In 2011 I quit my 9-5 to go travel and experience the world. I wanted different stories, problems, discoveries and connections “before it was too late”. Now, a year and a half after I left my home in Seattle, I’m still living abroad and planning my next move. I’ve always been fascinated by other cultures, places, traditions, languages and people. I love piecing a new place together, appreciating what makes it special and seeing how different people live their lives. I also don’t have the slightest clue of where I want to be or what I want to be doing, so am using this time to figure that out. I believe that travel or living in new places make me a more aware, understanding, adaptable and grateful person — and that it will ultimately lead me to where I should be in life.
