My story isn’t about how I quit my job to travel around the world, it’s also not about how I became a Travel Channel host because neither one is true. I haven’t done either... yet!
Since the age of 3, I have traveled to different countries. I was constantly traveling even though I had a regular life - going to school, having neighborhood friends etc... Even though I had a regular life, I still didn’t quite feel like I belonged. I felt a bit out of place and realized that most of the time, it was because people couldn’t relate to my traveling lifestyle.
At the age of 4, I was in Rio de Janeiro; age 8, I was in Peru; age 10, I was trying to find my way out of a Maze in Hampton Court Palace in The UK; age 14, I was shopping in the Grand Bazaar in Turkey.
No one I knew could relate to any of my experiences, so I felt rather out of place. Especially, since traveling was a major part of my life.
As an outlet, I decided to blog about my experiences and slowly it turned into a place where I could offer travel tips and guides.
Finding My Tribe
After a few years of blogging, I found other people just like me! Bloggers, creatives, travelers...people that shared similar experiences and that could totally relate to my travel lifestyle.
My story may not be a rags to riches type of story, but I do feel that my story shows how blogging has helped me find people with similar experiences and has helped me help others with travel!
