Charlotte Simpson, aka Traveling Black Widow, travels the world—often solo— and appears to be in her 60s. Her photos beg the question: what’s your excuse?
I’ve been subscribed to her for a few months now and she is a constant inspiration to just go for it! Not only is she an inspiration to travel and see the world, but also to let go of fear and step out of your comfort zone. I’ve had co-workers that never left the state of Georgia, able-bodied people I knew in L.A…………………. that had never been to the beach or the valley. Aaaaaand they seemed kinda ok with it! Scary! In 2012, I made it a goal of mine to go to at least one concert and travel somewhere I’ve never been every year for the rest of my life. Even if it’s just to a neighboring town or a quick road trip, I have kept up with my perpetual goal. I used to fret: what about when I have a baby? What about when I get old? Charlotte helped silence those worries. If you really want to do something, time won’t wait for you to be unafraid or get out of your own way. The time will pass anyway, right? Might as well enjoy the ride! And if you can inspire others along the way, you’re really winning.
Where’s the last place you traveled? Where to next??
I’m wishing you the best year of your life! Thanks for being here!
