Tom Thumb across Europe?

Hi Everyone,

A new page. For a new beginning. Yet again.

I have decided to go on a journey. For a year. To leave behind all that was safe but made me unhappy ( job, house, city, rain, noise) to travel places in order to feel happy again.
I don't have a plan.
To make this journey a happy one and from past experience I listed the 5 elements that have contributed to make me happy. Therefore I hope to include these in my trip wherever i go.
I like painting.
I like writing.
I like nature. (Silence)
I like food. ( I mean good food!)
I like the sun. (i am aware that I can't carry the sun around with me)

In terms of destination, the wisest people have said before that it is the journey that counts not the destination.
Still for any trip, everyone needs a departure point and an arrival point.
The departure point I know. It was Dublin, Ireland.

One mandatory stop is Brittany. Where I currently am.

Other optional stops (in an ideal world) would be Guerande, St-Gervais d'Auvergne in the Massif Central, Aquitaine, Lodève in Languedoc-Roussillon, the City of Light near Milan, The Adriatic coastline, Medjugorje, and last Stop the Greek Islands.

I don't really know if I can achieve that long a journey by myself. 

For all that I know i may realise that I want to stay put. I may realise that travelling to this extent is not much for me after all. I may decide to stay in St Gervais or Lodeve which are places where two Buddhist center reside and make this an inner journey instead.
I'd like to leave a creative imprint wherever I go. Like a Tom Thumb who would leave behind creative crumbs.
Along the way, I would hope to post some of those creative crumbs on this blog.
In short, we will see. But I shall try to be happy.
