Hello! My name is Tanja (pronounced just like Tanya) and I decided to start this blog about living alone, being single and traveling alone, after one more night of crying myself to sleep. I’m tired of it and very worried about my future. No one wants to be alone, for the most part. I’m 50 years old, been divorced a long time and raised a wonderful son who has graduated from college and is now off on his own starting a new and exciting chapter in his life. With my son moving away and no other family near or significant other to help support me during this big change, I felt I needed to do something to help me cope with the loneliness and sadness I feel everyday, and to do some real soul searching and start to like me. I hope to, not only find some comfort and help myself through writing and traveling, but if I can also reach, inspire and help others along the way, than this will all be worth while. You can read more about my life for a better understanding of where I come from and what I’ve been through, in the “Welcome” blog. Thank you for being here 🙂
