As some may be aware, Steph and myself are preparing and saving for our upcoming adventure.
The most common question people continue to ask (albeit annoying) is why? why do you want to go traveling? why now? why don’t you want to just settle down? Well, my answer is why not?
what some people don’t realize, is that there is an age restriction on working holiday visas. But without this it makes it much harder to find and or obtain a different entry visa, and to finance your travels without working is nigh on impossible as we all know savings don’t last forever.
So it boils down to this, in 2 years i turn 30! and and i didn’t want to look back with any regret, but i knew if i didn’t take this opportunity that is exactly what would happen.
How did this decision come about? well Steph and i worked together punching the 9 to 5, we used to sit there exchanging our own travel stories, nostalgic and still excited about everything we had seen and been a part of. We began to search flights and hostel choices, visas, and backpacks. Before we knew what was happening we had agreed that Canada would be our next adventure but this time we would go together. So just like that it happened!
Now we are planning, saving and gathering bits and pieces we will need for our trip next march 🙂
So back to the why, this is why i am writing this after all, i guess unless you have experience the unknown, the nomadic lifestyle, the wanderlust, its hard to explain the peace it brings. It is so true when people say they need to go and “find themselves” (i know cheesy right!) but you really do become the person you want to be, but never knew you were.
Its all about the experience, and getting to share that experience with a close friend is priceless.
Anything is possible if you want it enough, and life is too short to not really live it and just let it pass you by.
You only get one shot at life, make it a good one. xxx Daisy xxx
