to wander about, alteration (influenced by Latin vagari to wander) of wacrer to wander, of Germanic origin; akin to Old English wealcan to roll
