For years I’ve known that I want to travel. It is something that I have always been passionate about. From being interested to student exchanges, studying abroad, gap years, and just plain living and working overseas – I’ve finally bought myself the ticket that will get me achieving one of my largest scale goals/dreams in my life.
Why have I waited so long? In a word – fear. But in saying that, I also had many other goals and priorities at the same time. Looking back, finishing high school and moving into my 18th year of life – being the vulnerable and naïve girl that I was there is no way that I would have had the confidence to travel solo or move to another country to live/work. Yes I was scared. I still am! But since leaving high school 5 years ago, I have come a long way. And if I begin to list all the priorities I have in my life; I’ve pretty much achieved every one of them so far except for travel.
So in 5 years I have achieved so much, I have learnt a lot. And I am ready to finally see the world the way I want to – slow enough to see the true culture of a country and active enough that I challenge myself to continually achieve more goals that I have set for myself.
