I used to feel like I was the most boring person in the room and was embarassed at how much I enjoyed being a homebody, but during a rough year in my life, I discovered a sense of wanderlust and started to travel. Initially I read a lot of travel blogs that started or ended with: ‘How I quit my job to travel the world’, but I didn’t connect with that because I didn’t want that. I wanted to keep my ordinary life and still travel the world to the fullest extend. Maybe that’s crazy talk, but I’m up for the challenge.
The more I traveled the more I realized that my motivations to travel were rooted in pushing my limits, self discovery and personal growth. Originally I wanted to start this as just a travel blog but that quickly started to feel restricting because I wanted to write about so much more. Now I’m writing this mostly for myself because I know that maintaining this will be a great way to journal my experiences, travels and personal growth and keep me accountable to my goals.
