I am one of those people that was blessed to have a passport since I was born. I remember being shocked when I met people my age that have never even gotten one before. Having parents from another country meant traveling there frequently. And we did... for years. I was used to taking an 11 hour flight down to Argentina once every other year.
As I got older, I appreciated traveling a lot more and then during my college years I was blessed to take a trip to Europe. This was such a life changing experience for me. It opened my eyes to such a rich history that we lack here in the USA. This fueled something inside of me and I've constantly daydreamed of my next adventure. The following year, I studied abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina (I had never been to the capital) and spent a couple of days in Uruguay. And then...nothing.
Well, I've taken small trips around the states but nothing crazy. I've been left with this hole and longing to just pack up my stuff and leave. I've blamed money, being too busy, being afraid to go alone, etc. But something recently clicked that if I want to travel, now is the time to do it. At 27, I'm surrounded by people settling down, getting married, and popping out kids. I'm not there yet. I feel like there is another path for me. I recently booked a trip to Iceland with my best friend, and I couldn't be more excited. I think now is the time for me to step it up and do what I love. This blog will host pictures, stories, and documentation of my adventures.
Now I need to get ready and start planning. See you soon.
