This blog post idea came to me randomly like a lot of the topics I write about and I wanted to write an inspirational travel piece for potential world travellers. As most of you may know I started travelling almost 8 years ago which seems totally crazy. I was 19 and basically wanted to get a grip with adult life and see the world in the process. With most of my friends in college, it helped me to push myself to travel alone- the best decision of my life. Since then I have met too many best friends to name, had so much work and life experience and have been given opportunities people can only dream about. Today I am a fully qualified beauty therapist, advanced 500hr yoga teacher and environmentalist, all of which would never have happened if I hadn't of taken that first step.
It's a lot of people's dream to get out there and see the world but it seems a lot of people are nervous and afraid of the unknown exactly as I was. The website was set up by me to encourage those people to go forth and conquer the world through first hand travel Information and my own personal experiences. If I had a cent for every time someone asks me how I afford it, do I work, tells me how lucky I am or even calls me a dreamer- I would be a rich lady... And that I am not! Yes just like everyone else, I work and I work hard. Like most Virgos when I have a goal to focus on then there is no stopping me and for the past few years every cent I have saved has been put straight into the travel fund.
Still, with the questions being asked on a regular basis I try to reply to each and every travel advice query and provide links to my info blogs, my recent experiences and my own research to help others live their dream. This blog has followed me around the world for the past two years and the previous 5 years of travel we're written down and turned into my first ever novel which I hope to have published at a later stage. My journey is nowhere near complete and this 'travelling' life I portray is literally just my life now and I don't want anything other than this for the time being. I am the happiest I have ever been thanks to yoga, healthy living, outdoor activities, incredible friends and the chance to see the lives of people in other countries far and wide. This is a life I have chosen, a life I have made for myself, and no I am not lucky because at in life you make your own luck and you would be surprised how far optimism, positivity and manifestation can take you.
Trust the universe to know what's right for you.
