Wanderlust - Consumed by the need to travel
I didn't see the point in going to college for something I already knew how to do, or could google.
I have always loved writing and from what I have read and experienced, as long as you have a passion and a desire, starting a blog is as easy as writing your ABC's, literally.
So I decided to dive right in and see where the world will take me next.
The thought of going to college and missing out on 4 years of travel opportunities didn't exactly float my boat.
For 18 years, my parents have taught me to be my own person, to follow my dreams with ENTHUSIASM and passions, and to listen to what God is telling me I should do. I am simply a girl overflowing with wanderlust and love for sharing that experience with the world.
I want to experience the cultures, the languages, the lifestyles in countries, towns, cities, and villages all over the world. I want to sleep under the stars and not know where my my next flight will take me.
I have fallen in love with the world around me, and I want to share the health and culture of the world with you.
I see travel as the chance to live freely and learn new things, long after you graduate school.
When you travel you are immersed into a culture that is unlike anything you've lived
My Family In Kauai, Hawaii Over My Birthday
before - the language, food, use of colors, clothes, personalities, lifestyle, relationships, traditions, homes, the speed of life- they're all different everywhere you go.
My family went to Hawaii in 2016 right before I applied to be a Health Coach, and sure it's still in the U.S, but it felt like a completely different world. Everyone lives by the "ish time" ( 1-ish, 2-ish).
It's laid back and everyone there is genuinely interested in living a happy life. It's a beach lifestyle
It's interesting to go to a place like that, and then return home and have a mini culture shock when your friends are on time rather than being late to everything.
Experience Commonalities Differently.
Have you ever tried hot chocolate in ITaly?
If you have you'll know that it's nothing like the chocolate here in the states.
When I was 14 I went to Italy ( it was my first time traveling without my family) and I ordered a Cioccolata Calda (hot chocolate) expecting to have ordered a cup of American
styled hot chocolate, when they came out with my order I was very confused.
The 8 oz cup was filled to the top with rich, melted dark chocolate.
It was amazing, but definitely not what I had thought it would be.
In Italy, when you order a hot chocolate, you are literally ordering melted chocolate, where as her you get either water or milk mixed with sugar and usually an artificially produced coco powder
It's kinda exciting to have that happen, you end up expanding your comfort zone by trying new versions of things, it tips your world a little bit.
When you travel, try new things, live in the moment of experiencing another culture,
If something is the same as back home, save it for at home.
Go skydiving, try driving in England, eat outlandishly different foods you've never heard of, go Spelunking in Greece.
If you go on a trip and do exactly the same thing that you do at home, why don't you just stay home and watch the Amazing Race or videos of other people experiencing them? Because to travel is to get away from your regular routine, switch things up for a bit.
Here you will find amazing ways to fulfill all the potential your trip has to offer, get inspiration for your next journey, learn about cultures and lifestyles around the world, how to make a living as a traveler!
