Hi! Welcome to http://www.toothontheloose.com, my new blog. My name is Becky, and I am a dentist as well as a travel junkie.
Over the course of the next ten months, I have quite an adventure planned. Within the next two weeks (!!!), I’ll be leaving the city of Boston, MA, where I’ve lived for over seven years and returning to Cleveland, OH, my hometown. But not for long! In March I’ll be boarding a one-way flight to Honduras, where I will begin my travels throughout Central America before heading to Europe in the late spring and eventually to Asia in the late summer/early fall. I told the folks I’ll be back by Christmas.
I am referring to this journey as my sabbatical rather than just a long vacation because so much of it is going to be a learning experience. Between language study, dental volunteering, a pilgrimage, and planning a long-term international trip on a finite budget (um, and starting a blog?), the next ten months are intended to be a challenge. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
This blog will not only be a platform to share stories and photos of my adventures along the road, but also a way for me to better keep in touch with the dear friends, family, coworkers, and patients that I’ll be missing when I’m gone! Expect some random musical (ahem David Bowie) and movie references , too. ‘Cause I tend to do that.
Thanks for coming along for the ride!
