Well, here we are. My first blog! I’ve been traveling the world for a few years now and have finally decided to organize my thoughts and document my journeys … or maybe I’m just looking for a way to be productive while I’m currently signed-off from work on medical leave due to a fractured wrist….either way, I like it!
Anyway, my goal for this blog is to practice writing and documenting and also to reach out to other Twenty-Somethings who find themselves in my position. “What position is that”, you may ask. Well, you see, most people in their mid-twenties can be grouped into one of three categories:
- Focused on starting a family
- Focused on an exciting career
- Not focused at all, not quite sure when everyone suddenly became “adults” and freaking out slightly about whether or not life will “come together” before dreaded age 30 (slash secretly happy that still do not have major responsibilities or commitments…)
In case you couldn’t tell, I’m a category 3 all the way. Fortunately, I know that I am not alone! In fact, there are hundreds (maybe thousands) of 3’s out there in the world, and I know it because I’ve met them through my travels. I think traveling really appeals to us 3’s, in fact, because we find ourselves without the burden (I mean responsibility) of family or career that would tie us to one location. So, for all you 3’s out there (or even any of you 1’s or 2’s who may have stumbled upon this post), hello! And welcome! I hope that my ramblings can help you to realize that you are not alone and that world-travel is not just the cliché dream of a dewy-eyed undergraduate, but a real and perfectly attainable goal. And not just a goal, actually, but a lifestyle! So please, read on, be inspired, send inspiration, and enjoy! Yay!
