The root of travel anxiety

The root of travel anxiety

Making the decision to move to Bali came in two parts. At the risk of sounding cliché, my body and soul knew it, before my mind did. Mother Nature granted me an extra week in Bali and all flights were cancelled. I had heard about this town called Canggu, a surfing mecca where east meets west.

Loneliness vs. being alone

Loneliness vs. being alone

I pull the steel door handle closer to me and use my left hand to put the left headphone up to my ear. What song should I start with today? This has become my morning tradition, I ponder, as I wait for the lift.

20 people, 30 days, global possibilities.

I now see that one decision can change everything. Everything has a consequence. A single word can determine the course of your life. At least it did for me. I didn’t realise it at the time, all I knew is that it felt different. Unfamiliar, yet hopeful, boundless in its possibilities. ‘Yes.’

The Cycle of San Juan Del Sur

The Cycle of San Juan Del Sur

If there’s something you never want to be up against, it’s time. Running down San Juan Del Sur’s colourful main street with no shoes, I’m on a mission. I follow the messy power lines above me and shoot a friendly smile at my smoothie lady.

Detachment: The Hardest Part of Being a Traveller

I sit in my strategic airport floor position. Feet crossed, shoes off and notepad open to a blank white page. My flight ticket resting between the bent, loved pages of my passport.

What surf teaches you about life

I’m sitting up on my board. One leg hanging over each side, as I let the ocean move me softly and wait for the next set. Only seconds ago, three waves peeled their way towards the shore, beautifully in sync. I didn’t catch any of them. Sometimes, I like to just sit out here.

WHY DO YOU TRAVEL?

To experience & learn. To explore new paths and re-discover home. To brave loneliness & forge your own path. 

  • HOME vs AWAY

    You thrive on the differences and observe the similarities. Challenge societal assumptions. Discover a renewed appreciation for home.

  • PERSONAL GROWTH

    Travel is about transformation, not transportation. It’s the journey that goes on within that really matters. And the great thing is, we can tap into this at any time.

  • LESSONS & PERSPECTIVES

    Travel brings new perspectives and insights. It removes the filters we see the world through. You see it with new eyes.

  • LIVING ABROAD

    Just like home, living abroad is full of challenges. You learn that life goes on without you at home. Yet, you wouldn’t trade in the world for the freedom the suitcase life gives you.
