I truly believe that following our dreams is they key to happiness, even if it’s scary. My dreams scare me, but they make me so happy too. In this post I talk about my travel dreams, my fears and how I’ve taken the most difficult decisions of my life.
Many travel blogs start with the same story: “I quit my 9-to-5 job and now I travel the world forever”. It might seem that leaving a regular job for full time travel is the key to happiness. But is it so? For everybody? These are my personal reflections.
A few months ago I wrote about the challenges and rewards of solo travel, but I still hadn’t talked about the reality of long term travel. Here I present you the 15 challenges and rewards of traveling long term.
During the last two days of the road trip we went from Mae Hong Son to Chiang Mai via Mae Sariang and Doi Inthanon. And it happened again: my best memories are not from the places, but people. A woman who gave us tea. And I learnt that it is important to smile, and give, in order to receive.
Travel gives us the opportunity to challenge our limits. In Mae Hong Son, where we stopped after several days on the road, I tested mine. One of the highlights of the city is to do a jungle trekking, and long treks are a challenge for me since I have a small problem in my back.
