Yep, today is a personal post. I mean, of course, everything I share with you on this travel blog is from my personal experience but this one is different. It’s my birthday blog post! Today, I turn 26 and to commemorate the completion of my quarter life (assuming of course that I live to 100 years), I would like to share with you my 25th year in travel.
To say that I have traveled a lot in my 25th year is probably an understatement. I’ve spent a lot of time (and money!) trying to explore as much as possible. I believe that traveling taught (and is teaching!) me a lot of life lessons I otherwise would not have learned if I stay put.
I want to take this opportunity to thank all the people whom I have shared my traveling life with in the past year. I hope that this year, I would again meet new people and share experiences as I embark on new journeys. I thank VSO, my co-volunteers/travel buddies, my CouchSurfing buddies and co-adventurers, my family and friends who encourage (or tolerate!) me and my passion for travel. And to You, whoever or whatever You might be, for always keeping me safe and allowing me to live this life fully.
On my 26th, I know that my wanderlust will not be satiated as easily. And that my feet will be itching more than it used to be. And I know, in my heart of hearts, that no matter how tough it would be, I would always find a way. Life is short so take a leap of faith. Let’s wander, explore and discover. Come and journey with me!
