Are You an Anywhereist (Or Do You Want to Be?)
Do you want to be an Anywhereist? What does it mean, anyway? Do you want to:
- Live anywhere in the world you want, for as long or short a time as you want?
- Live full-time as an expat in another country?
- Travel full time?
- Get away from harsh winters but still keep your home base in the community you’re in now?
- Explore someplace new for a month or two — longer than your vacation time allows?
- Stay in your home and community because you’re happy there, but you’re working remotely or running your own online business?
If so, you’re an Anywhereist!
How to Balance Adventure and Risk as an Anywhereist
Thirty-two years ago, my husband and I started a big adventure with a pretty big risk. We sold our house in upstate New York, packed up our furniture and our four kids and moved to Florida. Without jobs.
Our children ranged in age from seven years to 12. In school, the youngest was finishing first grade, the oldest was in seventh. We were pulling them out of the small school where they knew everyone into larger schools where they knew no one.
We were tired of the cold and the grey skies. We wanted sun and adventure!
A lot of folks thought we were crazy. “You’ll be back,” one member of our church warned my husband.
It was a risky move. For one thing — and it was a biggie — we had no jobs in Florida.

Vincent Van Gogh painted about 2100 pieces of art in his career — most of them during an incredible creative streak.
I learned this when I had the pleasure of attending the Immersive Van Gogh Experience in Orlando.
I knew about Van Gogh, of course. Sunflowers, windmills, starry nights, and cutting off ears. . . but one thing I didn’t know was how intensely time limited his painting career was.
According to Wikipedia:
In a decade, he created about 2,100 artworks, including around 860 oil paintings, most of which date from the last two years of his life. [Emphasis mine]
