So our hostel is a party hostel lol only realised it when we signed it but jesus it is hopping. We left tonight to go watch some Muay Thai fighting in Rasta bar and it was empty and when we came back the place was hopping. If your looking to party and have a good time come stay here @apachebeachclub#phiphiisland wristband gives you discounted drinks.
Today officially marks my last two weeks of work. ✌🏼I can’t believe today is here & it marks a HUGE milestone. Ever since I was little I have always been an explorer. Ask my dad, when we would go on camping trips or hikes as a family it was always us two running off trail, climbing rocks, & finding hidden gems. And that curiosity & adventure I had as a little kid has only gotten stronger as I have grown up.
Making this decision was not easy by any means. While everyone dreams of just up & quitting to do what they love (for me it is to travel), the act of doing it comes with A LOT of emotions. First and foremost...excitement, anticipation, exhilaration, thrill for doing something that you have always dreamed of doing. But also hesitation, fear, self doubt, anxiety, apprehension, uneasiness...What if I can’t find another job? What if I am making a big mistake for my professional career? What if I completely deplete my savings? What if something happens while I am travelling? What if I get lonely without my friends and family close by? So.Many.What.Ifs. 🙅🏼♀️
But if there is one thing I taken away from the past year, it is that the best opportunities in life come when you get outside of your comfort zone & take a risk. My life has been comfortable, stable & secure...& I am one hundred percent grateful for all of that but I have also come to realize you only get one life. As much as we don’t like to think about it, no one knows how much time they are going to get on this earth. What I do know is that when my time comes I don’t want to look back on my life & settle for comfortable, stable & secure. It’s cliche, but life can be too short to not do the things that make you happy. 🙏🏼
I can’t say if a few months backpacking & a cross country move will solve what I feel is missing in my life but all I know is that life is filled with the unknown. We can’t predict what our future holds or if our decisions are the right ones but I feel very certain these next adventures hold more opportunity than just continuing to live in my comfort zone.
So in the name of the big, bad, FEAR 👉🏼 tell me something that you want to do but fear has held you back?
I recently spoke to a capacity audience at Capt. Avery Museum.
I introduced my book, “Threadbare Tales From Silk Road”, which is being readied for possible publication. I returned a couple of weeks later to listen to a great blues ensemble.
My latest paintings were showcased at the event.
When things go wrong you have to laugh! On this page I want to share real travel experiences, not perfectly curated photos! This is the only photo I took of myself in San Jose (it’s actually a still from a video) but I think it perfectly captures my day there! We laughed a lot but everything was CLOSED! Check out the video in my bio! ✨
