A 10 Year Old Traveler

A 10 Year Old Traveler
I have a vexing problem, it is not obviously clear how long I have traveled, however it has lead me to an interesting word game.

We I think are in the 21 St Century, I guess we have finished 20 and working on the time period from 2000-2100.

I think and feel I have finished 10 years and I am working on the time period between 10 and 11. So am I to day, I have traveled for 10 years or should I say I have traveled for 11, it is strange quandary and totally irrelevant.

Pie de la Cuesta - Playa Luces

Whether I have finished 10 and am working on 11, or to say I am in my 11 year of travel seems prone to word games. This whole thing become vexing because I never took off to travel, I am more or less and accidental traveler, I started to travel and just forgot to go home, or never wanted to go home. I did not move to another place, I did not leave a place; I was visiting Pie de la Cuesta and just could not bring myself to return to work. I suppose a continuous sabbatical from life is a closer definition of my travels.

I took time off from what is normal life and decided to live a life less normal…
I feel close to sure, not too sure, but relatively sure as of March, I am not sure at the beginning or end, but something March; I finished my 10 full years of travel, a decade of no decisions. I think travel is a leap year of life, a place where time needs some extra space.
