Bag Lady; A Backstory About Meredith San Diego

The term bag lady has always been a term of endearment for my style of travel—always carrying too much. Friends would often exclaim, “I can hear you coming down the hallway, bag lady!” Obviously organized, structured and planner are frequent adjectives to describe me. And I genuinely agree unapologetically that these three elements help keep me balanced in life.

Once a victim of my deep North American conditioning to work, work, work, and then work some more so that I can buy things and portray a certain lifestyle. I grew weary of the mundane and tediousness of it all day in and day out.

Eventually, I applied for and was accepted to serve my home country overseas as a Volunteer of the elite US Peace Corps. After more than a year of interviews and readiness programs, I was off to the other side of the globe for a 27-month contract in the Balkans. Extending my stay a handful of months, I made a decision to pivot and create a digital career from scratch… at age 35!

But first, I wanted to travel the world.
