Can you have a life crisis at the age of 22? Well at the time for me it sure felt that way. I had graduated college, had a full time job, a nice apartment and a boyfriend. To everyone that knew me, I had a great life. To me, I felt like the walls were slowly closing in. I looked around at my life and realized I wanted absolutely nothing to do with it. My original dreams of seeing the world and owning nothing more then what fit into a backpack, had been pushed aside for a 9 to 5 office job. I felt like I had sold my soul for a good paycheque.
Realizing that I was far to young to give up on my dreams, I decided to do something extreme. I quit my job, sold everything I owned and booked a one way ticket to England. I spent most of my childhood living in England so I had friends and family there. It seemed like a good place to start, a soft landing so to speak. I know a lot of people thought I was completely nuts for doing this. For me, I felt like a giant weight had lifted off of my shoulders the minute I stepped on that plane.
My travels started out in England and would take me to all sorts of wonderful and exciting places including, Wales, Amsterdam, Germany, Prague, Greece and Italy. Six years later I look back on those memories and know that those experiences helped shape who I am today.
More to come on these adventures soon.
