It seems hard to imagine that just one year ago I was working at a fashion house, itching to leave New York and have an adventure.
When I started this blog last July, I had no idea that it would change the entire direction of my life in such a positive way. When I left my job a few weeks later and decided to plunge into the world of freelancing and self employment, I set a goal for myself. I would dedicate the next year of my life to following my dream and passion for travel, fashion, and writing. If at the end of that year I felt that this wasn’t a viable career option, or I just simply couldn’t make things work, I would return back to the world of corporate fashion, and simply remember this year as one of the most exciting times of my life.
Well, its one year later and it has truly been an incredible journey. I have road tripped through Northern India, backpacked through Peru, wandered through Europe, and explored a bit more of my hometown, New York City.
While this year has been more than I could ever have imagined, it is the future that truly excites me now. My trial year has passed and has proven to be a success. Each month brings new and exciting opportunities, and I now know that this is what I want to keep doing, as long as it continues to bring joy to both my life and my readers.
Whats up next:
I am currently on a short layover in London, before my month long trip to Barcelona, Ibiza, and Madrid. I have some really exciting things planned, including a week long teaching stint in the Madrid countryside and a 9 hour ferry ride to the island of Ibiza!
My promise to you:
Now that my trial year is up, I truly feel it is time to take this site to the next level. Over the next few months I will aim to make my site more efficient and reader friendly. If you have any suggestions, or would like to see certain things in my site, please feel free to leave your comments below! I truly enjoy hearing from everyone, and hopefully inspiring a few people out there to travel more and worry less.
