Embarking on a New Adventure

04/06/17

 

2017 is going to be “my year.”

…And I actually mean it this time.

When I visited Lanzarote in 2016, it really helped to put my life into perspective. I’d been fed up with the lack of progression and excitement for a while, but this was my true turning point. I just loved sitting on the rocks by the ocean, taking everything in, and that’s when I knew I had to stop making excuses, and actually work towards the life I want to have and the person I want to be.

Buying a car, completing a digital marketing qualification and looking for a change in job is all well and good, but solo travel was always going to be a part of my reinvention and my journey to self discovery. After all, what better way to step out of your comfort zone than to jet off to a foreign country by yourself?

As I write this post, I’m sitting in the airport departure lounge, watching the world go by as I wait for my flight to Hungary to be called. I am brimming with anticipation, my mind a swirling cocktail of nerves and excitement. I watch men in business suits rushing by, groups of girls hanging around the shops and parents keeping an eye on their children as they slide around on those rolling, sit-on suitcases they seem to be obsessed with these days.

It makes me think about all the different people I could potentially meet on my travels. Any one of these humans around me could someday become a significant part of my life, and that thought alone is pretty darn incredible. I guess I’ll just have to wait and see what awaits me on the other side of the pond…

I’ll see you all in Budapest!
