One Year Travel Anniversary
My travel anniversary has come and gone for when I left on my solo backpacking trip around the world. I took off on July 13th, 2016! Wow, I can’t believe it has been over a year. Looking back I had been planning my escape for years. Backpacking has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember. To know that my dream was fulfilled is amazing, I made a dream come true.
My journey started off in Amsterdam, then I went to Tomorrowland, did a week long cruise in Croatia, worked in Bulgaria, partied in Ibiza, surfed in Portugal, fell in and out of love, played with elephants in Thailand, climbed lookouts in Hawaii and Swam in warm Australian waters. It was hard and exhausting yet also a few of the best months of my life! As soon as the end of my trip was insight, I was planning to hop on the next plane once I could afford it, but “reality” set in.
positions, I worked hard preparing for interviews, yet none of them came through. In the mean time I worked at my old bar job, then as a PSW and finally as a cashier. Finally getting out of debt and was starting to save again.I now see not getting those jobs was really a blessing. I was always secretly hoping that I wouldn’t get each position. They all terrified me. I didn’t want to feel trapped somewhere not knowing what I was working towards except a bigger day check. I wanted to be travelling around the world and find a way to make that my lifestyle.
On this blog you will find Travel, Lifestyle and Artistic guidance. I shall share my passions for different countries, cities, people, food, art, culture and scenery around the world. I am going to share my travel experiences to show you how to and how not to travel, with all the places to go and things to do. I am going to share stories of growth and change through this experience. I am going to share guides as I learn how to become a digital nomad. I hope through this blog I can connect with people who like myself have a million reasons not to follow their dreams but do so anyway.
