It’s not often that you read about the “sacrifice” side of travelling. Behind all those Instagram pictures, happy selfies and mountain-top photos, there is a story. Everyone has a story, a past and a home that they have left behind to reach that mountain top. And no matter how long people go travelling for, it is human instinct to miss those close to us when we are miles apart. Choosing to roam free around the world and leave family and friends behind is a tough one to decide on and there is no doubt that me being a home-bird, I will miss a lot of people. However, it is a choice that must be made or else I would never be giving myself this opportunity…and I can’t wait to see what lies in store for me having made that choice.
In the past 6 months, I have made sacrifices so that I can be as free as possible when I go travelling. Whether it be relationships, money or your career…it all changes when the opportunity to travel is grasped. Living with these transitions and changes in the run up to my departure date has been an experience and a big life lesson. I have learned to let go of certain things in order to live my life to the fullest and stretch my boundaries in ways I could never have imagined. The exciting part is, I know the learning isn’t over and in fact, I will learn more about the world, the people in it and those people’s cultures more so in the time I travel than I ever have.
Throughout this exciting adventure, I aim to share the highs and lows of travelling with you. My blog posts, images and videos will bring you real insights into the world as I see it and I hope to be as informative as possible along the way.
